The GigaNetIC project aims to develop high-speed components for networking applications based on massively parallel architectures. A central part of this project is the design, evaluation, and realization of a parameterizable network processing unit. In this paper we present a design methodology for network processors which encompasses the research areas(More)
This paper addresses the design automation of instruction set extensions for application-specific processors with emphasis on network processing. Within this domain, increasing performance demands and the ongoing development of network protocols both call for flexible and performance-optimized processors. Our approach represents a holistic methodology for(More)
The Internet-SCSI protocol [iSCSI] allows a client to interact with a remote SCSI-capable target by means of block-oriented commands encapsulated within TCP/IP packets. Thereby, iSCSI greatly simplifies storage virtualization, since clients can access storage in a unified manner, no matter whether the I/O-path is short or long distance. Intermediate devices(More)
