The design of most systems-on-a-chip (SoC) architectures rely on simulation as a means for performance estimation. Such designs usually start with a parameterizable template architecture, and the design space exploration is restricted to identifying the suitable parameters for all the architectural components. However, in the case of heterogeneous SoC(More)
The paper describes the need for early analysis tools to enable developers of today's system-on-a-chip (SoC) designs to take advantage of pre-designed components, such as those found in the IBM Blue Logic ® Library, and rapidly explore high-level design alternatives to meet their system requirements. We report on a new approach for developing high-level(More)
We present a design methodology for a modular network processor architecture that leads to a balanced, service-defined mix between programmable processor cores, configurable hardware assists, and specialized coprocessors. Whereas the processor cores address the flexibility and extendibility needs of the networking market, the hardware components offload the(More)
High-profile web servers often become the victim of web server overload Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks. Motivations of such attacks range from technical challenge (e.g. script kiddies) to financial profit (e.g. blackmailing the web server's owner). This paper presents the DIADEM Firewall architecture that allows an ISP to protect its customers(More)
Network processors use highly parallel architectures to improve performance and reach multi-gigabit line-speeds. In this paper, we emulate a pipeline in a highly parallel non-programmable industrial InfiniBand Host Channel Adapter to make a performance and bottleneck analysis and, at the same time, explore the potential of a pipelined architecture.(More)
