Ethernet, although initially conceived as a Local Area Network technology, has been steadily making inroads into access and core networks. This has led to a need for higher link speeds, which are now reaching 100 Gbit/s. Packet processing at this rate represents a significant challenge, that needs to be met efficiently, while minimizing power consumption and chip area. This level of throughput favours a pipelined approach, thus this paper takes a traditional pipeline and breaks it down to mini… CONTINUE READING
