Abstract: Memory access rate is a primary performance bottleneck in high-performance networking systems. The MoSys Bandwidth Engine® family of ICs provides a significant improvement in effective memory performance by using high-speed serial I/Os, many banks of memory, a low-latency, highly efficient protocol, and intelligence within the device. The first member of the family can perform 2 billion 72-bit reads per second or 1 billion read-modify-write operations per second.
