Shared memory IP: Parallel packet buffering architecture

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

LancsNet parallel shared memory (PSM) IP is an innovative and high-performance packet buffer IP that is well suited for high and ultra-high bandwidth (up to 200 Gbps) applications. The memory is design to buffer multiple Ethernet streams simultaneously and eliminates the need for local line card buffers as well as avoiding HOL blocking effect. The design is highly configurable and is provided a convenient AMBA 4 AXI4-Stream interface for easy system integration.
