With industry-leading throughput for multifunction printers, enterprise control plane, consumer NAS systems, wireless access points and industrial applications, the APM8639x features dual 1.2GHz PowerPC® 465 cores, high-speed I/O, advanced offload acceleration engines, intelligent packet processing and AppliedMicro’s versatile ARM®–based SLIMpro™ subsystem.
In order to meet the needs of very low power and all-IP networks, the APM8639x includes two dedicated Ethernet Offload Engines. The Ethernet Offload Engine provides for Inline TCP/IP and UDP checksums along with Energy Efficient Ethernet capabilities (802.3az).
The APM8639x also includes classification engines to provide for flow, CoS, and port-based classification of data with 64-byte packet line-rate performance. They are programmable and can support IPv4, IPv6, and AppleTalk, as well as customer proprietary protocols.
The APM8639x features also a Queue Manager / Traffic Manager that can be used to centralize management of all transaction traffic, reduce communication overhead between software and hardware, and perform inter-processor message passing and work scheduling.
AppliedMicro’s APM8639x offers secure boot and authentication and state of the art crypto capabilities that address a variety of mission critical and sensitive system applications. The cryptographic boundary within APM8639x supports tamper detection and tamper response in the event of the need for protecting critical security parameters.
The unique features of the APM8639x enable AppliedMicro’s domain protection to run two or more subsystems simultaneously and independently without performance degradation, bandwidth contention, or security compromises.
