NetLogic Microsystems Delivers World's First 500 MHz Knowledge-Based Processor.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- NetLogic Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:NETL), the leader in the design and development of knowledge-based processors, today announced the availability of its NL6000XS family of knowledge-based processors that provides the industry's first and highest performance 500 Megahertz (MHz) device for comprehensive network-aware packet classification.

The market-leading performance and rich feature-set of the NL6000XS family of knowledge-based processors deliver the next level of performance required for customers to develop advanced Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), mobile multimedia, peer-to-peer networking and Internet Protocol version6 (IPv6) systems.

The NL6000XS significantly extends the performance and functionality of NetLogic Microsystems' NL6000 product family to enable advanced 40 Gigabit networking systems. By employing an advanced superscalar with deep pipelining architecture, the device provides superior parallel processing capabilities and offers leading-edge features such as logical table assignments, single-cycle key modification and re-issue, and advanced low-power modes, which deliver up to 75% lower power than competing solutions, allowing for use of 500MHz parts in multi-chip, content heavy applications such as triple-play routing.

"By leveraging our market and technology leadership in knowledge-based processors as well as advances in semiconductor technology from our manufacturing partners, we are excited to deliver to our customers the highest performance knowledge-based processor in the industry," said Dimitrios Dimitrelis, vice president of engineering. "The architecture designed for the NL6000 family of products has demonstrated tremendous scalability, and is a testament to the capabilities of our designers."

The progression to multiple 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, Internet Protocol Version 6 and advanced triple-play features to support VoIP, IPTV and other video applications, is driving the industry to ever-increasing performance levels of knowledge-based processors. As evidence of this drive for performance, five of the industry's leading manufacturers are designing with the NL6000XS. By maintaining instruction set and footprint compatibility, NetLogic Microsystems is making it easier and faster for its customers to upgrade to this new performance capability.


The NL6000XS family of knowledge-based processors is available now for samples. For additional information, please contact
