Titan IC licenses processor to Silicom for advanced FPGA SmartNIC platforms

Titan IC has announced it has licensed its 40Gb/s Helios RXPF Regular Expression Processor to Silicom Ltd to further enhance their new FPGA SmartNIC platform, the company said.

In today´s market there is a clear need for hardware acceleration to process the increasing volumes of data at speed and FPGA technology is a key player in this space. Silicom, industry leaders in connectivity solutions, have developed a portfolio of easy-to-use FPGA hardware, software and IP modules to reduce time-to-market for their customers.

Titan IC´s Regular expression processing (RXP) technology has been chosen as Silicom´s pattern and string matching solution which will be rolled out on multiple FPGA platforms.

The Helios RegEx processor is proficient in analysing data at full network throughput rates reaching 100 Gb/s in FPGA technology and can scan up to 1 million complex regular expressions in parallel.

Silicom Ltd. is an industry-leading provider of high-performance networking and data infrastructure solutions. Designed primarily to improve performance and efficiency in Cloud and Data Center environments, Silicom´s solutions increase throughput, decrease latency and boost the performance of servers and networking appliances, the infrastructure backbone that enables advanced Cloud architectures and technologies like NFV, SD-WAN and Cyber Security.

The company´s innovative solutions for high-density networking, high-speed fabric switching, offloading and acceleration, which utilize a range of cutting-edge silicon technologies as well as FPGA-based solutions, are ideal for scaling-up and scaling-out cloud infrastructures.

Headquartered in Belfast Northern Ireland, Titan IC is a spin out company from the Centre for Secure Information Technology (CSIT) at Queens University Belfast, Northern Ireland.
