The Intel(R) IXDP46x Network Processor Development Platform speedstime-to-market by eliminating the need for developers to start their design efforts "from scratch"for each new product based on the Intel (R) IXP46x network processor family. The Intel(R)IXP46x networkprocessor family combines the processing capability of an Intel XScale(R) core with the flexibilityand scalability of three Network Processor Engines (NPEs). This highly integrated network processorincludes on-chip integration of voice and data functions, along with support for multiple WAN andLAN technologies. Together with the VxWorks Embedded Operating System and Tornado Tools, the IntelIXDP46x Network Processor Development Platform forms the foundation for a total developmentenvironment. This development platform can be used to prototype a wide variety of applications suchas: High-end residential gateways, Small to medium enterprise (SME) routers, switches & securitydevices, Networked printers, Mini-DSLAMs (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexers), xDSL linecards, Wireless access points, and Industrial control systems.
