The Intel. IXDP425 Network Processor Development Platform speeds time-to-market by eliminating the need for developers to start their design efforts "from scratch" for each new product based on the Intel IXP425 network processor family. The Intel IXP425 network processor family combines the processing capability of an Intel. XScale core with the flexibility and scalability of three Network Processor Engines (NPEs). This highly integrated network processor includes on-chip integration of voice and data functions, along with support for multiple WAN and LAN technologies.Together with the VxWorks Embedded Operating System and Tornado Tools, the Intel IXDP425 Network Processor Development Platform forms the foundation for a total development environment. This development platform can be used to prototype a wide variety of applications such as:High-end residential gateways, Small to medium enterprise (SME) routers, switches & security devices, Networked printers, Mini-DSLAMs (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexers), xDSL line cards, Wireless access points, and Industrial control systems.
