TI and 6WIND Partner on Packet Processing Software

6WIND announced support within the 6WINDGate software solution for TI's new scalable 28-nm multicore processors based on its recently announced KeyStone II multicore architecture.


6WINDGate includes a full set of control plane modules, a high performance networking stack and a wide range of data plane protocols that have been specifically optimized for TI's KeyStone II-based multicore processors. 6WINDGate said its fast path-based architecture enables OEMs to quickly migrate existing application software to TI's KeyStone II architecture, allowing the use of TI's on-chip network coprocessors, as well as reducing time to market and schedule risk.


"We're constantly looking for ways to push the envelope with our KeyStone II multicore processors," said Ramesh Kumar, business manager, multicore processors, TI. "No multicore architecture matches the performance, flexibility and power efficiency of KeyStone II and our collaboration with 6WIND gives our customers the software support they need to quickly and easily develop high performance applications."


TI's scalable KeyStone II architecture includes support for both TMS320C66x digital signal processors (DSP) generation cores and multiple cache coherent quad ARM Cortex™-A15 clusters, for a mixture of up to 32 DSP and RISC cores. The multicore architecture includes capacity expansion for SoC structural elements such as TeraNet, Multicore Navigator and Multicore Shared Memory Controller (MSMC). This expansion allows developers to fully utilize the capability of all processing elements, including ARM RISC cores, DSP cores and enhanced AccelerationPacs. RISC processing within KeyStone II has been significantly upgraded with the addition of quad ARM Cortex -A15 clusters, providing ultra-high performance at half the power consumption of traditional RISC cores.
