Hardware Components

MPC hardware components especially designed for the project include the RCube router, the PCIDDC PCI interface chip, the FastHSL board and the SmartHSL board. Slides about the whole project are available in online HTML form.




NOE is an interface chip dedicated to high performance network control. It is 64 bit 66 MHz PCI initiator and target agent full PCI 2.1 compliant. This chip has 2 HSL (1 Gbit/s full duplex) port. The protocol is implemented by firmware and data flow is performed by specific hardware to minimize latency and maximize bandwidth. More informations about NOE here. The full specification of NOE is available in postscript form (243kb)


FastHSL is a board including both a RCube and a PCIDDC chip.
SmartHSL is a board containing both a RCube and a DSP (Motorola-56301).
