The latest TCAM builds on production-successful IP targeting switch/router applications. The new compiler features 1GHz performance with reasonable power consumption and is design- friendly for a multitude of high speed network products. It is a key piece of IP for networking, AI and SCM (Storage Class Memory) applications.

GUC's TCAM compiler supports a 8 ~ 512 word depth and a 16 ~ 160 Bit Width. The TCAM instance provides high speed, one cycle operation up to 1GHz (LVT) and 1.35GHz (uLVT) for the 16nm FFC compiler.

The 7nm FF TCAM instance is expected to operate at up to 1.8GHz (uLVT) and 1.5GHz (LVT). Both 16FFC and 07FF TCAM compilers offer valid bit per entry and match output for each entry data. They feature a data mask for bit write and search-key, block search enable and LVT (default) or uLVT (optional) peripheral Vt options.

"A robust TCAM IP portfolio is central to our networking ASIC capabilities. Customers tell us that a high performance TCAM IP is key to their design and to their selection of a preferred ASIC partner," explains Ken Chen, president of GUC.
