  • Nt1310 Unit 3 CPU Architecture Case Study

    The combined output is 3.2 gigabits per second and it can forward up to 40 Megabits per second for all packet dimensions. It uses a consolidated route lookup engine, common memory and the Packet Forwarding Engine is applied in application explicit integrated circuits. Usage of ASICs encourages effectual measure of data packets through the system. Packets run over the Packet Forwarding Engine in sequence. First packets reach at a receiving PIC interface. Then the PIC permits the packets to flow…
