Sierra 732

Quad port smart NIC with encryption acceleration
  • 10G SFP+ and RJ45
  • Freescale T4240

Sierra 732 is a quad port, 10G SFP+ smart NIC based on Freescale’s T4240 flexible technology. It comes in a PCI-e, Gen 2.0 form factor. This sophisticated NIC enables main CPU offload for essential network packet processing. The system comes with a comprehensive Linux development environment.

Sierra 732 incorporates hardware and software building blocks for developing intelligent networking platforms that support the growing demand for TCP offload, packet classification, Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), security: SSL offload, and IPSec offload, time stamping, protocol classification, and virtualization.

  • Freescale T4240, 12 core, 24 threads CPU based on PPC architecture
  • Up to 12GB of DDR3 memory
  • Network interfaces quad 10Gb SFP+ (SR, LR)
  • Supports NOR and NAND flash, SATA and SD memory
  • RJ45 management and console ports
  • Offload C293 encryption acceleration
  • Linux BSP/SDK + PCI-e driver support
  • Provided with Linux SDK and drivers
  • Targeting CPU offload for:
    ­ ­ - Packet classification and load balancing
    ­ - Protocol classification
    ­ - TCP/IP offload and termination
    ­ - SSL offload and termination
    ­ - Time stamping
    ­ - Packet slicing
    ­ - IO virtualization
