Dev Framework

100G Ethernet packet processing Reference Design

This reference design is a 100G Ethernet architecture for look-up table based packet processing.

It has been specially designed for Anti-DDoS, IP filtering and bandwidth allocation applications.

When data rate is slow as shown above -> we notice a high inter-packet gap.

Data rate then increases as the inter-packet gap is reduced.

When data rate is maximum as shown above, the inter-packet gap is very low
