Linley Tech 6th Annual Processor Conference Focuses on Networking for Enterprise, Service Providers, and Cloud-Computing Data Centers
Networking and Computing Expert Andy Bechtolsheim to Keynote
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/24/12 -- The 6th Annual Linley Tech Processor Conference kicks off next month with a focus on the rapidly changing market dynamics affecting networking in the enterprise, carrier, and cloud-computing markets, according to The Linley Group, the industry's leading source for independent technology analysis of semiconductors for networking, communications, mobile, and wireless applications. Andy Bechtolsheim, inventor, industry guru, and current chairman of Arista Networks, will deliver a keynote on October 11, providing his views on how continued advances in semiconductor processing will drive the evolution of network switch chips and processors.
"Software-defined networking, the rearchitecting of systems to support security and other services at 100Gbps and faster, and the evolution of cloud computing is disrupting the design of processors for communications, as well as the associated memory and software technologies. We see the enterprise and cloud markets driving some of the most significant changes and innovations in processor design," said Joseph Byrne, Linley Group senior analyst and conference chairperson. "As the leading analyst firm focused on semiconductors for embedded processing, communications, mobile and wireless, we understand the need for a deeper understanding of the market and technology changes taking place, and are committed to providing not only the most updated technical information, but also direct access to the industry leaders initiating these changes. This year's conference is our largest ever, with several companies making new product announcements or sharing technical details for the first time."
The two-day conference will take place October 10-11, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in San Jose, Calif., and features 25 technical presentations, as well as panel discussions, sponsor exhibits, and networking lunches. Topics to be covered include trends in multicore-processor design and programming, "manycore" processors (those with 36 or more CPUs) to address high-speed networking, licensable CPUs, network and platform security, and high-performance memories for networking.
Companies making announcements or providing new technology details include: EZchip will provide the first public details of its newly announced NPS network processor, the first NPU to process layers 2-7 and be both C-programmable and Linux-compatible; GSI Technology will announce its newest high-performance networking memory; LSI will provide a first look at its new ARM-based Axxia architecture; and MoSys will unveil the next device in its series of second-generation Bandwidth Engine(R) family of ICs.
Presenting, panelist, and exhibiting companies include Cavium, AppliedMicro, Freescale, LSI, Netronome, MoSys, AuthenTec, EZchip, Xilinx, Tensilica, Tilera, MIPS, GSI Technology, Target, Broadcom, Altera, ARM, Intel, Micron, Imagination Tech, Synopsys, Ethernet Alliance, HyperTransport Consortium, Power.org, and the EEMBC.
Attendees will have an opportunity to visit vendor exhibits and network with industry leaders during the cocktail reception on Wednesday, October 10 at 5 p.m.
