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
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,, 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.
