The Algo-Logic Systems' TCP Endpoint implements a full TCP functionality in FPGA hardware which is capable of opening, maintaining, and closing TCP Connections. It has an ultra low latency of 76nanoseconds. The network-tested Algo-Logic TCP Endpoint delivers ultra-high performance and highest TCP bandwidth. It supports full duplex rates of 20 Gbps scalable to 140 Gbps by using multiple ports within a single FPGA. It runs at the full Ethernet clock speed of 156.25 MHz enabling the core to run synchronously with the MAC and application specific processing logic. The implementation is widely deployed on FPGA platforms including Terasic DE5Net, Nallatech P385, Solarflare AOE, and other platforms.


    Device Utilization and Performance

    For 32 Sessions and 128KB retransmission buffer memory, device utilization on Stratix V A7 is: 1. Total registers: 7856 2. Logic utilization: 6580 ALMs (2.81%) 3. Block memory bits: 4286816 (8.17%)
