Low-power processor designer ARM has unveiled networking technology designs for use by chipmakers and system designers.
The company said that its CoreLink intellectual property package will allow hardware vendors to access designs for a networking platform which can be integrated into system-on-chip (SoC) hardware for high-speed networking.
ARM, which designs and licenses its intellectual property to third-party vendors, said that the CoreLink system would bring bring bandwidth speeds of as high one Tbit/s to the low-power SoC space in the coming years.
The company hopes that the design, when paired with ARM's DMC-520 memory controller design, will form the basis of a high-performance enterprise server which maintains the efficiency advantages of low-powered designs.
"As the amount of data used increases exponentially over the next 10 to 15 years, the CoreLink CCN-504 and DMC-520 will play an important role by providing high-performance system IP solutions for many-core applications," said ARM processor division deputy general manager Tom Cronk.
"This ensures quality of service and coherent operation across the system, and enables SoC designers to efficiently prioritise and handle wide data flows with optimum latency."
The new intellectual property offerings come as ARM seeks to move beyond its traditional mobile and embedded system markets and into the server market. The company's low-powered chips have piqued the interest of web application vendors and cloud computing providers who require specialised and massively scalable server architectures to support their products.
The company will, however, see stiff competition from Intel, who has similarly grand designs for its Atom low-powered processor family. Earlier this year Intel executives predicted that Atom would distance itself from competitors with superior design and manufacturing processes.
