NPU Development Services

Comm Logic Design, Inc. is able to provide a variety of Intel IXP2xxx development services.  Following our experience delivering IXP1200 solutions for a number of clients, we have been working with partners developing IXP2xxx microcode and Xscale control plane software.

We have developed applications on several off-the-shelf network processor platforms including the Intel IXDP2400, Intel IXDP2800,Adlink CPCI-6240, Radisys ENP-2611,  and Sensory Networks Nodal Core I Series as well as our client's proprietary systems.

We provide both microcode and software development on these platforms utilizing either the WindRiver VxWorks, or a Linux embedded operating system.

Our IXP2xxx Xscale experience includes Linux kernel and driver development work in addition to applications development.

We have developed microcode in areas including:


switching and routing


access control lists (ACL)




intrusion detection and prevention


email filtering

As an example of our work, Comm Logic Design has developed an implementation of the Snort Network Intrusion Detection System's (NIDS) detection engine on the IXP2400.  For more information on our Snort implementation press the "Read More" button below.

Comm Logic Design realizes that a successful network processor based design requires careful analysis of the relationship between the network processor itself, its peripheral's, and the microcode and firmware running on it in order to meet or exceed the design objectives, particularly in the area of performance targets.

We strongly encourage our clients to model their designs in simulation before committing the design to hardware.  We understand the methods and have the tools required to build a full simulation of your design to ensure that your product meets its design criteria when it is first committed to hardware.
