  abstract= "As the Internet evolves, the rapidly increasing demand for
     bandwidth is matched by a greater need for more intelligence
     with which to manage and meter the flow of that data to
     sustain economic growth. Conventional processing
     architectures and hardwired point solutions are not suited
     to these conflicting demands; there is an emerging need for
     a new approach for this data flow processing problem. This
     paper presents ClearSpeed's integrated Network Processor
     design platform that embodies many different levels of
     parallel processing. Designed to balance the bandwidth needs
     with programmability we introduce the MTAP architecture. An
     area and power efficient, fine-grained, scalable,
     multi-threaded parallel processor, designed with a
     'bandwidth-centric' architecture and programmed in C. Based
     on the ClearConnectâ„¢ bus, an SoC communication
     architecture with VCI compliant interfaces, a high-bandwidth
     system architecture including a number of hardware
     accelerator units is also described. An example 40Gbit/s
     programmable and scalable classifier/forwarder is presented,
     embodying the concepts of the platform. To complete the
     picture, a comprehensive suite of software and hardware
     development tools is described."
