In this paper, a network processor for low latency, high
bandwidth communication, called Martini, is introduced.
Martini can be used as a network interface card (NIC)
controller LSI for PCI-based and DIMM slot-based NICs.
Martini is equipped with up to a 10Gbit/s high speed link
interface. Martini is a 0.14µm CMOS embedded array.
A total of 538kbyte of high speed embedded memory and
1490k basic cells are provided on the chip.
