100% Packet Capture

At the core of all ANIC adapters is the FPGA based Advanced Packet Processor (APP) which features a high performance pipe-lined packet processing engine, a high performance DDR3 memory and PCIe DMA interface.

Packet Slicing

The APP features a flexible approach for packet header slicing in applications that only need to process and forward a selected offset into the Ethernet Frame without need to process and forward packet payload data.

Packet Merging

In applications where a single receive port is connected to an aggregation Tap, Mirror or SPAN port of a Switch, packets are time stamped in order of arrival, processed by the APP and forwarded to the Host CPU.

Hash Based Flow Classification

The APP hash-based classifier generates a 24 bit hash key using the Layer 3/4  five-tuple (IP source address, UDP/TCP source port, IP destination address, UDP/TCP destination port, protocol id).
