Default AMD Introduces the AMD Alchemy DBAu1550 Development Board

Accelerating Design of Network Access Devices

Development Board Helps Speed Product Design and Reduce Time to Market for Customers Building Secure Gateways and Wireless Access Points

AUSTIN, Texas, May 26, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Advanced Micro Devices, (AMD) (AMD) today announced the AMD Alchemy(TM) DBAu1550(TM) security network processor development board, designed for network access devices. Using the new board, developers can accelerate the design and production of next-generation wired and wireless devices that leverage the security features in the high-performance, low-power AMD Alchemy Au1550(TM) processor, which operates at only a half a watt. Used by OEMs, the development board will aid in speeding product design and decreasing time-to-market for devices such as gateways and network attached storage (NAS) units, wireless access points and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) environments.

"Using the DBAu1550 kit, developers have a feature rich board for the development of integrated networking and security functionality on high-performance, low-power secure hardware," said Erik Salo, Director of Marketing for AMD's Personal Connectivity Solutions Group. "The DBAu1550 delivers the foundation needed to enable designers to rapidly design and develop the next generation of secure wired and wireless networking devices."

The AMD Alchemy DBAu1550 development kit includes the Au1550 security network processor featuring an integrated security engine that implements the entire VPN packet protocol in hardware. Integrating this feature enables accelerated IPsec packet-processing in hardware, providing designers the ability to create a product based on the Au1550 processor that is designed to improve security performance. With the DBAu1550 development kit, customers have the ability to configure peripherals, operating system features, file systems, memory types and the debug environment.

The AMD Alchemy DBAu1550 development board is based on the AMD Au1550 security network processor, the newest product in the AMD Alchemy Solutions product line, which features an integrated security engine and supports both IPsec and SSL types of VPN protocols and includes a True Random Number Generator (RNG). Additionally, the Au1550 processor is capable of sustaining unlimited VPN tunnels simultaneously. These features are made possible with intellectual property technology licensed from SafeNet, allowing AMD to deliver proven security capabilities for networking devices. These security features address the needs of Small Office/Home Office and enterprise customers designing networked environments that need a flexible security platform and demand a high-performance, low-power processor at a lower system cost.

Key features of the AMD Alchemy Au1550 security network processor include:

Security Engine

-- Supports both IPsec and SSL VPN standards

-- Accelerates entire VPN packet processing task in hardware

-- Implements DES, 3DES, AES, ARC-4, SHA-1, MD5

-- Provides True Random Number Generation

DDR or SDR Memory Controller

-- Supports DDR and SDRAM, up to DDR400

-- Greater flexibility in speed vs. bandwidth tradeoffs

Descriptor-based DMA (DDMA)

-- Designed for linked list of DMA operations

-- 16 channels

Static Controller

-- Supports NOR and NAND Flash

-- PCMCIA and Compact Flash support

Operating system support

-- Windows(R) CE.NET

-- Linux

-- VxWorks

Low-power consumption

-- Supports Battery and Power-Over-Ethernet applications

Using SafeNet's CGX Mobile Library, the Au1550 processor customers can design security solutions with multiple price-performance options, using the same software application-programming interface (API).
