Network Processors     
NPS Processors
A game changing network processor that merges NPU performance with CPU flexibility and ease of programmability. The NPS-400 C-programmable packet processor at ultra-high 400-Gigabit throughput, supports all 7-layers with integrated traffic management to enable the next wave of high-performance intelligent carrier routers, data-center network equipment, and accelerates virtualized functions in emerging SDN and NFV networks.
  NP Processors
Highly-flexible network processors with integrated traffic management targeting Carrier Ethernet Switches and Routers (CESR) and other platforms that require high performance, flexible packet processing and fine-grained traffic management. EZchip’s NP products range in performance from the 200-Gigabit NP-5 to the 10-Gigabit NPA, and offer a choice of integrated ports for 1, 10, 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet and Interlaken.
Multicore Processors    
TILE-Gx Processors
The TILE-Gx™ processor family is optimized for networking, video, and cloud applications. This complete “system-on-a-chip” delivers the highest performance per watt per square inch. The family includes processors with 9, 16, 36, or 72 identical processor cores (tiles) interconnected with EZchip's iMesh™ on-chip network for maximum linear performance scaling. Each core consists of a full-featured 64-bit processor core with a standard Linux and C/C++ software environment, L1 and L2 cache and the non-blocking iMesh.
  TILE-Mx Processors
EZchip’s next generation multicore processor family is currently under development. The TILE-Mx processor with its high core-count and integrated hardware acceleration engines is set to deliver the world’s highest performance data-plane processing coupled with control-plane and complete application processing. With integrated state-of-the-art networking interfaces and massive memory bandwidth, the TILE-Mx processor is designed to deliver wire-speed processing for complex workloads in virtualized environments, while offering the ease of a C/C++ programming environment on top of standard Linux.
EZchip’s processors support C/C++ programming, Linux distribution and standard development tools to enable programmers to utilize a familiar environment and to design, implement and verify their control-plane and data-plane applications. A comprehensive library of source-code networking applications that can be embedded into the customer’s own application software is provided to expedite time-to-market and ensure optimized and high-performance designs. In addition, an ecosystem of third party pre-integrated software verified with EZchip’s processors for a variety of network applications is available.
Intelligent Network Adapters    
TILEncore-Gx Family
