Roke Manor Research Network processor Cores

Roke Manor Resarch a UK company have developed a network processor called ProPars, (header processing) core, and a Very-high-speed Address Look Up Engine (VALUE).
ProPars Network Processor
The ProPars network processor is a micro-programmable core that supports packet forwarding functions for the next generation of routers, including making forwarding decisions, performing header manipulation and packet scheduling. It consists of a number of header processing engines (HPEs). The initial core developed for a Xilinx Virtex FPGA consisted of 4 HPEs. However, the architecture is such that it is scalable and can be extended to form a network processor with 64 HPEs. This would be capable of processing over 40 million packets per second.
