The network coprocessor (NETCP) is a hardware accelerator that processes data packets with a main focus on processing Ethernet packets. NETCP has two gigabit Ethernet (GbE) modules to send and receive packets from an IEEE 802.3 compliant network, a packet accelerator (PA) to perform packet classification operations such as header matching, and packet modification operations such as checksum generation, A and a security accelerator (SA) to encrypt and decrypt data packets.
