Netronome develops programmable semiconductor products for intelligent flow processing in network and communications devices. The company's products include network flow processors (NFPs) and acceleration cards that scale to 100 Gbps, design and development tools, and a range of professional services. The NFP family of processors and acceleration cards find use in carrier-grade and enterprise-class communications products that require deep packet inspection, flow analysis, content processing, virtualization and security. They combine high-performance network, content, and security processing with general-purpose processors, such as Intel's IA, through I/O virtualization. The NFP-3240 is backward-compatible with the Intel IXP28XX.
