Mobile Intel® IXDPG425 Network Gateway Reference Platform

A voice and wireless gateway reference design

The Intel® IXDPG425 Network Gateway Reference Platform provides an easy to use Intel® IXP425 Network Processor-based reference platform with complete schematics, bill of materials (BOM), and printed circuit board (PCB) design source files (contact your local Intel Representative) to provide a significant improvement in time to market for developers of leading edge gateway products.

The IXP42X product line of network processors combines the processing capability of an Intel XScale® processor with the flexibility and scalability of network processor engines (NPEs). These highly integrated processors enable on-chip integration of voice and data functions, support multiple WAN and LAN technologies, offer a choice of operating systems, and are supported by a broad range of Intel XScale® processor development tools.

The Intel IXDPG425 Network Gateway Reference Platform demonstrates the scalability of the Intel® IXP425 Network Processor as a solution for a wide range of applications, including wireless residential gateways with network attached storage and print server capability, security solutions providing VPN termination, and complete voice over IP solutions for the small office.
