52 Pin FN (S-PQCC-J52) Package
The TI380FPA is a frame processing accelerator. This device is used to increase the rate of frame processing by the network communications processor.
The TI380FPA is responsible for the following:
-Management of all commprocessor protocol handler (PH) operations. The FPA manages all receive- and transmit-frame queues.
-Management of adapter buffers. The FPA manages all adapter memory buffers, allocating them to the appropriate queues as required.
-Management of host direct memory access (DMA) by way of the commprocessor system interface (SIF) DMA controller.
-Management of frame transfers to the host. The FPA manages queues of frames to and from the host, manages rx/tx list information, and coordinates the two.
-Gathering adapter and network statistics in dedicated hardware counters.
