Part Number: RTL8196C
Function: IEEE 802.11n AP/ROUTER NETWORK PROCESSOR WITH EEE
Package: PQFP 128 Pin type
Manufacturer: Realtek Semiconductor
The RTL8196C is an integrated System-on-a-Chip (SoC) Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) that implements a basic L2 5-port Ethernet switch and a high performance CPU.
The embedded RISC CPU is an RLX4181, and the clock rate can be up to 400MHz. To improve computational performance, a 16-Kbyte I-Cache, 8-Kbyte D-Cache, 16-K I-MEM, and 8-Kbyte D-MEM are provided. A standard 5-signal P1149.1 compliant EJTAG test interface is supported for CPU testing and software development.
1. CPU Interface (NIC)
(1) Supports BSD mbuf-like packet structure with adjustable cluster size (128-byte to
2Kbyte) to provide optimum memory utilization
(2) Provides the ‘To-CPU reason’ in the packet header to facilitate packet processing
(3) The NIC DMA supports multipledescriptor-ring architecture for QoS applications (supports 6 RX descriptor rings and 2 TX descriptor rings)
