"Ubicom specializes in Linux-ready multithreaded networking and media processors for the home and small business (SMB) markets. In March, it released a networked audio player reference design using the StreamEngine IP7500 variant of its IP7000 platform (see block diagram below). Whereas the IP7500 was optimized for lossless audio transmission and playback, the IP7100 version incorporated in the IP7100 Router Gateway focuses on networking throughput. The router platform is designed for OEMs and ODMs who want to rapidly develop router products for consumer, SOHO, and SMB markets, says the company.

"The IP7000 family of networking and multimedia processors offers a 12-way multithreaded architecture that can be clocked at up to 600MHz. The 14 x 14mm chip provides two to three times the performance at the same frequency compared with a traditional single-threaded RISC processor, claims Ubicom"
