The NetFPGA is an open, multipurpose platform that provides a complete development tool chain for researchers and students to implement their ideas easily and build prototypes of high-speed, hardware-accelerated data processing systems. The NetFPGA card includes all of the logic resources, memory, and Gigabit Ethernet & SATA interfaces necessary to build a complete switch, router, and/or network security device. The NetFPGA is a low-cost reconfigurable hardware platform optimized for high-speed networking. Because the entire data path is implemented in hardware, the system can support back-to-back packets at full Gigabit line rates and has a processing latency measured in only a few clock cycles.

John W. Lockwood is a Consulting Associate Professor at Stanford University. He leads the NetFPGA alpha and beta release programs at Stanford University. Lockwood’s research interests include reconfigurable hardware, Internet security, and content processing technologies. Dr. Lockwood earned his MS, BS, and Ph.D degrees from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois. Prior to joining Stanford, Lockwood was a tenured associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Washington University in Saint Louis. At Washington University in St. Louis, Lockwood led the Reconfigurable Network Group to develop the Field programmable Port Extender to enable rapid prototype of extensible network modules in Field Programmable Gate Array technology.
