The AHA3642 integrated circuit (IC) performs compression/decompression at 20 Gbps throughput. This low-cost solution meets the growing needs of the network and storage markets. Vendors who have traditionally implemented open source GZIP or zlib compression software now can free up CPU resources while achieving optimal compression ratio and throughput performance. In addition, those using LZS can support this legacy algorithm while having the higher compression ratios of GZIP and zlib available in their systems.
  • Supports open standard algorithms GZIP and zlib
  • Supports LZS algorithm
  • Full duplex operation
  • PCIe 2.0 x8 interface
  • High compression ratio
  • Minimal expansion of uncompressible data
  • Supports streaming of large files or blocks
  • Supports compression of intermixed blocks from different files
  • Low power
