Router platform runs OpenWRT Linux

Ubicom is shipping a OpenWRT Linux-based router platform and reference design using the company’s new Ubicom IP7100 Router Gateway Evaluation board. The Ubicom board incorporates its StreamEngine IP7100 series network RISC processor, and includes a gigabit WAN port and four gigabit LAN ports, says the company.

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.
