  • Patent number: 6052738
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for controlling access to a shared memory in a network system is described. The apparatus includes at least one fast port interface circuit, each comprising a fast input port interface configured to sequentially receive data, address, and command information from a network client at a first data rate in segments of a first width. Each fast input port interface comprises a fast interface register configured to temporarily store the data and address information. Each fast input port interface further comprises a command decode circuit configured to receive the command information and, in response, sequentially store the segments of data and address information in the fast interface register until the fast interface register is full, the fast interface register further configured to be read out in parallel to the shared memory.
