  • Patent number: 7941699
    Abstract: Techniques that determine a strict subset of multiple processor cores from a set of multiple functional processor cores integrated within a single integrated circuit package. The determined strict subset of multiple processor cores differs from a previously determined strict subset of multiple processor cores from the set of multiple functional processor cores used to initiate an immediately previous core booting. In response to a processor reset, booting of the strict subset of multiple processor cores is initiated. Also, support for selecting multiple modes of operations, either supporting fault tolerance or extended life.

  • Patent number: 7631133
    Abstract: An apparatus, method, computer program product, integrated circuit and system that include a backplane that provides direct and indirect connections among a plurality of slots in communication with the backplane. The backplane is also complies with a telecommunication architecture specification. The slots include at least a source slot, an intermediate slot and a destination slot. The intermediate slot may receive a first data set from the source slot via the backplane. The intermediate slot sends the first data set to the destination slot via the backplane.

  • Patent number: 7539184
    Abstract: A reconfigurable interconnect/switch for selectably coupling network devices, media, and switch fabric. The reconfigurable interconnect/switch enables network devices, such as network processor units (NPUs) to selectively communicate with other NPUs, media (via a media interface), and switch fabric (via a switch fabric interface), thus providing flexibility in the use of network line cards and the like. Embodiments of the switching/routing scheme may be employed to support network devices having separate media and/or switch fabric interfaces, as well as network devices having selectable media switch fabric (MSF) interfaces that share signal lines.

  • Patent number: 7487280
    Abstract: Information is obtained from a module received in a slot in a chassis. The information includes a number of ports in one or more module connectors which route at least one communication channel associated with a communication interfaces on the module. A determination is made as to the number of ports the slot has a capability to route the at least one communication channel to one or more backplanes in the chassis and to another module received in another slot in the chassis. A given number of ports in the one or more module connectors are enabled to forward data from the communication interface on the module and through the at least one communication channel to the other module based on the determination.

  • Patent number: 7458815
    Abstract: A chassis includes a plurality of slots to receive modules. The chassis further includes a first backplane to couple to modules that are received in the plurality of slots. The modules are to couple to the first backplane via a first communication interface on each module. The chassis also includes a second backplane to couple to at least a subset of the modules via a second communication interface on each of the subset of modules. One of the backplanes may be located in an upper or lower air plenum and used to interconnect modules slid along the slots from opposite directions. Some of the module connectors may be retractable to enable the modules to move into the chassis. The interface may be electrical, optical inductive or capacitive.
