3Com ASIC that streamlines cell-based switching by converting Ethernet packets to ATM-sized cells and switching them at over 780,000 cells per second. The ZipChip, used in the 720x interface cards for the CELLplex(TM) 7000 and the LinkSwitch 2700 Ethernet/ATM switches, combines with onboard RISC processors to boost aggregate bandwidth.
