Myth-Busting Latency Numbers for TCP Offload Engines

When you shop around for a TCP IP-Core for TCP offload engines, don’t you ask yourself: What does that really mean when you see numbers like this?

This Technical Brief sheds light on TCP/IP processing in an FPGA, and in particular busts some myths about latency numbers. Here, we will describe proper ways of measuring latency numbers, and why latency numbers do matter for TCP offload engines when implementing TCP/IP in FPGAs. 

Based on MLE’s past projects experience, it all comes down to technical and economical feasibility determined by FPGA resource costs!
