The single-chip control/data-plane processor offers many advantages over traditional discrete solutions. Integration improves performance, reduces both chip cost and system cost, and reduces power dissipation, a key limiter in many system designs. Furthermore, an off-the-shelf SCDP simplifies the system-design task and provides a single support contact. SCDP designs are widely deployed today in consumer, SMB, and access equipment. Although most consumer networking equipment today uses simple system-on-a-chip processors, the shift to next-generation broadband technologies is driving a transition to true SCDP devices in the consumer and SOHO markets. In SMB and access equipment, SCDP chips will evolve to support greater data rates and additional functions.
