  Monte Gold Platform  
Intel® IXP435 network processor
4 PCI Interfaces (2 PCI slot and 2 miniPCI)
5 ports WLAN + LAN and 3 ports VoIP
Easy software and platform migration from
Intel® IXP42X, IXP45X, and IXP46X based

Monte Gold is a full-featured reference platform based on Intel® IXP435 network processor with up to 667MHz core frequency that provides
ample performance headroom for next-generation network applications. It also comes with 4 PCI interfaces (2 PCI slots and 2 miniPCI slots).
These allow further extension of applications to have, for example: Gigabit network with Gigabit PCI interface card or Wireless network with
IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n miniPCI type III interface card. Monte Gold provides sufficient network ports and VoIP ports for various development

In addition to Monte Gold, the IXP435 network processor is positioned to enable both cost sensitive Gateways and Converged Access
Platforms (CAP). It can be applied in many occasions such as wireless residential gateways with network attached storage and print server
capability, security solutions providing VPN terminal, and complete VoIP solutions for SOHO.

The Monte Gold reference platform allows developers to adopt and customize platform design easily, and quickly develop a desired solution,
which evidently reducing time-to-market. Moreover, this platform can help ODM and OEM to have more efficient ways to deliver feature-rich
solutions and create enhanced embedded applications to meet their needs.

With our leading development experience of IXP43X network platforms, Flexcomm can provide strong technical support on this product and to
fulfill customers' requirements.
