Michela Becchi, an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering with joint appointments in Computer Science and the Informatics Institute of the University of Missouri, has focused her efforts on using the AP to address the challenges involved with implementing high-speed regular expression matching engines. "Micron's Automata Processor combines the advantages of NFA-based designs and memory-based solutions to achieve regular expression matching," said Becchi. "Specifically, it efficiently supports large sets of complex regular expressions, while providing worst-case processing guarantees and support for multiple input streams. In addition, it comes with a user-friendly programming tool-chain that can be easily integrated with existing tools for regular expression processing." Additionally, Micron and the University of Virginia today announced an agreement to establish the Center for Automata Computing at the University of Virginia.
Graphic design and simulation tools, along with a software development kit (SDK), to enable developers to design, compile, test, and deploy their own applications using the AP will be available in 2014.
