network processor

(redirected from Net processor)

network processor

A programmable CPU chip optimized for networking and communications functions. The network processor is programmed to perform the required packet processing and offers vendors an alternative for building routers, switches and access devices rather than designing a custom chip (see ASIC). MMC Networks coined the term in 1997.
