Internet Processor I ASIC

Juniper "IP Processor" is a commercial name for the key (packet L3 lookup) ASIC for the original Juniper M40 product. Internally known as "C-chip", this ASIC was a part of 3-piece ABC chipset constellation that proved hardware-based packet forwarding possible and led to initial commercial success of Juniper Networks.

The Internet Processor I was only produced for the M40 and M20 platforms, and was followed with upgrades Switch Boards for both, featuring the Internet Processor II.

Juniper also sparingly uses "IP Processor" tag to refer to later generations of packet processor engines developed in-house.
