Caviums Debuts OCTEON III MIPS64 Multicore Processors

Cavium introduced two new families of 28nm dual and quad core OCTEON III MIPS64 multicore processors designed for a broad range of applications, including Wired and Wireless Gateways, 802.11ac access points, Switches, Routers, UTM/Security Appliances, Network Attached Storage, etc.

The new processors include up to 4 MIPS64 cores with full hardware virtualization, Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), Packet processing, Security and QOS capabilities in a highly integrated System on a Chip.

Cavium’s new OCTEON III single, dual and quad-core SoCs are available in a small foot print plastic LBGA package and are targeted for low power and low cost applications. The new designs support full hardware virtualization that allows applications to be 'firewalled' from each other, legacy and newer operating systems to run concurrently and also enables live in-service upgrades. The broad range of connectivity options includes GbE, 10GbE XAUI, SATA 3.0, USB 3.0 and PCIe controllers.

Cavium has also included sophisticated power management techniques including "Power Optimizer" to reduce active power and support for Hibernate, Standby and Idle modes of operations that help slash overall power consumption.

Commercial availability is expected in Q3.
