Marvell expands its ARMADA SoC Family of Embedded Processors

SANTA CLARA, Calif. and NUREMBERG, Germany, Feb. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Marvell (NASDAQ: MRVL), a world leader in storage, cloud infrastructure, Internet of Things (IoT), connectivity and multimedia semiconductor solutions, today announced the 32-bit and 64-bit ARMADA® system-on-chip (SoC) ecosystem of software solutions and partners for a variety of applications. Marvell’s expanded, rich ecosystem brings strong support and commitment to the open source community with software offerings including mainline Linux kernel and mainline U-Boot on publicly available community hardware platforms. Marvell’s expansion of its 32-bit and 64-bit ARMADA SoC software ecosystem with OpenDataPlane (ODP), OpenFastPath (OFP), UEFI, openSUSE, SUSE Linux Enterprise, Yocto Project, OpenWrt and carrier grade operating systems demonstrates Marvell’s commitment to supporting its customers’ requirements to bring new products to market faster.

“The 32-bit and 64-bit ARMADA SoC family, paired with our full-featured software offering and integration with publicly available hardware platforms, is designed to enable the quick development of a variety of wired and wireless networking solutions. Our customers can already leverage the ARMADA SoC ecosystem on Marvell’s proven ARMADA 38x family, and will benefit from the expanded ecosystem of our 64-bit ARM®v8 powered ARMADA 3700 Cortex®-A53 device family and ARMADA 7K and ARMADA 8K Cortex-A72 device families based on our MoChi™ and FLC™ architecture,” said Michael Zimmerman, Vice President and General Manager of Connectivity, Storage and Infrastructure at Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. “We are excited to work with our network of global partners to provide a choice of trusted complementary products, and open source and community solutions to enable the development of sophisticated high-volume home and enterprise applications.”

Based on high-performance and highly-scalable multi-core CPU technology, the ARMADA SoC family delivers a new level of performance, integration and efficiency to high-volume enterprise applications including control plane CPUs, IP appliances, storage edge, routers, security appliances, small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) routers, network attached storage (NAS), home gateways, IoT hubs, wireless routers, Wi-Fi access points (WAP), surveillance video recorders and high-performance networking products. The 64-bit ARMv8 powered ARMADA 3700 Cortex-A53 device family and ARMADA 7K and ARMADA 8K Cortex-A72 device families based on MoChi and FLC architecture provide a new level of performance and power optimized devices. Marvell’s ARMADA SoC family is complemented by several software and hardware partners including Media5 and others.

Marvell offers in-house software solutions for enhancing and optimizing the performance of the ARMADA SoC family of embedded processors per target applications. The Marvell Accelerated Data Path (ADP) solution is targeted at home gateways and WAPs and is designed to significantly improve CPU utilization, which is necessary to support the rapidly increasing demand for high throughput. In addition, the Marvell Media Processing Engine (MMP) is designed to enable VoIP applications through integration with the open source Asterisk solution and integration with M5T SIP Client Engine SDK from Media5 Corporation; M5T SIP Client Engine SDK is now available for the ARMADA 38x SoC family.

“Media5 Corporation is honored to collaborate with Marvell. M5T SIP solutions have proven their interoperability in SIP and IMS based environments such as VoLTE, RCS and PacketCable,” said Stephane Ross, Product Line Manager at Media5 Corporation.
