Marvell’s Final-Level Cache (FLC™) and MOdular CHIp (MoChi™) technologies provide the foundation for a significant paradigm shift that will revolutionize integrated circuit (IC) design by decreasing the cost, complexity, power and form factor of next-generation systems and chips.
Final-Level Cache (FLC) Architecture
A groundbreaking architecture, Final-Level Cache or FLC redefines the main memory hierarchy by substantially reducing the amount of DRAM main memory needed in a system. FLC cuts the DRAM capacity needed by as much as a factor of ten, promising lower cost and enabling computing systems to use about half the energy they consume today.
MOdular CHIp (MoChi) Architecture
MOdular CHIp or MoChi architecture enables building a virtual system-on-chip by “plugging in” a set of MoChi blocks in a LEGO®-like concept. Separated into performance and cost optimized compute and non-compute MoChi units, the architecture provides the ability to interconnect these chip blocks with each other and the flexibility to do so in a variety of combinations, significantly reducing time-to-market and cost of developing products.
