OCTEON II CN61XX Family of Multi-Core MIPS64 Processors

2 to 4 cnMIPS64 v2 cores processors for  SMB and mid-level modular and fixed enterprise platforms for networking and storage including switches, routers and WLAN controllers

OCTEON II CN61XX Multi-Core MIPS64 Processors

The Marvell® OCTEON® II CN61XX family of multi-core MIPS64 processors targets SMB and mid-level modular and fixed enterprise platforms for networking and storage including switches, routers, UTM, mainstream control plane, WLAN controllers, and NAS/iSCSI appliances.

The family includes four software and pin-compatible processors, with two to four cnMIPS64 v2 cores delivering a cumulative processing of up to 4.4GHz in a single chip, comprehensive application acceleration engines for packet processing, RAID, encryption/decryption and regular expression, storage, 1MB of L2 cache, and innovative real-time PowerOptimizer™ features, HFA™ DPI, and Authentik™ anti-counterfeiting technologies. CN61xx includes 8 latest standards-based SERDES I/Os including 4 x1 PCIe Gen2, 4 SGMII/1 XAUI, and 2 RGMII. Supported by industry-standard software toolchains and operating systems, the CN61XX enables scalability from one to four cores and 400MHz to 4.8Ghz with the same hardware and software design. OCTEON II family is fully software-compatible with the widely-adopted OCTEON Plus family, enabling straightforward software reuse.
