Santa Clara, California (March 28, 2016) – Marvell (NASDAQ:MRVL), a world leader in storage, cloud infrastructure, Internet of Things (IoT), connectivity and multimedia semiconductor solutions, today announced its most advanced mainstream printer system-on-chip (SoC), the Marvell® 88PA6220. This 28nm SoC delivers breakthrough performance at a low system cost by integrating a dual-core ARM® Cortex® A53 (64-bit) processor running at 1.0GHz, dual-channel configurable scan and print pipelines, a high-performance 2D/3D GPU, and an integrated GE Ethernet MAC and PHY. The 88PA6220 also introduces Marvell’s revolutionary modular chip (MoChi™) architecture into the Printer SoC family, extending the I/O capabilities of the 88PA6220 through the growing portfolio of Marvell connectivity and expansion solutions. As the industry leader in printing SoCs, Marvell’s 88PA6220 sets a new standard for mainstream performance with over 140 pages per minute (ppm) page description language (PDL) rendering. Additionally, the printer SoC rounds out Marvell’s Printer product line at a price/performance point below the recently announced 88PA6270, a high performance Quad-Core SoC for the enterprise Printer/MFP market. These advancements further establish Marvell’s printer technology leadership and reflect its commitment to driving the industry forward with new capabilities, lower solution cost, and the fastest time-to-market.
The 88PA6220 will power some of the industry’s fastest and highest quality mainstream multi-function printers (MFPs) and copiers supporting a variety of printing technologies, including ink, laser, and LED technologies. The 88PA6220 Development Kit includes a hardware evaluation board and shares the same Software Development Kit (SDK) with the 88PA6270.
“The 88PA6220 joins Marvell’s market-leading family of printer SoCs, establishing new performance and integration standards for the entire industry,” said Mark Montierth, Vice President and General Manager, Custom and Computing Solutions Business Unit at Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. “Packed with advanced features and unprecedented system integration, the 88PA6220 reflects Marvell’s strong commitment to maintain market dominance and enable continued innovation for our printer customers. The integrated PCIe, USB3, and new 8Gb/s per lane MoChi interfaces are powerful expansion features that enable a single printer platform to extend across a broad range of products and give our customers confidence in the 88PA6220’s abilities to meet their needs now and in the future.”
The 88PA6220 Development Kit includes a fully tested hardware development environment, complete Linux Software Development Kit, detailed documentation and application notes, reference designs, a full family of wireless connectivity solutions, power management ICs, consumables security system, and code security system. This kit enables customers to easily develop complete, full-featured, high-performance and cost-effective products.
The 88PA6220 sets a new standard for performance in the printer industry:
