OCTEON II CN63XX Family of Multi-Core MIPS64 Processors

2 to 6 cnMIPS64 v2 cores processors for high-volume applications in enterprise routers, switches, appliances, basestations, and storage and server adapters  up to 10+Gbps

OCTEON II CN63XX Multi-Core MIPS64 Internet Application Processors

The Marvell® OCTEON® II CN63XX family of multi-core MIPS64 internet application processors targets mainstream, high-volume applications in enterprise routers, switches, control plane applications, appliances, 3G/4G basestations, and intelligent storage and server adapters. The family includes six software and pin-compatible processors, with two to six cnMIPS64 v2 cores at up to 1.5GHz speed on a massively integrated SoC.  It also has the latest SERDES-based I/Os including PCIe Gen2, XAUI, and sRIO, along with advanced third-generation application hardware acceleration. CN63XX processors deliver over 10Gbps application performance. Supported by industry-standard software toolchains and operating systems, the CN63XX offers 2X to 5X performance, power, and real-estate advantages over alternatives.
