MoChi interfaced virtual SOC support CPU and I/O virtualisation

Marvell is sampling ARM Cortex-A72 based system-on-chip (SoC) Marvell ARMADA 7000 and 8000 based on its MoChi architecture. ARMADA 7000 (88F70x0) and 8000 (88F80x0) each feature dual- and quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 processors. Due to the MoChi interface, all the connected MoChi modules appear to the ARMADA 7000 or 8000 driver as an integrated function enabling a virtual system-on-chip and customized I/O configurations. The new SoC families can integrate multiple 10GE ports with packet processor and additional offload engines for security and storage with full CPU and I/O virtualisation. Michael Zimmerman, Vice President and General Manager, Connectivity, Storage and Infrastructure (CSI) Business Units at Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. said “Areas in compute, scalability, and the software ecosystem are increasingly being presented with challenges across many industries. We believe we have addressed these challenges head on by leveraging our MoChi architecture. Our new SoCs are designed to deliver top performance, efficiency and design integration, and support full virtualization. We are already witnessing great success with our global Tier-1 vendors.” “The growth of IoT-driven data requires a network infrastructure that deploys scalable and flexible compute solutions across the entire network,” said Nandan Nayampally, Vice President of Marketing and Strategy, CPU Group, ARM. “The ARMADA 7000 and 8000 SoCs take advantage of the increased throughput and efficiency inherent in the Cortex-A72 core. Coupled with Marvell’s MoChi technology, these SoCs enable the development of high performance and efficient platforms for SoHo, SMB, enterprise, and data center class applications.” Features of Marvell’s ARMADA 8000 include: Quad- and dual-core ARM Cortex-A72 at 2.0GHz 1MB shared L2 cache; 1MB exclusive L3 cache Full ARMv8-A CPU virtualization and I/O virtualization Coherent memory subsystem Networking packet processor with 2x10GbE + 4x2.5GbE connectivity SuitB compatible, 10Gbp/s throughout security engine, IPSEC and SSL protocols offload DDR3/3L/4 32b/64b+ECC extension SATA3.0, USB3.0, PCIe3.0 Features of Marvell’s ARMADA 7000 include: Quad- and dual-core ARM Cortex-A72 at 1.8 / 1.4GHz 1MB shared L2 cache; 1MB exclusive L3 cache Full ARMv8-A CPU virtualization and I/O virtualization Coherent memory subsystem Networking packet processor with 1x10GbE + 2x2.5GbE connectivity SuitB compatible, 5Gbp/s throughout security engine, IPSEC and SSL protocols offload DDR3/3L/4 32b+ECC extension SATA3.0, USB3.0, PCIe3.0
