Cavium (NASDAQ: CAVM) is a provider of
highly integrated semiconductor products that enable
intelligent processing in networking, cloud communications, and the digital home. Cavium offers a broad
portfolio of integrated, software compatible processors
ranging inperformance from 1Gbps to 100Gbps that
enable secure, intelligent functionality in Enterprise,
Data-Center, Broadband/Consumer and Access and
Service Provider equipment. Cavium’s processors are
supported by ecosystem partners that provide operating
systems, tools and application support, hardware
reference designs and other services. Cavium's principal
offices are in San Jose, California with design team
locations in Massachusetts, India, Taiwan and China.
• OCTEON® Multi-core MIPS64 Processors:
Provide a scalable family of processors with one to
forty-eight cnMIPS® cores on a SoC along with the most
advanced networking, security and application hardware
acceleration. The cnMIPS® core is Cavium’s custom
implementation of MIPS64 release 2, optimized for
networking, and services with very low power
consumption. Application hardware acceleration engines
for QoS, packet processing, TCP, compression, encryption,
SNOW 3G, KASUMI, RAID, de-duplication and pattern
matching enable OCTEON to deliver unmatched
scalability, performance and integration from 1Gbps to
over 100 Gbps of network performance in a single chip.
OCTEON supports flexible standards-based I/O's
including gigabit Ethernet, 10 gigabit Ethernet, PCI
Express Gen 1 & 2, USB2.0, serial Rapid 1/O (sRIO), SATA
and Interlaken.

• OCTEON Fusion®: OCTEON Fusion® Family,
the industry’s most powerful, small cell "Base
Station-on-a-chip" family are specifically designed for LTE
& 3G multi-mode small cell base stations, including
picocell and micro base stations. OCTEON Fusion
processors combine OCTEON’s widely successful
multi-core architecture along with purpose-built
Baseband DSP cores, extensive LTE/3G hardware
accelerators and digital front end (DFE) features into a
single chip, slashing the BOM cost and power envelope of
small cell base stations.
• Project Thunder: A Family of highly integrated,
multi-core SoC processors that will incorporate highly
optimized, full custom cores built from the ground up
based on 64-bit ARMv8 instruction set architecture (ISA)
into an innovative system-on-chip (SoC) that will redefine
features, performance, power and cost metrics for the
next-generation cloud and datacenter markets. Details of
coprocessors TBA in late 2013.
• NITROX® Processors: The NITROX family supports
cryptography and compression at up to 40 Gbps and
up to 200K RSA Ops/sec. It is ideally suited for enterprise
routers and switches, data center networking appliances,
integrated security appliances and service provider
• NEURON Search™ Processors: Provide high
performance and low power L2-L4 network search for
enterprise and service provider infrastructure
equipment. Includes support for both IPv4 and IPv6
rules and delivers 100 million to over I billion
searches/second based on patent pending Search
Technology. This family delivers four times the
capacity/watt per chip providing significant power savings
to customers.
• PureVu® Media Processors: Highly integrated media
processors with integrated ARM core, security, and
graphics accelerators. These SoCs are capable of full HD
video up to 1080p60 and target worldwide mobile
handset providers, carriers, digital terrestrial, satellite,
cable, and IP based operators as well as retail products. The
ARM based SOC’s advanced features include
multi-standard video codecs, image and display
processing, advanced conditional access, and 2D graphics
acceleration making it suitable for wireless display and thin
client IPTV Set-top-box applications. The rich software
stack supports industry standards for wireless display and
streaming services such as Miracast, WiDi, WiVu, DLNA,
HLS, and Smooth streaming, and content protection using
HDCP, DTCP, and other DRMs.
• Intelligent Network & Security Adapters: Includes
three major product families: OCTEON Intelligent
Network, NITROX XL and NITROX XL FIPS HSM Adapters.
The OCTEON Intelligent Network Adapters support several
offloads including compression, crypto, DPI, TCP,
De-duplication and RAID. NITROX XL Adapters deliver 30
Gbps of crypto processing and over 60 Gbps of
compression processing along with over 1 million RSA
Ops/sec. The FIPS HSM Adapters deliver 5 Gbps of crypto
performance, 45K Ops/sec and are certified to the
stringent FIPS 140-2 Level 3 standard.
Cavium Services and Solutions (CSS) provides a group of
highly experienced architects and developers who are
dedicated to help customers accelerate development.
Furthermore, CSS offers TurboDPI software, a production
ready solution integrating protocol analysis, application
recognition, URL filtering, IDS/IPS and anti-malware.
