A 28nm multicore communications processor series

Broadcom has introduced the 28 nanometer (nm) XLP 200-Series, a new line of low-power multicore communications processor solutions optimised for enterprise, service provider 4G/LTE, data center, cloud computing and software defined networking (SDN) environments.
The Broadcom XLP 200-Series, claimed to be the first 28nm multicore communications processor family, combines quad issue, quad threading and 2 GHz out-of-order execution capabilities with integrated networking and security acceleration — all in a single-chip solution.

Developed in partnership with network equipment companies, the XLP 200-Series integrates a grammar processing engine, a fourth generation regular expression (RegEx) engine, and a broad range of autonomous encryption and authentication processing engines to deliver comprehensive Layer 7 deep-packet inspection (DPI) capabilities and complete offload of the compute-intensive security functions from the CPU cores.


The XLP 200-Series is sampling now with production volume slated for 2H 2013.

Ron Jankov, Broadcom's Senior Vice President & GM, Processors & Wireless Infrastructure, comments: "The innovation achieved with our latest 28nm XLP-200 processor series is a win-win for our customers, delivering best-in-class performance and power consumption to enable a new class of highly efficient networks. Delivering on 28nm within just eight months post-acquisition is a testament to Broadcom's world-class expertise in acquiring technology with absolutely no interruption in innovation or execution. NetLogic Microsystem's industry-leading product portfolio has clearly benefited from access to Broadcom's broad set of leading-edge technologies, tools, centralized resources and ecosystem."
