At LSI's annual AIS (Accelerating Innovation Summit) LSI announced the release of the Axxia 4500 family of communications processors for enterprise and datacenter applications. The switch from 40nm Power PC processors to a four-core 28nm ARM Corex A15 brought power efficiency and expanded functionality to bear. The series gains a 20% power advantage from the move to the ARM Cortex A15 architecture, along with a bump from 1.3 to 1.6ghz.
The CoreLink CCN-504 coherent architecture, along with the QoS aware interconnect, allows the addition of the LSI Virtual Pipeline technology for quick reconfiguration of the processors for optimal configuration on a packet-by-packet basis.
StreamSight Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) allows the system to look into the datastream to detect the type of data and applications. This enables the system to make decisions based upon the data and is very useful for security and data analytics applications.
The Axxia 4500 guarantees trade compliance and allows for real-time detection of fraudulent trades.
The architecture of the Axxia processor allows for easy modification of the base design to provide easy customization options for customers.
