AppliedMicro also offers the industry’s first integrated software programmable co-processor within the APM86491 Catalina SoC for application specific customizable offloads. SLIMpro allows AppliedMicro to provide the industry’s first receive-side TCP offload engine to further improve network throughput. Performance improves more than 100 percent in applications such as NAS through the use of a TCP receive side offload engine. Performance is also provided by Catalina’s 1 GHz Power Architecture® 465 CPU featuring a dual issue, out-of-order processor core. The net result for consumers is uninterrupted performance with no stalls during data transfers. Furthermore, bandwidth multiplexing, speed and coverage range of IEEE 802.11ac wireless solutions are improved as On-The-Go (OTG) sharing becomes more pervasive through smart phones, tablets, laptops and HD displays.The SLIMpro co-processor responds to network control packets while the main CPU and the rest of the SoC remain in a deep sleep mode, operating at less than 250mW to further reduce Total Cost of Ownership. The SoC operates at less than 3W under typical operation conditions to support Power-over-Ethernet (POE) requirements. Low power operation also eliminates cooling fans and heat sinks from system designs for reduced bill-of-material cost.
The Catalina APM86491 Is Available Now In Sample Quantities And Production Quantities Are Expected In The Second Quarter. AppliedMicro Is Demonstrating Catalina-based Wireless Access Point Designs At 2012 International CES (Graphic: Business Wire)
