Cavium Ships Game Changing NEURON Search™ Processor Family

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cavium, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications, and the digital home, today announced shipment of the NEURON Search™ Processor family to Networking OEM customers for their system designs. The new, groundbreaking NEURON Search Processor family is targeted at a wide range of high performance, L2-L4 Network Search applications in Enterprise and Service Provider Infrastructure equipment. It supports both IPv4 and IPv6 rules and delivers 100 million to over 1 billion searches per second with guaranteed low latency. With up to 4x the capacity per chip enabling the replacement of four existing state-of-the-art 40 Mbit TCAMs, the NEURON Search processors consume as little as a quarter of the power of Legacy TCAMs, while slashing the cost, making them ideal for a wide range of Enterprise, Data Center, Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Wired/Wireless Service Provider applications.


Expensive, power hungry legacy TCAMs and low performance algorithmic forwarding search processors until now have slowed the potential wider adoption of search technology. Cavium researchers took a completely different approach and developed groundbreaking, patent-pending search technology that removes several critical constraints, which enables highly flexible storage with very high capacity and low power. Additionally, Cavium NEURON Search technology enables consistent storage and performance while migrating from IPv4 to IPv6 unlike TCAMs.  In TCAMs the number of rules falls dramatically going from IPv4 to IPv6. These compelling advantages will enable wider adoption of search technology.

"NEURON Search Processor family is a new highly-innovative product line from Cavium that provides breakthrough benefits to our customers," said Rajneesh Gaur, General Manager of Cavium's Accelerator & Adapter Group. "Our system test results on this product family so far have met or exceeded all our designs specifications for performance, power, storage and cost.  Our customers are delighted with these results."
