马维尔 introduced its high performance, hyper-scale 马维尔 AP806 and ARMADA A3700 chips, the company’s flagship 64-bit ARM Powered products based on 马维尔’s rmodular chip or MoChi architecture. The AP806 integrates 马维尔’s Final-Level Cache (FLC) architecture, and is designed as a virtual system-on-chip (Marvell VSoC) with multiple storage and networking companion modules. A groundbreaking ARM Cortex-A72 based SoC, the AP806 easily and seamlessly connects to other 马维尔 MoChi modules creating a Virtual SoC that enables lower system cost, simpler board design and faster time-to-market. The MoChi architecture offers developers and engineers the flexibility to build solutions based on their individual needs, making the Hyper-Scale Quad Cortex-A72 AP806 the most versatile, advanced SoC on the market.
马维尔 is also introducing another member in the MoChi architecture family, the ARMADA A3700, a Dual and Single Cortex-A53 based chip integrated with a mix of networking and storage IPs that can be expanded with additional MoChi modules for connectivity and offload options such as packet processor offloads, Wi-Fi, BLE, ZigBee, USB, SATA, etc. The ARMADA A3700 chip addresses cloud-distributed storage, networking management, home and small office/home office (SOHO) routers and storage solutions, and battery-powered IoT devices. The 马维尔 AP806 and ARMADA A3700 MoChi chips continue the success of the earlier ARMADA SoC generations such as the Cortex-A9 based ARMADA 380 which is now available in 2GHz core speed.
“Today’基于独特的MoChi和FLC架构推出的首款产品标志着重要的里程碑，我们很高兴看到它将对技术行业产生巨大影响，以帮助推动行业发展。‘智慧生活，智慧生活’,”智能网络设备和解决方案（SNDS）业务组高级副总裁Maya Strelar-Migotti说。“Marvell’s MoChi and FLC architectures are designed to provide a solution to combat the pain points that the industry faces in the move to new process technology nodes, and to address the critical need for lower operating power systems. The 马维尔 AP806 and ARMADA A3700 are the first MoChi modules in a long line of 马维尔 offerings that will truly redefine how we innovate and build devices, bringing new, cost- and energy-efficient solutions, and helping to improve the lives of people around the world.”
“随着行业继续朝着先进的工艺节点发展，推动力一直是越来越多地集成到每个SoC中。但是，超过28nm时，R急剧上升&D和掩模的成本开始对半导体公司的利润造成损害，”Linley Group的创始人兼首席分析师Linley Gwennap说。“The introduction of 马维尔’AP806 MoChi模块是创建新工艺的第一步，该工艺可以改变行业设计芯片的方式。该虚拟SoC是一种更简单，更灵活的方法，可以减少设计成本并加快产品上市时间。”
马维尔’s MoChi architecture was designed to address the challenges of producing single-die SoCs, which have historically provided steep cost advantages through integration but have now reached a limit whereby the cost per transistor cannot linearly be improved. Implementing MoChi architecture in the AP806 and ARMADA A3700 provides an optimized process selection per MoChi building block while reducing the software investment for a single architecture, and allows for countless configurations and shorter time-to-market. A key element to the MoChi architecture is 马维尔’s second generation Aurora2 coherent interconnect technology. This high-speed, high-bandwidth interconnect effectively ties together the CPU clusters and the MCi interfaces for coherent, high-performance traffic. The AP806 also builds on 马维尔’最终级别高速缓存（FLC）技术，该技术减少了系统中所需的DRAM主内存量，并用一小层高速DRAM高速缓存和便宜的固态驱动器（SSD）主内存代替，从而提供了可观的成本和省电。
“Networking and cloud infrastructure is evolving rapidly to address exponential traffic and storage growth so the ARM ecosystem is responding with highly integrated solutions such as 马维尔’的超大规模AP806和ARMADA A3700芯片，”ARM嵌入式营销副总裁Charlene Marini说。“节能的ARM Cortex-A72和Cortex-A53处理器与MoChi架构相结合，提供了高度可扩展的平台来开发创新的存储和网络解决方案，从而简化系统集成。”
