Raza Microelectronics Inc. announced the XLS processor family, a midrange to entry-level, price-optimized family positioned below the XLR processor family. The XLS is a general purpose processor, with a high level of programmability, scalability, intelligent packet management and the ability to combine control plane, data plane and security operations into an SoC processor.

Leveraging key technology from RMI's flagship XLR processor, including its MIPS-based multicore, multithread architecture, the XLS processor provides the speed, scalability and innovation necessary for midrange to entry-level applications while maintaining software compatibility throughout both product families. The XLS product family addresses applications where PCB real estate and power are a premium, as well as those requiring integrated network connectivity, security and compression acceleration options. The XLS product family consists of the 600 series, 400 series and 200 series, and features unprecedented power and performance for embedded communication, telecom, enterprise wireless and wired-line LAN, and SMB networking. The XLS processor family accelerates packet-oriented applications essential for security appliances, wireless access points and switches, ATCA and AMC service cards, secured wire-line routers and switches, and telecom media gateways, radio controllers and network signaling products.

'The XLS processor exemplifies our technology leadership and exhibits the innovation and capability of our design team here at RMI. We believe that it is the right product with the right features for our most demanding customers,' said Lance Smith, VP and general manager, scalable processor solutions at RMI. 'This entry level to midrange offering gives our customers a feature-rich, high-performance yet cost-optimized solution enabling them to further penetrate across diverse products and geographies which will in turn result in continued growth.'
