Marvell has launched the ARMADA 300 processor with 2GHz performance. The ARMADA 300 extends the ARMADA family by including both Plug Computing server applications and new levels of advanced sensor processing for consumer devices. ARMADA 300-powered devices are designed to revolutionize the digital home by offering compact, low-power, affordable solutions; for the first time, to enable performance-bound, digital home innovative applications and services.

"With the launch of the ARMADA 300, Marvell is setting a new standard for system performance and integration with extremely low power consumption for a 2GHz high performance processor core," said Simon Milner, VP and general manager, enterprise business unit, communications and consumer group at Marvell. "The adoption of the ARMADA 300 series into new digital home and small office devices illustrates the need for this new breed of processor."

"With the ARMADA 300 Marvell is setting the bar high for embedded computing," said Rob Enderle, principal analyst for the Enderle Group. "Their expertise in low-power, high performance processors is enabling completely new classes of products, like the plug computer, that will change the way people live their lives."

The ARMADA family of application processors sets a new standard by offering PC-class performance enabled by Marvell's patented CPU technology. Designed from the ground-up, Marvell's best-in-class CPUs for the ARM instruction set are at the heart of each chip. Unlike other comparable, commercially available products in the industry, Marvell CPUs deliver higher performance and lower power dissipation while providing full software compatibility to all ARM-based applications. The ARMADA 300 series offers more than 2GHz processing horsepower in a sub 2W power envelope for the entire System on Chipa level of performance never before seen with this class of processorand the flexibility, interfaces and price points that fit the needs of today's digital economy.
