Broadcom Corporation has introduced its 28nm XLP 200-Series, a new line of low-power multi-core communications processor solutions optimised to meet the demands of enterprise, service provider 4G/LTE, data centre, cloud computing and software defined networking (SDN) environments.

The product's introduction demonstrated the successful integration of NetLogic Microsystems and notably expands Broadcom's addressable market within the $3B communications processor market.

The Broadcom XLP 200-Series delivers up to 400 per cent faster performance than competing solutions while lowering power consumption by up to 60 per cent.

Broadcom's latest offering is the only communications processor family to combine quad issues, quad threading and 2GHz out-of-order execution capabilities with integrated networking and security acceleration.

To address the exponential growth in malware and intrusion threats in the network and cloud, the XLP 200-Series features the industry's most complete, high performance suite of security features, allowing network managers to thoroughly inspect, encrypt, authenticate and secure Internet traffic at wire speeds. Developed in partnership with the world's leading network equipment companies, the XLP 200-Series is the first to integrate a grammar processing engine, a fourth generation regular expression (RegEx) engine, and a broad range of autonomous encryption and authentication processing engines to deliver comprehensive Layer 7 deep-packet inspection (DPI) capabilities and complete offload of the compute-intensive security functions from the CPU cores.

The XLP 200-Series is sampling now with production volume slated for 2H 2013. Multiple device options and configurations are available. Visit to learn more.
