Marvell, a provider of complete silicon solutions from mobile communications to storage, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud infrastructure, digital entertainment, in-home content delivery and Kinoma software, has unleashed what it boasts as the industry's most advanced printer SoC. The 28nm 88PA6270 boasts a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 (64bit) processor running at 1.2GHz, Marvell's 32bit DDR3/4 memory controller, dual-channel configurable scan and print pipelines, high-speed expansion options and a Vivante 2D/3D GPU, providing over 220 pages per minute (ppm) page description language (PDL) rendering.

The 88PA6270 is geared to power the industry's fastest and highest quality enterprise-class multi-function printers (MFPs) and copiers and integrates ink, laser and LED technologies. In the past, to achieve this level of performance these products have required a separate PC-class CPU; the 88PA6270 is designed to enable OEMs to adopt a common architecture across their entire product line. The 88PA6270 also advances a novel class of 3D printers with the imaging horsepower to provide high-performance object rendering and slicing, and includes the cloud and mobile connectivity required by today's mobile users.

The 88PA6270 has received strong acceptance and has begun sampling to lead OEMs in U.S., Japan and Korea.

With Marvell's complete SDK and partnership with Global Graphics Software to provide access to the industry's highest performing rendering engines, OEMs can greatly expedite their development and greatly shorten their time to introduction. The SDK seamlessly integrates Marvell's breakthrough JavaScript Kinoma software.

The 88PA6270 Development Kit includes a fully tested hardware development environment, complete Linux Software Development Kit, detailed documentation and application notes, reference designs, a full family of wireless connectivity solutions, power management ICs, consumables security system, code security system and Kinoma software. This kit enables customers to easily develop complete, full-featured, high-performance and cost-effective products, stated the company.

The 88PA6270 is sampling and will be in production in 2H15.
