StrataGX™ Communications Processor with Network Acceleration Hardware
Designed as companions to its full line of 5G WiFi 802.11ac solutions, the Broadcom StrataGX™ BCM5301x Series are the industry's first SoCs to combine a high performance processor, Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch, GbE physical layer transceivers (PHYs), USB 3.0 and traffic accelerators all on a single chip.
Designed to enable faster, more power efficient enterprise and small-to-medium business (SMB) networks, Broadcom's StrataGX series of SoCs address the impact of services and adoption of 5G WiFi on enterprise access points, enterprise switches, and business gateways, delivering 10x faster speeds and 40 percent more power efficient solutions.
At the center of the each of the devices is a high-performance 1 GHz ARM® Cortex™-A9 dual-core with a 32 KB four-way set associative instruction cache and a 32 KB four-way set associative data cache. Enhanced CPU memory subsystem architecture provides increased system performance.
