System on a Chip (SoC) combines 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. Broadcom's StrataGX Series includes: 
  -BCM53010 and BCM53014 with single-core Cortex-A9 CPU at 800 MHz, 256KB L2 cache, 16-bit DDR2 interface, integrated switch, GPHYs and packet accelerator 
  -BCM53011 and BCM53015 with with dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU at 800 MHz, 256KB L2 cache, 16-bit DDR2 interface, USB3, integrated switch, GPHYs and packet accelerator 
  -BCM53012 and BCM53016 with dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU at 1 GHz, 256KB L2 cache, 16-bit DDR2 interface, USB3 integrated switch, GPHYs and packet accelerator 
  -BCM53017 and BCM53018 with dual Cortex-A9 CPU up to 1.1 GHz, 512KB L2 cache (including ECC), 16-bit DDR2 interface, USB3, integrated switch, GPHYs and packet accelerator
