Key Features

Empowered by Marvell® ARMADA® Chipset

Empowered by Marvell CPU ARM based

Marvell® ARMADA® 8040 is based on a quad-core ARM Cortex®–A72 processor and supports full CPU and I/O virtualization. Meanwhile, it includes an advanced packet processor with rich state-of-the-art connectivity including two 10GbE SFP ports, four 1GbE RJ-45 ports and one expansion slot (PCIe x2). It makes the PUZZLE-M801 ideal for a wild range of IP appliances and data plane applications as well as virtual CPE and enterprise applications.

Ideally Designed for NGFW, SDN and NFV Applications

Based on ARM v8 architecture, ARMADA® 8040 SoC is capable of realizing various SDN deployment. Advanced Exception Layer (EL) provides support for virtual functions such as Linux KVM and Container with secured or non-secured protection.  GIC and SMMU have also been updated to adapt to address translation and interrupt mechanism required in virtual application such as VM, vNIC, vSwitch and SR-IOV.

It is also equipped with DPDK compatible packet processor hardware, which processes packet parsing, classifying and buffer & descriptor management. Its security engine provides crypto hardware acceleration for some parts of SDN functions such as  L2,L3 checksum offload, CRC offload and IPsec handling.
