Marvell Mips SOC

Marvell Firehawk RD/DB-88E6318 Rev 2.0 Link Street Family

Marvell Firehawk RD/DB-88E6318

This SOC is the main part of the product from Sarotech NHD-355 (if is considered as a pub, erase)

Summary from Marvell site

The Link Street 88E6318 gateway router integrates a proven IPSec VPN security acceleration engine to secure sensitive network traffic with a high-level of network throughput. The 88E6318 device attains high performance for SME routers: wire-speed bi-directional routing with NAT (simultaneous WAN-to-LAN and LAN-to-WAN), and wire speed ftp download performance. A 64-bit MIPS processor for full-wire-speed packet routing powers the device.

In addition, the device integrates

  • the Link Street 88E6063 QoS switching fabric,
  • the Company's Fast Ethernet digital PHY technology with built-in Virtual Cable Testerâ„¢ diagnostics
  • 2 UART ports
  • IEEE 1284 Parallel Port
  • JTAG
  • FLASH and DRAM interface
  • GPIO
  • I2C serial
  • NetGX security engine based on the Tensilica's Xtensa processor
  • and an on-chip PCI bus enabling the addition of external wireless LAN modules

all incorporated within a single system-on-a-chip. With the integration of the NetGX security engine, the 88E6318 device provides performance improvements up to 6x relative to current SMB/SOHO security products.
