Enabling a virtual system-on-chip (vSoC) and customized I/O configurations

ARMADA 7K Family

Best in class SoC solution for a wide range of SoHo, SMB, and Enterprise class applications, the ARMADA 7K family includes a dual-core ARM Cortex-A72 in the ARMADA 7020 and a quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 in the ARMADA 7040. Built as part of Marvell's MoChi™ family of products, both have a MCi interface that is essentially transparent to the driver, enabling a virtual system-on-chip (vSoC) and customized I/O configurations.
