Fujitsu Selects RMI Multi-Core Multi-Threaded XLR Processor

RMI Corporation, a leading supplier of multi-core, multi-threaded processors for communications and media rich applications, announced that Fujitsu Limited, a leading telecommunication equipment supplier, has selected RMI’s Multi-core Multi-threaded XLR[tm] Processor for Fujitsu’s LTE Base Station product. Fujitsu’s LTE Base Station will be utilized by large telecommunications carriers to meet the growing needs of wireless connectivity. The LTE Base Station from Fujitsu utilizes the XLR Processor[tm] which incorporates an innovative set of XLR cores enabling multiple threads, or virtual CPUs (vCPUs[tm]), in a single chip.

“The XLR Processor’s capabilities and the performance levels give us the necessary performance for our LTE system,” said Katsuhiko Tanahashi, General Manager, Mobile Systems Unit at Fujitsu. “This performance matched with the ease of programmability enables us to deliver a very robust infrastructure system to our customers.”

“By working with Fujitsu, we are able to fully demonstrate the features and the performance of the XLR Processor while matching what Fujitsu and its customers require for its LTE product,” said Sunny Siu, president, RMI Asia. “This agreement with Fujitsu underscores our focus and success in the telecom infrastructure market and we are happy to be working together on this important program.”

The XLR architecture is built around two to eight XLR processor-enhanced MIPS64® compatible cores, implementing fine-grained, 4-way multithreading, combined with a multi-level hierarchy of caches, autonomous accelerators, and point-to-point interconnects for data and message transfers. The interconnects’ full-speed operation augments application scalability and tightly integrates the high performance main memory controllers, level-2 caches, 10Gbps accelerated security operations, and accelerated networking interfaces to deliver a processing solution running at frequencies of 800MHz to 1.2GHz optimized for maximum throughput and workload efficiency.

RMI’s multi-core multi-threaded processors provide a rich set of features and performance levels to address the wide variety of integrated next generation applications, including integrated security, Web services, virtualized storage, load balancing, server offload and intelligent routing and switching systems. The XLR700 and XLR500 Processor series are software and hardware compatible and each processor is available in a variety of power options including standard, low and ultra low power. The XLS Processor[tm] family consists of cost-effective devices for embedded communication and networking, SMB and client oriented solutions. These solutions include integrated security, access points, routers and switch products. Each RMI Processor within its series is software and hardware compatible, and the XLS[tm] 600, 400, and 200 series processors are software compatible.
