SolidRun Introduces First OCTEON TX2 CN9130 Mini SoM Capable of 10GbE Networking Speeds

TEL AVIV, Israel, June 09, 2021 / PRNewswire / – SolidRun, a leading developer and manufacturer of advanced high-performance computing solutions, today announced a new line of mini, embedded System-on-Module (SoM) solutions powered by the OCTEON TX2 CN9130 Quad-core Arm Cortex A72 processors from Marvell. These complete, network-centric SoMs may be tiny, with a 50 x 35mm PCB footprint, but they come equipped with a powerful processor, power management subsystem, memory, flash storage, I / O, and interconnected subsystems. Available in high-performance commercial and industrial fanless variants, this SoM offers incredible network capabilities, while consuming just 11 watts of power.

“Today’s networks become increasingly complex as services, analytics and network functions migrate to the edge,” said Dr. Atai Ziv, CEO of SolidRun. “By combining this complexity with the impending proliferation of 5G, the need for ultra-high performance network appliances for the cloud, the edge and everywhere in between becomes evident. Our line of OCTEON TX2 CN9130-based SoMs and flexible carriers will fuel the development of these products, meeting the demands of next-generation networking, enterprise and data center applications. “

With the speed, compact size, and deployment flexibility offered by the CN9130 mini SoM, SolidRun provides developers with the foundation to build next-generation intelligent commercial and industrial advanced networking, security, and computing applications, such as as base stations, 5G routers and gateways, edge servers, software-defined networking applications, as well as high-speed network storage. It has powerful network connectivity including high speed networking, storage and security accelerators, 3x PCIe ports, 1x 10GbE port, 2x USB 3.0, 2x SATA 3.0 and more. It supports major Linux and OpenWrt operating systems, and provides comprehensive network virtualization capabilities.

SolidRun continues to develop its new SoMs taking into account footprint, pin compatibility, and shared software resources to help customers sustain their products. Sharing the same form factor and pin layout as SolidRun’s A38x SoM, the new CN9130 SoM offers customers a direct replacement upgrade path for existing A38x-based products.

“In order to truly maximize the vast capabilities of modern high-performance data networks, the hardware must be capable of significantly faster throughput and more robust security from the cloud to the edge of the network,” said Jeffrey Ho, Senior Marketing Director of the Infrastructure Processors Group at Marvell. “We are excited about the latest CN9130 SoM from SolidRun as it is an ideal solution to accelerate the development of next generation high performance network hardware that leverages the performance of our powerful OCTEON TX2 SoCs.”

For rapid prototyping or to accelerate the time to market of new products based on the CN9130 SoM, SolidRun offers two extremely flexible and network-centric carrier boards: ClearFog CN9130 Pro and ClearFog Base CN9130. These carrier boards can be deployed as is, allowing manufacturers to stay ahead of the competition by dramatically reducing device engineering time, or can be used by developers to rapidly prototype custom applications. Both carriers offer next-generation computing and network performance, along with flexible power and connectivity options. Additionally, both support platforms are well suited for commercial applications and can be deployed in fanless configurations, withstanding extreme temperatures ranging from -40 ° C to 85 ° C.

Ideal for networking, routing, network storage, and IoT gateway applications, ClearFog Pro pairs the CN9130 SoM with a wide range of I / O options, including 5 switched Ethernet ports and an SFP + cage for demanding network applications. It also features Mini-PCIe and M.2 expansion slots which are useful for adding WIFI or LTE communication capabilities.

Perfect for advanced NFV applications at the edge, ClearFog Base offers a ton of useful features in a compact footprint. It supports dual LTE and dual SIM cards for extended connectivity, and has 2 GbE ports and an SFP + cage for intensive networking, as well as USB 3.0 connectivity.
