Communications Processor with Network Acceleration Hardware
The Broadcom BCM4707/4708/4709 processor is a communications device targeted for applications in switching control and management, and residential router/gateway. The BCM4707/4708/4709 family includes the BCM4707, BCM4708, and BCM4709.
At the center of the device is a high-performance 1 GHz ARM® Cortex™-A9 dual-core with a 32 KB four-way set associative instruction cache, a 32 KB four-way set associative data cache, and a 128-entry translation lookaside buffer (TLB). Enhanced CPU memory subsystem architecture provides increased system performance. The device uses state-of-the-art 40 nm technology.
