By Johnny Truong, Senior Manager, Public Relations, Marvell

The Marvell® OCTEON® 10 DPU was awarded the 2022 Analysts’ Choice Awards for “Best Embedded Processor” in TechInsight’s Microprocessor Report

One of the longest-running award programs of its kind, it salutes the top semiconductor offerings in the categories of data center, PC, smartphone, and embedded processors, as well as processor IP cores and related emerging technologies. Winning products were selected for superior features, performance, power, and cost in the context of the company’s target applications and competition.  

The OCTEON 10 DPU–the world’s first Arm Neoverse N2-based processor in 5nm–is the latest version of the OCTEON processor family. By accelerating wireless, networking, storage, security and other specialized workloads, OCTEON 10 enables best-in-class features, performance, energy efficiency, and total cost of ownership for carriers, cloud providers, and enterprises.   

The OCTEON processor family is used by four of the top six wireless infrastructure OEMs, in nine of the top 10 firewall appliances, and by other major networking OEMs. 

TechInsight Chief Analyst Joseph Byrne said: “Processors for communications infrastructure have long pushed the leading edge for embedded products. Marvell’s feat shows that succeeding in the high-performance-embedded market doesn’t require leveraging smartphone or PC/server technology.”
