CN70XX Enterprise WLAN IEEE 802.11AC Access Point Reference Board and
Reference Design Kit
Product Brief
OVERVIEW
The Cavium CN71XX WLAN Enterprise access point is a complete Production-ready, bill of materials (BOM)-optimized
solution based on OCTEON III CN70XX low-power multi-core processor. The solution features single or dual 802.11 ac and
802.11 a/b/g/n 3 x 3 MIMO radios through miniPCI Express interface, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, USB 3.0 port and Power
over Ethernet (PoE).
Cavium’s OCTEON III single, dual and quad-core SoCs CN70XX deliver an unprecedented amount of compute performance
per chip enabling superb throughput and headroom to handle a broad range of applications including enterprise WLAN
access point. These low-power processors are the world's first to include up to four MIPS64® cores with full hardware
virtualization, Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), Packet processing, Security and QOS capabilities in a highly integrated System
on a Chip.
Feature Highlight:
• OCTEON CN7130LP 4-core 1GHz low power quad core processor
• Suitable for fanless design with plastic enclosure
• 2 x miniPCI Express (PCIe) connector for 802.11 a/b/g/n dual band cards and 801.11ac cards
• Support QCA9880/QCA9890 and QCA9850 WiFi chipset
• 2 x 10/100/1000 Based-T ports. One port supports PoE.
• 1 GB DDR3 SRAM
• 1 x USB 3.0 ports
• Cost-optimized BOM by hardware ODMs
• Comprehensive software packages including device drivers, Cavium SDK 3.1 and ADK 3.1 supporting Linux 3.10.
