(PresseBox) ( Höhenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn, )
Lauterbach, the leading manufacturer of microprocessor development tools, today announced support for the new state-of-the art OCTEON® III MIPS64® family, 1- 48 core multicore processors, from Cavium, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications, and the digital home.

As a Cavium PACE (Partnership to Accelerate Customer End-solutions) member, Lauterbach offers the industry's leading and advanced JTAG style debuggers supporting OCTEON III. Lauterbach's TRACE32 debugger GUI, along with its accompanying features, provide development engineers with trusted tools, reducing product development time and cost. The TRACE32 PowerView software includes a very efficient and user-friendly HLL debugger for C and C++ and awareness for Linux RTOS, enabling seamless debug from kernel to processes and threads. The tools can be connected to either Windows or Linux hosts via USB or Ethernet 10/100/1000. Lauterbach tools help increase developer efficiency and reduce time to market. In addition to the TRACE32 product line, Lauterbach provides world-class embedded developer technical support. Existing Lauterbach customers can take advantage of TRACE32's modular design to inexpensively convert their existing TRACE32 debuggers to support the OCTEON III family.

"Lauterbach has worked closely with Cavium for many years in support of its network architectures and cores. With TRACE32, developers who are creating products around OCTEON's MIPS cores have access to a full range of debug functionality from bootstrap code, interrupt routines, drivers to application software," said Norbert Weiss, International Sales & Marketing Manager at Lauterbach. "We look forward to supporting OCTEON III family."

"Lauterbach continues to be a key partner for our OCTEON processors. We welcome Lauterbach's active support for our next generation, market-leading OCTEON III product line," said Tasha Castañeda, Senior Strategic Alliance Manager at Cavium. "With its world-wide sales and support infrastructure and precise engineering, Lauterbach will provide compelling hardware and software debug tools for OCTEON III customers."

The recently announced Cavium OCTEON III family delivers breakthrough performance and application-aware features for enterprise, data center, and access and service provider applications. Cavium OCTEON III processors are optimized for use in cloud computing, high-end core and edge routers, metro Ethernet, enterprise switches, 3G/4G/LTE base-stations, enterprise security gateways and appliances, storage networking and mobile core infrastructure equipment.

The OCTEON III family integrates 1 to 48 MIPS64 cores, at up to 2.5GHz, providing up to 120GHz of industry-leading 64 bit compute power per chip. Multiple chips can be combined into a single logical high-performance processor using Cavium's innovative new chip interconnect architecture. All OCTEON III processors also incorporate new dedicated hardware engines to speed search, protocol parsing and traffic management as well as enhanced cryptography, compression and deep packet inspection engines.
