Cavium Networks announced the PureVu CNW66xx family

Cavium Networks announced the PureVu CNW66xx family, a new line of SoC video processors capable
of addressing the growing market demand for universal wireless display
receivers at the industry’s lowest price points.

The new processor family leverages its flexible architecture to enable receiver designs that can support
a wide range of home networking and wireless video transmission protocols
including Cavium’s WiVu, WiFi Alliance 802.11-based wireless display standard
(WFD), and DLNA.

Through its high degree of integration, the new processor family enables an unprecedented combination
of flexibility, cost and performance, allowing Cavium to enhance its wireless
display product portfolio and address the full price-performance spectrum in
this market.

Unlike the CNW5xxx family which targets high-end, fully interactive, 2D and 3D home theater
solutions, Cavium’s new CNW66xx processors are designed for very
low-cost video streaming wireless display receivers targeting portable consumer
devices with built-in wireless display functionality.


Through its PureVu CNW5xxx video processor family, Cavium has established its performance
leadership by offering high quality 1080p60 H.264-based transmit and receive
wireless display solutions over standard 802.11 WiFi, with differentiating
features such as SLL (Super Low Latency), SMART QoS rate adaptation for robust
multi-room operation, and full stereo 3D support. These processors enable OEMs
to build advanced wireless display capabilities into a range of CE devices
including TVs, STBs, Blu-ray players, gaming devices, wireless HDMI transmit and
receive adapters, desktop PCs and notebook computers.

With the new CNW66xx line, the combination of the multi-protocol and the highly integrated design
enables Cavium to expand its
leadership in the wireless display adapter market by enabling the cost
sensitive segment, tied to portable CE devices including smartphones, tablets,
and notebook computers running a software client to enable seamless wireless
connectivity with Cavium’s CNW66xx based receivers. The CNW66xx was architected
as a cost-optimized solution with up to 1080p performance, which often exceeds
the requirements of most software transmit solutions

Actiontec is committed to our standards based approach for wireless HD video distribution,” said Dean
Chang, CEO of Actiontec

As more and more devices with built-in wireless transmission capabilities enter the market,
Cavium’s CNW66xx processor allows Actiontec to expand our product offering, and
to complement our high-end multi-room home theater solutions with more
aggressively priced and flexible variations for addressing the needs of the
entire market,” Chang added.
