Calxeda says that low-power servers running on its 64-bit ARM chip will be available next year.
The company will start shipping its 64-bit chip in the first half of next year, giving server makers a chance to test out the chips before building final systems.
Calxeda today announced its second-generation product line, the EnergyCore ECX-2000 family, targeting the private cloud infrastructure market. The new Server-on-a-Chip (SoC) enables an integrated fabric of high-density servers and storage, and has been selected by HP for Moonshot solutions. The ECX-2000 uses standard ARM Cortex-A15 cores up to 1.8 GHz, with the integrated Calxeda Fleet Fabric, 10Gb Ethernet, and standard I/O controllers.
In addition, Calxeda added a second 64-bit SoC to the company roadmap announced last year. Code-named "Sarita", the new 64-bit ARM Cortex-A57 SoC complements the "Lago" platform, but is pin-compatible with the ECX-1000 and new ECX-2000.
