Calxeda’s second generation platform to run on Cortex-A15

US-based semiconductor startup Calxeda has revealed more plans about its second generation platform which is code-named Midway, and will run on ARM’s Cortex A15 when it launches next year.

The company chose that nickname to highlight the fact that it will be about finding the right balance of I/O, storage, networking, management, memory and computational elements for each target market segment.

The second generation infrastructure will include dynamic power and routing optimisation for public and private clouds. Calxeda also shed some light on its third generation platform called Lago which will be 64-bit from the start, adopting ARM’s V8 architecture and aimed at the “warehouse-scale data centers” - which should reach the market in 2014.

The company has also announced that its EnergyCore ECX-1000 systems will be available from Penguin Computing as well as Boston Limited and Hewlett-Packard.
