The Malt System multi-core processor development team (based at Moscow State University) has registered a chip with its own architecture, created using 16 nm technology, in Rospatent.
The processor (under the brand Enceladus) is designed for stream processing of network traffic at speeds up to 1 Gbps; the processor can ensure the security of network connections “through software encryption/decryption of traffic using any domestic or foreign algorithms.”
The company experts say that Enceladus will not be bigger than 9x9 mm in a BGA package. “It is smaller than an RJ-45 connector. Such a processor can be installed in almost any device.” Silicon samples will be available in the first quarter of 2022. Enceladus SDK and debug board will be released in the third quarter of 2022.
