Optimized Platform for Development of Cable Gateways


The Intel® Puma™ 7 Development Kit is a reference platform that helps accelerate development of cable gateway solutions. It integrates a powerful host SoC and the latest Wi-Fi and Ethernet technologies to deliver high-performance connectivity for applications such as online gaming and VR/AR where very large files are being moved between the PC and the cloud. The platform is optimized at the system level for easier, faster, and more cost-effective development, and offers flexibility for OEMs to customize the solution for their unique requirements.

Product Details

  • Host SoC: The Intel® Puma™ 7 SoC is a DOCSIS* 3.1 solution that offers advantages in computing and networking performance, RF noise rejection and packet processor flexibility, and is architected for a wide range of WAN and LAN use cases.
  • Advanced Wi-Fi: The Intel® Home Wi-Fi Chipset WAV600 series is a portfolio of Wi-Fi 6 solutions. It includes a 4x4 160 MHz configuration that is designed for both fast and consistent Wi-Fi connectivity, supports Gigabit Wi-Fi, and provides the ability to connect up to 256 clients simultaneously. The Wi-Fi chipsets are optimized for the Intel® Puma™ 7 SoC to fully offload the wireless traffic with zero CPU utilization, freeing up the CPU performance for advanced services.
  • 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet: The Intel® Ethernet Connection GPY211 and GPY212 are cost-effective, low-power Ethernet PHYs that are optimized for Intel’s 2.5G Ethernet solutions for PCs and provide great interoperability for the IEEE 802.3bz standard. The GPY212 also supports Media Access Control Security (MACsec).
