Chip-Codename

Chip-Details

Falcon Mountain is the codename for the PRX300 family of SoCs for Optical Networking Units (ONUs)[1].

Early development dates back to Lantiq times, that's why they are MIPS based like the Seale GRX network SoCs.
Although Intel acquired all they did not add an Intel CPU like they did with the Puma6. Likely they were short in time.

After Intel sold all to Maxlinear they removed the product page (archived). Now MaxLinear has a product page.

The CPU has 4 logical cores (dual core with hyperthreading each) but only 3 cores are used for the main PRX Linux.
The 4th logical core is used for the boot Linux, also called MPE firmware. Excerpt from the 5590 PRX main boot log:

[    0.075686] avm_register_cpuid: cpu_id=0: LINUX core=0 tc=0
[    0.081292] avm_register_cpuid: cpu_id=1: LINUX core=0 tc=1
[    0.086887] avm_register_cpuid: cpu_id=2: LINUX core=1 tc=0
[    0.092527] avm_register_cpuid: cpu_id=3: MPEFW core=1 tc=1
...
[    0.249137] Primary instruction cache 32kB, VIPT, 4-way, linesize 32 bytes.
[    0.249144] Primary data cache 32kB, 4-way, PIPT, no aliases, linesize 32 bytes
[    0.249155] MIPS secondary cache 256kB, 8-way, linesize 32 bytes.
[    0.249160] avm_check_scache_features: mips-options: 0x000088c40e6d638b
[    0.249312] CPU2 revision is: 0001a120 (MIPS interAptiv (multi))
[    0.281008] Brought up 3 CPUs

The boot Linux is very minimalistic, it consists of busybox, supervisor and the FIT-Image tools bootslotctl and annexctl,
and their libraries libbootslotctl.so and libannexctl.so. The only external module is cpunet.ko for Inter-CPU communication.
Besides this it is prepared for trustedd by having libminneapolis.so installed.

The boot Linux is mostly idling, that's why the main Linux looses nearly no CPU horsepower to it.
Thanks to hyperthreading all idled power goes back to the 3rd core, which turns the strongest one in the team.
