Fuji Xerox Selects Marvell Discovery Family of System Controllers for World's Fastest Desktop DocuPrint C3530 Color Laser Printer

11/5/2002 - Marvell®, a technology leader in the development of extreme broadband communications solutions, announced that Fuji Xerox® has selected the Marvell Discovery family of system controllers for its recently launched DocuPrint C3530, the world's fastest desktop color laser printer. Fuji Xerox chose the Marvell Discovery GT-64261A system controller based on high performance and integration as well as its ability to move vast amounts of data quickly. Powered by the Marvell Discovery system controller, the DocuPrint color laser printer provides exceptional performance and high image resolution, ultimately increasing end-user print productivity and versatility for generating color documents.

"The DocuPrint C3530 demanded a controller that could move large amounts of data in the shortest period of time in order to deliver superior performance to our customers," stated Harunobu Kinoshita, Fuji Xerox General Manager of the Controller Device and Software Development Managing Unit. "The Marvell Discovery GT-64261A system controller, with its advanced architecture and performance-tuned interfaces, attained the output level necessary to produce a thirty-five page-per-minute color laser printer."

The Discovery Family of System Controllers
Since its initial launch in December 2000, the Discovery family of system controllers has established market leadership with multiple design wins in a variety of embedded applications including router, printer and storage solutions. The Discovery system controller combines advanced, high-performance architecture to deliver unmatched performance for next-generation applications like Fuji Xerox's high-performance, multi-functional printer. Multiple tier one vendors have all benefited from the Discovery family's ability to operate at demanding processing speeds, a mission critical attribute in today's market. Providing over 100 Gbps of aggregate throughput (up to a 16x improvement over traditional system controllers), the Discovery device's architecture supports non-blocking concurrent connections among peripherals at full bus speeds. The Discovery GT-64261A device is a full-feature system controller that combines high performance system and communications peripherals on a single chip. In addition, the Discovery GT-64261A device includes a 72-bit SDRAM memory controller, interrupt controllers, two 10/100 Mbps Ethernet controllers, two multi-protocol serial channels, and dual 66 MHz PCI 2.2 bus interfaces.

Fuji Xerox DocuPrint C3530 Printers
The DocuPrint C3530 is a desktop color laser printer that produces the highest quality prints at the world's fastest print speed (thirty-five pages-per-minute (ppm) in color as well as black and white). The DocuPrint C3530 achieves its speed by incorporating an upgraded micro-tandem laser engine, utilizing an advanced CPU sub-system comprised of a 600 MHz PowerPC® G4 processor and the Marvell Discovery GT-64261A. system controller. The C3530 produces natural luster, higher image quality and increases the versatility of color documents enabling document annotation. It offers the fastest warm-up time in its class of printers, energy saving features and secure printing.
