NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- January 8, 2013

Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of
semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today
announced that it has fully integrated DPI technology from Lionic Corporation
in its latest Comcerto 2000 communication processor family. This DPI
technology enables advanced and versatile capabilities including real-time
anti-virus scanning, application-dependent QoS, advanced parental controls,
keyword filtering and URL filtering.

Mindspeed will host a live demonstration of DPI solutions for broadband
operators, communications original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), press and
analysts in meeting room MP25371 in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention
Center at the 2013 International CES from January 8-11, 2013 at the Las Vegas
Convention Center.

"By integrating Lionic’s Layer-7 DPI engine with Mindspeed®’s next generation
communications processor we have opened up a new range of potential
applications,” said Eric Lu, chief executive officer at Lionic. "The
combination of Mindspeed’s expertise in communications processors with
Lionic’s turnkey security offering has produced a breakthrough in security
price-performance, enabling the Comcerto 2000 to provide outstanding
performance in gateway-based antivirus solutions, intrusion prevention systems
(IPS), application-level policy enforcement and content management and other
security tasks.”

“Security is becoming an increasingly important element in routers and access
points, especially as broadband service providers expand their offerings
within the digital home and small office markets,” said Marco E. Bello,
executive director of marketing and product management for the communications
convergence processing (CCP) business unit at Mindspeed. “With our latest
communications processor family, we are addressing a wide range of security
applications which all benefit from the performance and cost-effectiveness of
our Comcerto 2000 product and the addition of Lionic’s embedded

"ARM understands that as the number of connected devices in the home and
office continues to rise, families and businesses need communications
technology to evolve and safeguard their online lives,” said Ian Drew,
executive vice president, Marketing and Business Development, ARM. “We are
therefore pleased that Mindspeed and Lionic are collaborating to integrate
this DPI technology. It will help to deliver secure digital experiences and
has the potential to enable new applications and opportunities for Mindspeed

With advanced DPI functionality now part of Mindspeed’s Open Packet
Acceleration Logic (OPAL™) wire-speed data-path acceleration technology and
the Comcerto 2000’s powerful dual 1.2GHz ARM Cortex A9, the carrier-class
solution is ideally suited to many compelling new product classes found in
broadband-enabled residences and small-to-medium business (SMB) settings:

  *Enterprise-class DPI for residential and SMB devices
  *Advanced parental control for telco-managed gateways
  *Application-based quality of service for 802.11ac enterprise access points
  *Leading edge anti-virus, intrusion detection and intrusion prevention
  *Bundled security and content management for improved quality of experience

Mindspeed’s Comcerto 2000 processors use intelligent offloading to run
wire-rate Gigabit-per-second IPv6 NAT and firewall applications while keeping
their 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processors fully available for executing
value-added applications from OEMs or service providers.

NOTE: Lionic Corporation will host a live demonstration of DPI technology
featuring Mindspeed's Comcerto 2000 processor in booth 257 at the 2013 RSA
Conference from February 26-28, 2013 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco,

About Mindspeed's Comcerto 2000 Family of Communications Processors

Mindspeed introduced the Comcerto 2000 multi-core ARM Cortex-A CPU-based
communications processors in June 2012. Bringing software defined networking
(SDN) to the edge of the network, the processors enable a new generation of
products for switching, routing, security, multi-service gateways, enterprise
class wireless access points and controllers, network attached storage and
VoIP applications for residential, enterprise and networking equipment for
small and medium businesses. The processor family is ideally suited for either
control processors or for mixed control and data plane applications.

They can be used in a variety of secure systems, including security gateways
or converged broadband home routers (BHRs) and set-top box (STB) media
gateways that require digital rights management (DRM) support. The devices are
backward-compatible with the wide range of carrier-proven software that has
been developed for Comcerto 100 and 1000 communications processors, enabling
manufacturers to rapidly develop a family of products for different
price-performance points.

The first devices in the series feature dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore™
processors with symmetric multi-processing (SMP), coherent level two cache and
ARM TrustZone® security which enables a new class of cost-effective products
that support new protocols and higher speeds with lower power consumption.
Silicon, carrier-grade software and Linux software design kits (SDK) are
sampling now.
