Cavium is a fabless semiconductor company based in San Jose, California specializing in ARM-based and MIPS-based network, video and security processors and SoCs. Cavium offers processor and board level products targeting routers, switches, appliances, storage and servers.

The company went public in May 2007 with about 175 employees. As of 2011, following numerous acquisitions, it had about 850 employees worldwide, of whom about 250 were located at company headquarters in San Jose.

The cnMIPS microarchitecture implements the MIPS64 instruction set.

The ThunderX line of SoCs from Cavium were released with up to 48 dual issue, out of order ARMv8 cores. These SoCs were targeted at servers in network intensive applications, competing with Intel Xeon products. The ThunderX line is manufactured by Global Foundries at 28nm and is reported to have a TDP less than 100W.

Cavium announced in 2016 the ThunderX2 line of SoCs, an iterative improvement of their ThunderX line. ThunderX2 has up to 54 custom ARM cores and is manufactured on Global Foundries' 14nm FinFET process. These and other improvements are reported to offer twice the performance per core of the ThunderX line.

Cray has added "ARM Option" (i.e. CPU blade option, using the ThunderX2) to their XC50 supercomputers, and Cray claims that ARM is "a third processor architecture for building next-generation supercomputers", for e.g. the US Department of Energy.

On June 17, 2011 Cavium Networks, Inc. changed their name to Cavium, Inc.
