NEC Electronics has announced the availability of new systems-on-chip (SoCs) in the EMMA Mobile series. EMMA Mobile/EV is capable of processing high-definition (HD) content and 3D graphics.
As part of its core business, NEC Electronics has been actively expanding its portable device lineup.
The new EMMA Mobile/EV SoCs, optimized for the portable device market including portable multimedia players and mobile tablets, integrate ARM’s high-end Cortex-A9 CPU core and a high-performance HD-capable audio-visual (A/V) engine for decoding a multitude of digital video and audio formats.
The new EMMA Mobile/EV SoCs offer the following features:
- Through a dedicated A/V engine, EMMA Mobile/EV can decode H.264, MPEG2, MPEG4, VC-1 content up to full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) on portable devices.
- Integrates a high-performance 3D graphics core from Imagination Technologies, realizing 3D processing at 14.7 megapolygons per second and pixel-filtrate performance of 500 megapixels per second sustained under realistic operating conditions.
- Incorporate various technologies such as automatic clock control, on-chip power switch and quick recovery to reduce power consumption by up to 30 percent compared to EMMA Mobile 1.
NEC Electronics will exhibit EMMA Mobile EV chips at the Mobile World Congress 2010 to be held in Barcelona, Spain, February 15-18.
