By Telecom Lead: Rockchip, a Chinese fabless semiconductor company and mobile Internet System-on-Chip (SoC) solution provider, has launched its next generation RK30xx platform.The new platform targets the mass market, cost-effective Android tablets. The platform is based on wide range of ARM Intellectual Property that Rockchip has licensed, including dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processors, ARM quad-core Mali-400 MP Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and an ARM Artisan Physical IP Process Optimization Pack (POP) for the Cortex-A9 processor.
The company said that the solution is ideal for customers to quickly adopt for their Android-based tablet devices. The combination of the ARM Cortex-A9 processor and the POP has enabled the highest performance with the lowest power in the fastest time possible.
The RK30xx platform is a turnkey solution that reduces design complexity and enables faster time-to-market for Android tablet manufacturers, enabling them to address the fast changing consumer demands.
"The tablet market is growing rapidly, and putting greater demands on semiconductor companies to deliver cost-effective solutions that can sustain an ever-increasing level of graphics, video and gaming performance, while still being energy-efficient," said Feng Chen, chief marketing officer, Rockchip.
"ARM is committed to providing advanced processor, GPU and physical IP technologies to our Partners. This enables them to innovate for complex, smart system applications, such as mobile Internet," said Mike Inglis, executive vice president and general manager, processor division, ARM.
The Rockchip RK30xx platform features a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with up to 1.4GHz speed, implemented with Artisan Processor Optimization Pack (POP).
It is based upon a Quad-core ARM Mali-400 MP GPU, supporting OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0 and OpenVG 1.1.
The platform features 1080P multi-format video decoder and 1080P video encoding for H.264 and vp8.Furthermore, it has an embedded HDMI 1.4a, supporting 3D display along with embedded 60bit/s ECC, supporting MLC NAND, E-MMC, i-NAND and booting.
