Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., a world leader in advanced semiconductor alternatives, these days presented the sector's first quad-core application processor built on the High-k Metal Checkpoint (HKMG) low-power procedure technological innovation. With unmatched performance capabilities beyond 1.4GHz with regards to the ARM® CORTEXTM A9 quad-core, the highly effective, yet energy-efficient Exynos 4 Quad, allows system-level designers to incorporate increased power productivity into smartphones and pills which enables double the handling power at a 20 % lower power bill over its forerunner, the 45nm process-based Exynos 4 Combined.
"The quad-core processor provides incredible multi-tasking capabilities beyond any individual or dual application processor. Since all the cores must share 1 battery power, the power control and performance in the limited battery power capacity are fundamental for traveling with a laptop Electronics," said Taehoon Kim, v. p. of Program LSI marketing, Program Solutions, New samsung Electronics. "Given the different capabilities customers are strenuous from their cellular phones these days, the Exynos 4 Quad satisfies those high-performance needs while keeping power intake very low."
Multi-core handling provides improved performance, empowering customers to accomplish more projects in a reduced time of time. For example, a task such as loading movie can run on one primary while the other cores upgrade programs in the background, linking to the web and checking virus-check at the same time.
Benefitting from a use case where the similar handling and amount of work giving among the four cores is necessary, the Exynos 4 Quad is particularly well-suited for heavy-load programs such as 3D games, movie modifying, and calculation-intensive simulator.
Due to its 32nm HKMG low-power procedure and power-saving style, the Exynos 4 Quad has two times the handling capability over the 45nm procedure centered Exynos 4 Combined while consuming 20-percent less power. To improve performance, New samsung implemented hot-plug performance to support on-off transferring for each primary as well as the per-core highly effective current and regularity climbing (DVFS), which provides a extraordinary reduction in power intake by adjusting different levels of current and regularity when changing workloads.
Having identical form factor dimensions (12mm X 12mm X 1.37 mm), the Exynos 4 Quad is pin-to-pin appropriate with the 32nm procedure centered Exynos 4 Combined, allowing cellular phone designers to instantly embrace the new solution without additional cost, technological innovation or style initiatives.
In addition, the new processor carries a full HD 30 shape per second movie components codec engine for top quality 1080p videos and play-back, an included image indication processor user interface for high-quality camera performance and an HDMI 1.4 user interface for distinct and distinct multimedia system content indication.
Samsung developed a power control IC (PMIC), the S5M8767, as a associate processor to power the Exynos 4 Quad processor. By developing various build such as nine highly effective and automated money converters and 28 low-dropout authorities (LDOs) into the small package of 5.0 mm x 5.0mm x 0.4mm, the S5M8767 is developed to scale up or down the highly effective current with regards to time speed in 6.25mV phase for handling power shipping and increasing battery power at it stage.
Already in production, the Exynos 4 Quad is planned to be implemented first into Samsung's next Galaxy mobile phone that will basically be declared in May. Samsung's Exynos 4 Quad is also choosing to other major device makers.
"The application processor is a crucial element in providing our customers with a PC-like encounter on cellular phones. Samsung's next Galaxy device, which will be basically declared soon, provides uncompromised performance and innovative multi-tasking features, thanks to Exynos 4 Quad's highly effective performance and effective power control technological innovation," said Hankil Yoon, Mature Vice Chief executive of Item Strategy Team, Samsung's Mobile Devices Business.
Last year, New samsung presented a new online hub devoted to its Exynos processor. Created to assist in easy interaction with industry lovers and end customers, the new micro-site takes you a phase closer to the ultimate encounter Exynos delivers; product details, buyer and details on marketing events.
