MIPS Technologies (News - Alert) Inc., in association with Ingenic Semiconductor, has unveiled the JZ4780, an extremely incorporated MIPS-based SoC. Some of the latest features showcased by the economically viable dual-core JZ4780 include exceptional performance and superior graphics, among others.
The JZ4780 will be showcased by MIPS and Ingenic in a new 10" Android 4.1 'Jelly Bean' tablet at International CES (News - Alert), scheduled for January 8-12, 2013.
The JZ4780 SoC, with a speed of more than 1.3GHz, positions fresh performance point for power-resourceful and reasonable devices. Ingenic's MIPS-based XBurst processor is advantageously utilized by the SoC, offering a groundbreaking high performance and extremely low-power pipelining architecture.
Consumer electronics products are now provided an affordable offering by the JZ4780, with its nearly 30-square-mm die size in 40nm.
In a statement, Gideon Intrater, VP of Marketing, MIPS Technologies said, "We congratulate Ingenic on its latest accomplishment with the highly competitive JZ4780. Its combination of high performance, power efficiency and cost-effective design demonstrates the advantages of the MIPS architecture for mobile devices such as tablets. Now that the MIPS architecture is completely supported in Android releases from Google (News - Alert), Android devices based on MIPS can take advantage of a broad range of applications, while leveraging the long battery life and great user experience that MIPS can enable."
The SoC incorporates a video processing unit powered by a second XBurst processing engine, ensuring superior 1080p HD video performance. HDMI, LVDS, audio codec, GPS baseband, and other analog/application blocks are also incorporated into the SoC.
Qiang Liu, Chairman and CEO, Ingenic Semiconductor said, "Combining the elegance of the MIPS architecture with Ingenic's processor design expertise, we were able to create a device that sets a new performance point for cost- and power-efficient consumer product SoCs. We have seen significant adoption of the previous generation JZ4770 SoC, and our customers are excited to tap the performance and functionality of this new SoC for their next generation tablets and other consumer electronics products."
According to Tony King-Smith, VP of Marketing at Imagination Technologies (News - Alert), an engaging experience on tablets and other consumer devices will be possible as the latest MIPS-Based SoC advantageously utilizes Imagination's sophisticated graphics IP.
