MIPS Technologies and China-based Ingenic Semiconductor introduced the JZ4780, a new highly integrated MIPS-Based SoC. The affordable, dual-core solution offers high performance, advanced graphics and other new functionality, along with ultra-low power consumption.
Here are the JZ4780 SoC highlights:
- 1.3GHz+ SoC sets new performance point for power-efficient and affordable devices
- Ingenic’s MIPS-Based XBurst processor, with an innovative high-performance and ultra-low power pipelining architecture that consumes approximately 140mW per GHz under full load
- Features a video processing unit (VPU) powered by a second XBurst processing engine for advanced 1080p HD video performance
- Highly-integrated SoC includes HDMI, LVDS, audio codec, GPS baseband, and other analog/application blocks and rich interconnect interfaces plus sophisticated PowerVR SGX Series5 graphics IP from Imagination Technologies
Unsurprisingly, the two companies will be showing off the JZ4780 at CES, using a new 10-inch Android 4.1 Jelly Bean tablet as a demo device. We may check it out if we find time (cause we have so much to cover)…
