By CBR Staff Writer

Marvell, a provider of integrated silicon offerings, has unveiled new Armada 618 application processor that offers a CPU core with PC-class performance, integrated 1080p full-HD encode and decode for HD-capable smartphones.

The company said that the Armada 618 is based on a Marvell-designed ARM v7 compatible CPU offering gigahertz-class performance in a 12mm x 12mm package. It offers the flexibility to use LP-DDR1 or LP-DDR2 memory up to 533MHz, a display controller capable of four simultaneous displays at up to 2K x 2K resolution, and a security subsystem that includes an execution processor.

In addition, it features a 3D graphics engine that supports DirectX, Open GL ES 2.0, and Open VG 1.1, rendering up to 45 million triangles per second with a complete floating point pipeline and unified vertex and fragment/pixel shading. It supports Linux, Android, Windows Mobile, and Adobe Flash, the company said.

Weili Dai, co-founder of Marvell, said: Featuring a gigahertz CPU, 1080p full-HD video, 3D graphics, the industry’s fastest LP-DDR, and optimised power for longer battery life, Marvell’s Armada 618 application processor represents a dramatic leap forward in high-end, multimedia smartphones.

“Importantly, the Armada 600 series of application processors gives our customers a common platform solution to build multiple products and formats for the always-on consumer – scaling from smartphones to eReaders to tablets without compromising either the multimedia performance or the battery life.
