Broadcom introduces three new core ARM chips for smartphones
Maybe away from the capabilities of modern mobile processors, broadcom has announced the arrival of three chips arm A9 based segment targeting the most basic smartphones: BCM21654G models, BCM28145/155 BCM21664T and optimized for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
Behind these names unfriendly hides Broadcom idea of bringing these processors to smartphone makers who do not want or can design and develop their own models. The first of these includes a 1GHz processor mononucleosis, which can display up to 720p video, while the other two are dual core at 1.2 GHz and its multimedia capabilities reach 1080p video. Connectivity is no slouch in the three different models, with HSPA +, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC.
In Broadcom have the idea of integrating some features in cheaper equipment that were previously reserved for higher-level models, such as the same performance when playing media or NFC. “This will enable OEMs to develop some competitive smartphones in three months or less, and thus reach a new generation of users in emerging markets,” said Rafael Sotomayor, vice president of mobile platform solutions from Broadcom.
Mass production of these new chips will start during this month and is expected to start soon appear cheaper smartphones.arm, broadcom, chips, cortex a9, smartphones, soc
