Samsung S5L2010 media processors
Working closely with OEM and ODM customers to develop the performance requirements for entry to mid-tier DPFs, Samsung’s new S5L2010 media processors include powerful hardware accelerators for computation- intensive tasks. For example, performance tests show that Samsung’s S5L2010 processors are able to decode 57 megapixel JPEG images in just one second, which is significantly faster than any other competitive product on the market. In addition, DPFs that incorporate Samsung’s new S5L2010 processors have the capability to quickly and efficiently decode video and audio in a variety of multimedia formats including MPEG-1/2/4, Xvid, Motion JPEG, MP3, WMA, OGG and AAC.

These new media processors also integrate additional features including an ADC for touch screen control, SLC/ MLC NAND booting, built-in RTC, a LED PWM driver for the LCD backlight, an audio PWM 2 channel output, TV-Out, and DVB-T interface, which reduces bill-of-material costs. The S5L2010 media processor is housed in a quad flat package.

New Media Processor
Manufactured using 65 nanometer CMOS process technology and built on an ARM9 core, Samsung’s new S5L2010 media processors are highly integrated, featuring an SoC chip with a display controller that can support either analog or digital LCDs up to XGA resolution. Other features include an advanced memory interface for embedded memory and all major memory card formats including SD/MMC/SM/MS/CF/xD, advanced graphics capabilities, USB 2.0 OTG, infrared input and real-time operating system support. Samsung’s S5L2010 media processor is sampling now and will be in mass production in the first quarter of 2009.
