Samsung develops industry's first SiP; stacking processor with NAND flash and SDRAM.
"The integration of data, voice and video in smartphones and PDA's requires higher performance, longer battery life, and increasing memory density in a sleek package," said Dr. Hyung Lae Roh, executive vice president, SOC R&D Center, Samsung Electronics. "Our SiP solution offers the world's first combination of an application processor with NAND flash, which will be the leading non-volatile storage solution for next-generation handhelds."
The SiP's small form factor, 17x17mm in size and 1.4mm high, integrates Samsung's S3C2410 ARM-based application processor, 256Mb of NAND flash memory and 256Mb of SDRAM memory. The S3C2410 is the world's first System-on-Chip (SOC) to have a NAND flash boot loader.
The S3C2410 features an ARM920T CPU core operating at 203 MHz. The chip supports major operating systems including Microsoft Windows CE, Palm OS, Symbian, and Linux.
The S3C2410 SOC offers a set of tailored peripherals for smartphones and other handheld devices that allows integrated support of features that consumers will find attractive and convenient. For example, the S3C2410 application processor includes USB host and device support to allow connectivity to a variety of other devices including PCs, printers, removable storage, and other handhelds. The processor also has SDIO support, which allows handhelds to be accessorized with upcoming SDIO protocol devices such as digital cameras, keyboards, etc.
