Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced the S3C2440, reportedly the world's fastest mobile CPU, with a core speed of 533 MHz. According to the company, the new mobile CPU will drive the emergence of new services, functions, and multimedia content for mobile handheld devices such as PDAs and smartphones.

"The increasing popularity of mobile applications is driving the demand for high-performance, low-power mobile processors," said vice president Yun-tae Lee of the Mobile Design Project Team at SOC R&D Center, Samsung Electronics. "Samsung developed its newest 533-MHz processor using its unique high-speed process and low-power design technology in conjunction with an optimized power management methodology for high-performance operation from a minimal power source."

According to the company, the S3C2440 enables value-added end-user features such as camera interface, TFT and STN LCD display support, SD/MMC/SDIO, USB host and device, and touch screen interface. By providing a comprehensive set of common system peripherals, the mobile CPU reportedly reduces overall system costs and eliminates the need to configure additional components. The S3C2440 CPU supports major operating systems including Microsoft Windows CE, Palm OS, Symbian, and Linux. The device also offers the advantages of a built-in NAND flash boot loader so that high-density NAND flash memory can be used without having to install an additional support chip. The mobile CPU features an ARM920T core, a 16/32-bit RISC microprocessor for high performance in a small form-factor, and a low core voltage of 1.3 V. In addition, it is developed using 0.13 um CMOS standard cell and a memory compiler and adopts Advanced Microcontroller Bus Architecture (AMBA). The high-speed, low-power mobile S3C2440 CPU is sampling now in 533-MHz, 400-MHz, and 300-MHz versions, and will be in mass production from Q4 2003, said the company.
