SiS55x LV: New low-power systems-on-chips
Today SiS officially announced two new SoCs (System-on-Chip) of SiS55x LV family for low-power tablets as well as E-books, Web-pads and Pocket PCs. In SiS550 LV and SiS552 LV markings LV stands for lower voltage that provides up to 55% energy saving along with 25% performance boost comparing to the previous generation.
SiS55x LV is chip that combines 250MHz x86/MMX core, North/Southbridge, GUI hardware engine, DRAM controller, Ultra-AGP VGA, DFP/TV out, soft-modem, CIR, TFT/DSTN, PCI/USB/IDE 5.1 audio, LPT, Flash ROM, etc.
Unlike SiS550 LV, SiS552LV has more audio/video features, including smartcard reader controller, Sony Memory Stick slot controller, DVD encoder, video-in, etc. All of these make it a good platform for smart displays, digital VCRs, home theaters, etc.
Both chips operate under Linux and Windows and are naturally pin-compatible with SiS55x generation.
