Philips Announces New Trimedia CPU Optimized for Mobile Media Processing Applications
Royal Philips Electronics today introduced a new TriMedia CPU to be used in a wide range of Philips' Nexperia media processing solutions. Philips says its new TM3270 TriMedia CPU combines the performance needed for processing the latest audio/video formats with extremely low power operation.
The TM3270 TriMedia CPU is a fully synthesizable design allowing easy integration into Nexperia SOC (System on Chip) designs. Utilizing new, patented instructions for H.264 video processing and voltage-scaling capabilities, it is able to decode full D1-resolution H.264 video with CABAC while consuming under 100mW typical power consumption. It supports the encoding and decoding of all leading audio and video formats including H.264, MPEG-1/2/4, Windows Media 9 and DivX. Support for programmable image-enhancement optimizes video quality for sharpness and clarity on next generation displays. The CPU is fully C-programmable, maintaining backward compatibility with previous TriMedia CPUs, and ensuring compatibility with future evolving standards.
The TM3270 CPU is available now in low-power 0.09-Micron CMOS process. The first Nexperia SOC solutions containing the new TriMedia CPU will be announced in the first half of 2006.
