The MagusCore SSD1935 multimedia processor from Solomon Systech includes stacked double-data-rate (DDR) memory on chip, reducing the cost of a portable multimedia device by 30%, according to the company. It also reduces the size and number of printed-circuit board (PCB) layers down to four. With its 0.8-mm pitch and thin and fine-pitch ball-grid array (TFBGA) package, PCB assembly will be easier, Solomon says. Its Linux development platform is flexible for adding in peripherals and other features.
The MagusCore processor family is designed to meet the growing demand for portable devices that deliver high-quality audio and video at an affordable price. The devices in the line support a wide range of popular video codecs such as H.264, MPEG4, MPEG2, and RMVB up to D1 resolution. A comprehensive portable multimedia player reference design supporting digital TV standards like CMMB with Conditional Access and DVB-T/H is available.
A ready-for-production schematic, layout, and mechanical drawing will be provided to customers as a total solution to shorten the end product development cycle time. Contact the company for pricing.
