ARM Readies Cortex-A72 and Mali-T880 for Mobile Devices

ARM has just announced a series of solutions for the upcoming next-generation mobile SoC. The most notable developments are Cortex-A72 processor and Mali-T880 graphics. According to the manufacturer, both components will be interconnected within SoC by means of CoreLink – CCI-500. The launch of new items is scheduled for 2016. Rockchip, MediaTek and HiSilicon are among the companies to integrate both elaborations into their products.

It should be noted that Cortex- A72 is a successor of Cortex-A57, taking analogous 64-bit operations but demonstrating three times higher performance. The new-comer will be designed under 16 nm FinFET+ technological process. Its layout corresponds to big.LITTLE framework requirements; this promotes for its combination with other ARM cores.

As far as Mali-T880 GPU is concerned, it provides for 1.8 response time increase if compared with the Mali-T760 model. Herewith, its power consumption is reduced by 40%. Moreover, this GPU might support 4K …

Power Supply SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution 750

The range of power supply consists of five series with different positioning. The top series Strider Gold Evolution presents four models ranging from 750 to 1200 watts. Power Supply SilverStone Strider Gold Evolution 750 comes in a cardboard outer box with a glossy print, made with a predominance of black and gold colors. Power supply enclosure has matte texture and looks quite stylish, but without too much glitz and tinsel, that pleases.

All parameters are specified on the body the power supply in full. +12 VDC power bus is declared in the amount of 744 W. This value is between the corresponding values of standard power supplies 750 and 800 W, the ratio of the power bus +12 VDC and full power is 0.992. This model can be completely off the wires. Such solution may add some convenience in assembling the system. The number of connectors and their placement on the wiring harness is optimal, at least very close to that of today for the power supply of such power. Of course, it would …

System on Module Sauris AM3517/05 Sales Start

The official website of Sauris company is dazzled by the information about the sales start of the systems on modules AM3517/05. The new systems are based on high-performance microprocessors TI Sitara AM3517 or AM3505 developed in the SODIMM-204 form-factor. System designers have extended the data bus to 16 bit and connected it with the flash-memory chip. The extension of data bus allowed for the acceleration of the OS loading. In addition, the systems are equipped with a new keyboard controller that enables the connection of up to 80 keys; the integration of such solution permitted the designers to refuse from the additional elements of keyboard protection from electrostatic restrictions.

The module configuration includes memory of EEPROM type in 64 KB volume capacity, SDRAM DDR2-166 memory in 256 MB capacity, and flash-memory of NAND type in 256 MB capacity. The interface list boasts a number of facilities including Ethernet 10/100 Mb/sec, CAN 2.0b, USBx2, LVDS, McSPI, McBSP, …
