ARM and Panasonic partner to develop UniPhier SoCs

ARM announced the use
of a wide range of ARM technology in Panasonic Corporation’s recently launched
UniPhier MN2WS0220 SoC for Internet Connected Digital TV



ARM technology used in the UniPhier MN2WS0220
high performance, low-power dual-core
ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processors running at up to 1.4GHz (typical conditions), ARM CoreLink NIC-301 Network
Interconnect and the ARM Cortex-A9 POP for Low Power (LP) process.



The two companies have been working in
partnership over a number of years, and will continue to partner on delivering
the next generation of market-leading UniPhier SoCs for Internet Connected
Digital TV devices.



Corporation aims to provide customers with exciting multimedia solutions that
combine high-quality audio and video with low power consumption, real-time
processing, and secure technology,” said Yoshifumi Okamoto, director of
Corporate System LSI Division, Semiconductor Company, Panasonic Corporation.



Working with ARM
allows us to deliver on the promise of an integrated platform that enables
ubiquitous networking and makes services easily accessible to consumers,
anytime and anywhere. Future generations of UniPhier SoCs using ARM technology
will offer even more to our customers and, ultimately, consumers,” Okamoto



Working with
Panasonic Corporation on leading designs for this type of smart device provides
consumers with the connected life that they now demand,” said Tudor Brown,
president, ARM. 



We are delighted
that the long-term relationship between ARM and Panasonic Corporation on processor
cores and implementation optimization has resulted in
leading devices, such as the
SoC. Our work developing future generations of SoCs with
Panasonic Corporation for use in smart TV applications is an exciting
prospect,” Brown added.
