Spreadtrum Communications has unveiled two new quad-core SoC platforms – one supporting 5-mode LTE and the second supporting WCDMA.
The SC9830A supports 5-mode LTE, while the SC7731G supports WCDMA. Both are designed with 28nm process technology.
Smartphones makers for both China and global markets have started utilizing SC9830A and SC7731G chips for their recent launches.
“Our 5-mode integrated LTE SoC enables our customers to design products with advanced features, addressing the growing demand for LTE mobile devices. This platform coupled with semiconductor process technology delivers a cost-effective solution for LTE mobile devices,” said Leo Li, chairman and CEO of Spreadtrum.
Spreadtrum said the SC9830A integrates a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 application processor at speeds up to 1.5GHz and supports TD-LTE, LTE FDD, TD-SCDMA/HSPA(+), WCDMA/HSPA (+) and GSM/GPRS/EDGE multimode communication standards with dual-SIM dual-standby capability.
The chip integrates a dual-core ARM Mali 400MP for 2D/3D graphics acceleration and a NEON multimedia processing engine and multi-standard multimedia accelerators, supporting 1080p HD video and a 13 megapixel camera.
The SC7713G integrates a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 application processor at speeds up to 1.3GHz and supports WCDMA/HSPA (+) and dual GSM/GPRS/EDGE communication standards with dual-SIM dual-standby capability, 1080p HD video and an 8 megapixel camera.
Both solutions integrate with Spreadtrum’s Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/GPS/FM connectivity chip, support Android 5.X and are offered as a turnkey platform which includes Spreadtrum’s customizable user interface, applications and options.
