    ARM wins web-TV design-in with Panasonic

    ARM processors have been designed into Panasonic’s recently launched UniPhier MN2WS0220 SoC for Internet Connected Digital TV applications.

    An important design win in the consumer market for the Cambridge-based processor firm, Panasonic has integrated 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.

    We are delighted that the long-term relationship between ARM and Panasonic on processor cores and implementation optimization has resulted in leading devices, such as the UniPhier MN2WS0220 SoC,” said Tudor Brown, president, ARM. 

    “Our work developing future generations of SoCs with Panasonic Corporation for use in smart TV applications is an exciting prospect," added Brown.

    Providing the video and audio processing for smart TVs, the 45nm device supports full HD resolution at reduced power consumption.

    The UniPhier device’s architectures enables parallel, simultaneous operation of the TV signal processing and the dual-core CPU’s handling of open-source applications software.

    "Future generations of UniPhier SoCs using ARM technology will offer even more to our customers and, ultimately, consumers," Said Yoshifumi Okamoto, director of corporate system LSI division at Panasonic
