Samsung has introduced that the corporate has began mass production of the business’s first 14-nanometer FinFET software processor designed in particular for the wearables marketplace. The twin center processor is referred to as the Exynos 7 Twin 7270, and springs full of an built-in LTE modem for wi-fi connectivity.
The Exynos 7270 is made from two low energy Cortex-A53 cores, a Class 4 LTE 2CA modem, at the side of built-in radio, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. Samsung states that construction the chip at 14nm lets in for a 20 % development in energy potency over an similar chip constructed on 28nm.
Samsung is construction the Exynos 7270 the use of its sublime SiP-ePoP packaging, which permits the corporate to successfully mix energy control, DRAM and NAND flash reminiscence parts right into a unmarried stacked package deal. Now not most effective does this keep on area, with peak falling via roughly 30 % when compared with its predecessor, however it’s additionally extra energy environment friendly.
Samsung hasn’t said while the chip is more likely to seem in any merchandise, however new low-energy smartwatches and health bands are the most probably target audience. To expedite construction, Samsung has launched a reference construction platform that accommodates the processor, NFC chip, and different essential sensory parts present in wearable units, that is instantly to be had for tool producers and builders.
