Samsung has announced the launch of its new wearable processor, the Samsung Exynos 7 Dual 7270 processor which has now entered mass production.
The Samsung Exynos 7 Dual 7270 is designed for wearable devices with 14-nanometer (nm) FinFET process technology and it comes with full connectivity and an LTE modem built in.
“The Exynos 7270 presents a new paradigm for system-on-chips (SoC) dedicated to wearables,” said Ben K. Hur, Vice President of System LSI Marketing at Samsung Electronics. “Designed on our state-of-the-art process technology, this AP offers great power savings, 4G LTE modem and full connectivity solution integration, as well as innovative packaging technology optimized for wearable devices. It is a ground-breaking solution that will greatly accelerate wider adoption of wearable devices by overcoming limitations in current solutions such as energy usage and design flexibility.”
Powered by two Cortex®-A53 cores, the Exynos 7270 makes full use of the 14nm process, delivering 20 percent improvement in power efficiency when compared to its predecessor built on 28nm, and thus notably extending the battery life. By integrating Cat.4 LTE 2CA modem, the new AP allows wearables to connect to a cellular service as a stand-alone device. Tethering and data transfer between devices is also possible with its embedded WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. In addition, integrated connectivity capabilities support FM (frequency modulation) radio, and location-based services with GNSS (global navigation satellite system) solutions.
