The exhibition HKTDC Hong Kong company Rockchip has demonstrated one of the first fruits of their previously announced collaboration with Intel in the form of a single-chip platform designed for low-cost smartphones and tablet computers.
The new development, called XMM 6321 integrates XG632 processor with two cores ARM Cortex-A5 and communication module AG620, promising support for cellular networks, the second and third-generation wireless technology Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.
Thus, smartphones and tablets on the basis of this single-chip platform will be able to operate on GSM networks and perform basic tasks and functions, but at the same time, the cost is projected at $ 30 to $ 40 or slightly more.
Such gadgets for obvious reasons particularly in demand in India and other developing countries, however, exactly when we will see the market units based XMM 6321 is still unclear. Also mentioned plans Rockchip and Intel to jointly develop a 64-bit processor and SoC with support for LTE, is also designed for low-cost devices.
