ARM Mali 200 powered new embedded processor from ST crunch video data smoothly

STMicroelectronics has added new embedded processor to its dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 microprocessor family, the SPEAr1340 designed for apps such as smart connected devices, from high-resolution video-conferencing to intelligent displays and web-connected devices.

ST's SPEAr1340 integrates a powerful ARM Mali 200 graphics processing unit for advanced 2D and 3D acceleration in user interfaces, navigation systems, browsing, and gaming. The new device also embeds a hardware video encoder and a decoder supporting major compression standards (including H.264, AVS and VP8), with video resolution up to 1080p and 30 frames per second. The SPEAr1340 can also handle multiple concurrent video flows (4 camera inputs available) in multimedia-intensive applications like surveillance video cameras.

The graphics and video processing in the SPEAr1340 consumes low power while maintaining the two Cortex-A9 cores available for performing concurrent tasks as requested by the users. With its multiple interfaces, including I2S and S/PDIF, the SPEAr1340 also provides high quality audio capabilities, handling up to 7.1 surround-sound configurations in both input and output paths.

In security, the SPEAr1340 integrates a multi-standard cryptographic engine and One Time Programmable (OTP) registers for unique identification and external flash memory anti-tamper protection.

"The SPEAr1340 represents the leading edge of the embedded microprocessor market," said Loris Valenti, General Manager of STMicroelectronics' Computer Systems Division. "
