Samsung Electronics Unveils New Products for Use in Smartphones and Tablets
Mar 7 14
Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. has unveiled two Exynos application processors, two CMOS image sensors, an NFC IC and a Wi-Fi chipset for use in smartphones and tablets. Samsung's new Exynos 5422, an advanced Exynos 5 Octa product for premium mobile devices, is designed to support the ever-increasing needs of high-resolution displays and complicated computation without sacrificing battery life. This new processor is equipped with eight cores-four big cores (ARM Cortex- A15 up to 2.1 GHz) for heavy loads and four small cores (ARM Cortex- A7 up to 1.5 GHz) for lighter jobs-that deliver up to 34% higher performance than in previous Exynos Octa models. Due to Samsung's further optimized big.LITTLE HMP (Heterogeneous Multi Processing) technology, any combination of up to eight cores is engineered to provide optimum performance for any given task. To support high-resolution displays requiring a higher rate of data calculation and bandwidth, such as WQHD (2560 x 1440) and WQXGA (2560 x 1600), Samsung has adopted new solutions with proprietary mobile image compression (MIC) and adaptive hibernation technology. With MIC, display data is compressed into half to minimize memory bandwidth requirement and uses only four MIPI lanes. To further reduce power requirements, an adaptive hibernation algorithm detects non-moving parts of dynamic images and freezes the data transfer. Both technologies are implemented in conjunction with Samsung's mobile display driver IC (S6E3HA0 for WQHD and S6E3FA2 for FHD respectively), and save power consumption by up to 10% compared with conventional technologies. Samsung's new Exynos 5422 also delivers an outstanding multimedia experience through advanced Multi Format Codec (MFC) that supports 4K UHD resolution. These multimedia enhancements enable users to enjoy life-like multimedia experience by creating and uploading richer mobile contents with greater ease. Exynos 5422 is developed using Samsung's advanced 28 nanometer (nm) fabrication process node and supports HMP feature, saving overall power consumption by up to 10% with improved performance compared to mobile application processors fabricated with the 32nm process.
U.S. District Court again Rules Against Apple's Request to Permanently Ban the Sale of 23 Samsung Phones
Mar 6 14
A U.S. District Court has again ruled against Apple's request to permanently ban the sale of 23 Samsung phones found to have infringed on its patents. Judge Lucy Koh, who presided over the original case involving the two technology companies, announced that Apple has not established that it is entitled to the permanent injunction it seeks. Judge Lucy Koh did uphold $290 million in additional damages awards by a federal jury in November. This comes atop the $640 million from the original award that wasn't in dispute in this retrial. Samsung announced that they will challenge the amount of damages, saying that it was based on erroneous calculation methods. Samsung argues that they owe Apple only $52 million in additional damages.
Samsung Announces Partnership with Iberia
Mar 4 14
Samsung has announced a partnership with Iberia to introduce near field communications (NFC) technology in different stages of airport check-in and boarding. Under the agreement, Iberia customers will be able to use a Samsung NFC-enabled smartphone to pass through the airport's security control and boarding gates, even when the device is switched off. To use the service, customers will need to click on the option to have the boarding pass sent to the smartphone's NFC card when checking in online for a flight, and will then simply have to hold the device near the NFC readers to pass through security and board the plane.
