Mobile Multimedia Platform (MMP)

We have constructed a mobile multimedia platform (MMP) based on an ARM processor with common intellectual properties (IPs). We used this platform to develop three systemon-a-chips (SoCs): the MB86V00, MB86V01, and MB86V02 (which incorporates audio/ speech processing functions for the mobile phone market). These SoCs provide all the high-resolution camera/video functions required for mobile phones on a single chip with low power consumption.
