Royal Philips Electronics has introduced an advanced Nexperia Mobile Multimedia Processor PNX4008, targeted at the growing market for smartphones.

Sony Ericsson, who already deployed previous Nexperia generations in its Symbian OS and UIIQ based P800, P900 and P910 smartphone family, has selected the PNX4008 for future Symbian OS phone products.

The PNX4008 is based on an ARM9 processor accelerated by dedicated, integrated engines providing high-end multimedia functions for excellent power consumption and overall system performance. The video and imaging system from Philips delivers full frame rate video for record/playback and video telephony, an enhanced music/audio system from CEVA, gaming subsystem using a PowerVR 3D graphics engine from ARM and Imagination Technologies, and a security subsystem from Discretix.

The company has also introduced the PNX5220, a Nexperia Multimedia Baseband for use in high-end handsets. It supports quad-band GPRS/EDGE and two-band UMTS. Its application processing performance is based on an ARM926 subsystem running at 208 MHz and multiple hardware accelerators. The PNX5220 runs video at 30 frames per second in CIF resolution, stereo polyphony with 64 voices and sound effects, and it provides the hooks for GPS and other connectivity functionalities, like WLAN and Bluetooth. It allows the phone to connect via the latest mobile connectivity standards like USB OTG and fast IrDa.
