ZiilLABS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Creative Technology, and ARM will be showcasing ZiiLABS new ZMS-08 -based SiVO Digital Home Platform this week at CES 2010.
By combining the ZiiLABS StemCell Computing Array and the ARM 1GHz Cortex-A8 processor into a single SoC, the consumer can experience 1080p Blu-ray quality HDTV and 3D graphics user interfaces on low-power connected home devices.
The ZMS-08 flexible StemCell Computing Array features 64 fully programmable floating- point processing elements that deliver exceptional multimedia capabilities coupled with improved application performance. The flexible array architecture enables users to experience the widest range of community and commercial generated content including H.264, Microsoft WMV9, MPEG2, MPEG4, OpenGL ES and Adobe Flash.
The tightly coupled high performance 1 GHz Cortex-A8 superscalar processor features NEON™ technology for multimedia and signal processing, TrustZone security technology enabling Web 2.0 commercial transactions such as the capability to pay for, download and view the latest Hollywood blockbuster for a specific time period, 256K L2 cache for enhanced Web 2.0 browsing performance and a 1 GByte addressable RAM. This, together with the StemCell Computing Array, provides the high performance required for next-generation connected consumer multimedia experiences - while operating within the tight cost constraints and power envelopes needed for compact high density, thermally constrained home devices.
The SiVO Digital Home Platform provides support for a rich software portfolio, including Linux, Android and a wide range of media codecs and libraries. The platform provides support for 1080p Blu-ray quality video and can support Adobe Flash Player 10 and OpenGL ES 2.0 utilising ZiiLABS' proprietary media processing array to provide the video, graphics features and low-power performance. ZiiLABS, together with ARM, work with an extensive range of third parties and open source communities to leverage the Cortex-A8 processor and NEON extensions.
