Samsung has made available Arndale, a new community development board designed around its Exynos 5 Dual system-on-chip (SoC).
The Exynos 5 Dual features the implementation of both the dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 MPCore processor and the quad-core ARM Mali-T604 GPU based on 32nm High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) process technology. Priced at $249.00, the newest board offers the open source developer community an environment for producing mobile applications, including in the areas of gaming, security, multimedia and user interface on multiple operating systems.
"The latest community development board powered by the Exynos 5 Dual gives developers access to a complete dual-core Cortex-A15 processor and Mali-T604 GPU platform with features not usually found on other community platforms, including NFC, GPS and a camera sensor," stated TH Kim, vice president of System LSI marketing, Device Solutions, Samsung Electronics.
Samsung's Exynos 5 Dual processor leads the way in GPU compute as the first SoC capable of full profile OpenCL. It also incorporates the latest in security and multimedia technologies to meet the needs of the next generation of mobile products. The initial version of the Arndale board will ship with the Android Jellybean OS.
The Arndale community board is available for pre-order today. Further details available on www.arndaleboard.org.
