Samsung’s new media processors for Digital Photo Frames can display 15Mpixel JPEG images in less than 3 seconds!

Samsung today announced a new series of media processors designed specifically for the digital photo frame (DPF) market. The Samsung S5L2010 series of cost-effective, high-performance processors enables DPF developers to offer compelling next-generation multimedia functionality to optimize the photo and video viewing experience. Performance tests show that Samsung’s S5L2010 processors are able to display 15Mpixel JPEG images in less than 3 seconds including reading the file from embedded NAND, JPEG decoding, scaling and drawing to the LCD- faster than any other competitive product on the market. The DPFs that incorporate Samsung’s new S5L2010 processors have the capability to quickly and efficiently decode video and audio in a variety of multimedia formats including MPEG-1/2/4, Xvid, Motion JPEG, MP3, WMA, OGG and AAC.

These new media processors from Samsung also integrate additional features including an ADC for touch screen control, SLC/ MLC NAND booting, built-in RTC, a LED PWM driver for the LCD backlight, an audio PWM 2 channel output, TV-Out, and DVB-T interface which reduces bill-of-material costs. The S5L2010 media processor is housed in a quad flat package. Samsung’s S5L2010 media processor is sampling now and will be in mass production in the first quarter of 2009.
