Broadcom intros BCM2763 VideoCore IV processor for mobiles: 20MP, HD video recording
Broadcom, one of the world’s top providers of semiconductors, announced the Broadcom BCM2763 VideoCore IV processor for mobile devices – a next generation multimedia processor capable of providing high-end performances.
The VideoCore IV uses 40 nanometer (40nm) CMOS process technology, thus requiring lower power consumption than 65nm processors.
The main features of the Broadcom BCM2763 VideoCore IV multimedia processor include: up to 20MP digital camera and photo image processing, 1080p (HD) video recording and video playback, and 1 gigapixel 2D/3D graphics rendering.
Unfortunately, Broadcom says that the first handsets to feature the new VideoCore IV multimedia processor will be available only starting 2011. HTC may be one of the manufacturers to launch phones based on the BCM2763 VideoCore IV, since the Taiwanese company is also evaluating Broadcom’s 3.5G chips.
