Spreadtrum's SC883XG quad-core smartphone platform has been developed using 28nm process technology.

Chinese semiconductor company Spreadtrum has released an integrated quad-core smartphone chip, SC883XG, based on 28nm process, which promises to lower power consumption and improve performance.

The SC883XG is an integrated TD-SCDMA/GSM/GPRS/EDGE multi-mode quad-core smartphone platform that is said to offer several advantages, including power consumption control, cooling management and smaller chip size.

Spreadtrum's SC883XG chip integrates a 1.4GHz quad-core ARM Cortex A7 CPU, a dual-core graphics architecture based on ARM Mali 400 MP, and supports TD-SCDMA/HSPA(+) and GSM/GPRS/EDGE with dual-SIM dual-standby capability.

The new chip can support 2D/3D graphics acceleration, 1080p HD video, 8 megapixel camera, and ISP graphic processing engine to allow smartphones better manipulate images.

Spreadtrum also says the chip can bring film quality video to smartphones as it supports 1080P HD video hard-decoding and HD recording, along with anti-shaking technology.

The chip can support Android 4.4 and can be integrated with company's WiFi/Bluetooth/GPS/FM connectivity chip.

Spreadtrum chairman and CEO, Leo Li, said with the fast adoption of smartphones globally, competitive products with quad-core processors are attracting more and more attention of consumers.

"Our newest turnkey solution, which integrates a quad-core chipset designed with advanced semiconductor process technology with a complete mobile platform solution for our customers, enables handset makers to develop cost-effective and differentiated products quickly and tailored for the needs of different markets," Li said.

Mass production of the chip is expected to start later this year.
