Highly-Integrated MIPS-Based(TM) SoC From Ingenic Sets New Performance Point For Power-Efficient And Affordable Devices

"Combining the elegance of the MIPS architecture with Ingenic's processor design expertise, we were able to create a device that sets a new performance point for cost- and power-efficient consumer product SoCs," said Qiang Liu, chairman and CEO, Ingenic Semiconductor. "We have seen significant adoption of the previous generation JZ4770 SoC, and our customers are excited to tap the performance and functionality of this new SoC for their next generation tablets and other consumer electronics products."

"We are pleased that the new MIPS-Based SoC from Ingenic leverages Imagination's advanced graphics IP to enable an engaging experience on tablets and other consumer devices. With the high level of integration and ultra-low power consumption of this new SoC, Ingenic is demonstrating its ability to become a true contender in the mobile arena," said Tony King-Smith, vice president of marketing, Imagination Technologies.

"Earlier this year, Karbonn Mobiles brought to market the world's lowest-cost Android 4.1 'Jelly Bean' tablet based on the previous generation MIPS-Based SoC from Ingenic. With its unmatched combination of high performance and ultra-low power consumption, we were able to create two generations of Karbonn Smart Tab tablets that feature long battery life, leading-edge features and a wealth of local content for the Indian market. We look forward to working with Ingenic and MIPS on future products," said Pradeep Jain, managing director, Karbonn Mobiles, a leading mobile brand and provider of attractively priced multimedia phones in India.

"We were pleased to shake hands with MIPS and Ingenic in June 2012 to announce the debut of our new iPPea TV, an Android 4.0 dongle leveraging a MIPS-Based Ingenic SoC that brings the new Android experience to any HDMI-enabled DTV," said Amanda Senkowski, CEO, iPPea Inc., an Android life applications designer and manufacturer. "We plan to leverage the new dual core JZ4780 SoC in future iPPea products. With superb system performance, and enhanced graphics and video processing capabilities, the new SoC will enable us to deliver even more compelling Android devices and applications."
