1Ghz ARM Cortex HD Media Rich Applications Processor

The 3rd generation ZMS-08 media-rich applications processor brings 1080p Blu-ray quality H.264 decode to low-power devices. Delivering more than four times the performance of previous generation devices, the ZMS-08 combines the flexible multi-format media processing capabilities of the Stemcell Computing array with an 1GHz ARM Cortex processor and rich peripheral integration to deliver the low-power, high performance media-rich processing required of next-generation devices.

The ZMS-08 enables the next leap in the media-rich internet revolution. Features such as Blu-ray quality playback, accelerated OpenGL ES 2.0 and rich peripheral integration help to deliver the features that blur the boundary between the capabilities of the traditional PC and low-power connected devices.
