a Pocket PC must be an effective combination of performance,
functionality and power conservation, Pocket PC manufacturers
are always seeking mobile processors that will make
the everyday use of PDAs more efficient and user-friendly.
While Intel products such as the StrongARM and XScale
processors have powered the majority of Pocket PCs
for the past couple of years, new ARM-based processors
are beginning to be employed as new technologies become
available. One such processor is the Samsung 2410
(S3C2410X01) mobile processor.
SAMSUNG's S3C2410X01 16/32-bit RISC microprocessor
is designed to provide a cost-effective, low power,
small die size and high performance micro-controller
solution for hand-held devices and general applications.
To reduce total system cost, S3C2410X01 also provides
the following : separate 16KB Instruction and 16KB
Data Cache, MMU to handle virtual memory management,
LCD controller(STN & TFT), NAND Flash Boot loader,
System Manager(chip select logic, SDRAM controller),
3-ch UART with handshake, 4-ch DMA, 4-ch Timers with
PWM, I/O Ports, RTC, 8- ch 10-bit ADC and Touch screen
interface, IIC-BUS interface, IIS-BUS interface, USB
Host, USB Device, SD Host & Multi-Media Card Interface,
2-ch ch SPI and PLL for clock generation.
S3C2410X01 was developed using an ARM920T core, 0.18um
CMOS standard cells and a memory complier. Its low-power,
simple , elegant and fully static design is particularly
suitable for cost-sensitive and power sensitive applications.
Also S3C2410X01 adopts a new bus architecture, AMBA
(Advanced Microcontroller Bus Architecture) An outstanding
feature of the S3C2410X01 is its CPU core, a 16/32-bit
ARM920T RISC processor designed by Advanced RISC Machines,
Ltd. The ARM920T implements MMU, AMBA BUS, and Harvard
cache architecture with separate 16KB instruction
and 16KB data caches, each with a 8-word line length.
By providing complete set of common system peripherals,
the S3C2410X01 minimizes overall system costs and
eliminates the need to configure additional components.
