Samsung 2410 ARM Processor Information

Because 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.

The 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. The integrated on-chip functions that are described in this document include:


  • 1.8V internal, 1.8V/2.5V/3.3V memory, 3.3V external I/O microprocessor with 16KB I-Cache, 16KB D-Cache, and MMU.
  • External memory controller. (SDRAM Control, Chip Select logic)
  • LCD controller (up to 4K color STN and 64K color TFT) with 1-ch LCD-dedicated DMA.
  • 4-ch DMAs with external request pins
  • 3-ch UART with handshake(IrDA1.0, 16-byte FIFO) / 1-ch SP
  • 1-ch multi-master IIC-BUS/1-ch IIS-BUS controller
  • SD Host interface version 1.0 & Multi-Media Card Protocol version 2.11 compatible
  • 2-port USB Host /1- port USB Device(ver 1.1)
  • 4-ch PWM timers & 1-ch internal timer
  • Watch Dog Timer
  • 117-bit general purpose I/O ports / 24-ch external interrupt source
  • Power control: Normal, Slow, Idle, Stop and Power-off mode
  • 8-ch 10-bit ADC and Touch screen interface.
  • RTC with calendar function.
  • On-chip clock generator with PLL
