Socionext introduces a new ARM®-based multi-core processor “SC2A11A”. The SoC Integrates 24 cores of ARM CortexTM-A53 on a single die, and provides optimum solution for growing applications such as data center servers for online service providers and edge computing in IoT (Internet of Things) systems.
The SC2A11A provides optimal CPU balance of performance and power consumption for such requirements, incorporating 24 cores of power-efficient ARM Cortex-A53, along with 64-bit memory.
The small core solution implemented in the SC2A11A does not require an advanced cooling system, so the PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) coefficient is also superior, when the SoC is utilized for the data center servers. It is also suitable for IoT edge computing which processes data at the edge of the cloud.
- High energy-efficiency processor element is realized with multi-core configuration of ARM Cortex-A53.
- Large amount of data can be processed faster in memory by adopting 64 bit architecture.
Application Example: Media Transcoder System
The M820 is a new media edge server equipped with Socionext's multi-format codec MB86M30 and high- efficiency SC2A11A central processor. The M820 features Socionext's hybrid codec technology, the optimal combination of high-speed data processing using dedicated hardware and flexible, software-based processing by a general-purpose CPU. It enables data processing such as video decoding and encoding, meta-data capturing through real-time analysis, and meta-data integration to the original video. The high value-added data generated by the M820 can be used for additional complex and sophisticated processes, including its use with artificial intelligence (AI) in the cloud.
