“The PNX0106 combines a host of features for building high-performance, low-power portable audio devices with image playback. These features include a powerful 32-bit ARM926EJ-S processor, dedicated DSP for audio processing, IDE interface and USB connectivity (high-speed on-the-go). To enable low-power devices, Philips has optimized software and applied advanced clocking techniques and internal block management to the PNX0106 to significantly reduce power consumption. The device also supports low-power SDRAMs.
For audio applications, the PNX0106 features a programmable architecture that provides support for multiple audio decompression algorithms including MP3, AAC and Microsoft WMA (licensing required), as well as MP3 compression with LifeVibes Music audio enhancement algorithms. ”
The new chips will be in mass production later this year.
