New 5G SoC for mobile devices – Tiger T7520 unveiled
UNISOC’s new 5G SoC mobile platform, TIGER T7520 is another major achievement in the 5G sector., The 5G SoC promises unmatched performance in six dimensions, including manufacturing process, communications, AI, multimedia, power consumption, and security.
Advanced 6nm EUV process technology: This process technology uses ultraviolet light with an extremely short wavelength of 13.5 nm which with an accuracy close to X-ray, provides an extremely high lithographic resolution and achieves a perfect balance between cost, performance and power consumption. Compared to the previous 7nm process, the 6nm process has an 18% improvement in density of transistors, which allows more transistors to be integrated per unit area and reduces power consumption by 8%, allowing the battery to last longer.
New low of power consumption: T7520 adopts UNISOC’s new-generation low-power consumption architecture and AI-based power regulation technology. Compared to the mobile platforms paired with a separate 5G modem, UNISOC T7520 is an all-around leader in power consumption for both light-load and heavy-load scenarios and delivers a power consumption reduction of up to 35% for some data business scenarios.
The world’s first 5G modem to support coverage enhancement for all scenarios: UNISOC T7520 modem supports 5G NR TDD+FDD carrier aggregation and uplink and downlink decoupling and can enhance coverage by more than 100%. UNISOC’s innovative 5G super transmitter technology can increase the uplink speed by up to 60% and very well meets demanding scenarios such as VR and 4K/8K ultra-high-resolution live streaming. T7520 further supports the Sub-6GHz band, NSA/SA dual-mode networking, and 2G through 5G networks. Under the SA mode, it provides a peak uplink speed of more than 3.25Gbps. In addition, it supports dual-SIM dual-5G and EPS Fall-back and VoNR high-resolution audio and video calls.
Powerful AI capabilities and limitless development potential: T7520 integrates a new-generation NPU with greatly improved performance and excellent energy efficiency. The energy efficiency (TOPS/W) in this modem is increased by more than 50% compared to the previous generation product. The innovative design is capable to better supportcomplex AI applications in high performance, low power consumption mode.
Comprehensively enhanced multimedia processing capabilities: T7520 is integrated with UNISOC’s proprietary sixth-generation Vivimagic solution and second-generation FDR (Full Dynamic Range) technology, a dedicated AI accelerator, and upgraded four-core ISP architecture to provide an ultra-high resolution of 100MP and multi-camera processing capability. These together with leading image technologies from ACUTElogic, deliver exceptional image quality and unlimited video capture capabilities.
T7520 adopts a new-generation multicore display architecture and supports up to 120Hz of refresh rate. With omni-channel and all-format HDR rendering capabilities, multi-screen display can support up to 4K at HDR10+ quality. This allows the modem to substantially improve the user experience for high-frame-rate games, 5G UHD videos and AR/VR applications.
Integrated financial-level security: T7520 adopts UNISOC’s second-generation ‘Integrated Secure Element’ solution that integrates the financial level secure element into the SoC and provides higher security than embedded SE. It provides a 100% improvement in computing performance and supports computing-intensive security scenarios such as encrypted video calls. The SoC also supports most of crypto algorithms and better scalability and offers a greater storage capacity capable of supporting more than 100 apps. Thanks to a high degree of integration, UNISOC T7520 significantly reduces the complexity of PCB design and also lowers the device design and manufacturing costs, providing customers with a more competitive solution.
“T7520 is built upon some of the world’s leading technologies, giving it a comprehensively enhanced performance at a new low of power consumption,” said Steve Chu, CEO of UNISOC. “It’s open and innovative architecture further demonstrates our commitment to join hands with partners to provide users with superior intelligent experiences.”
