  • Amlogic 2018 Roadmap Reveals S905X2, S905C, and S922 Processors

    I’ve been asked what’s next for Amlogic a few times recently, and today I received an Amlogic 2017/2018 roadmap dated Q3 2017 that shows three new processors beside Amlogic S805X, which has yet to be launched into products: Amlogic S905C, S905X2 and S922. So let’s have a look at the three new processors.

    Click to Enlarge

    Amlogic S905C specifications:
    • CPU – Quad core ARM Cortex A53 processor
    • GPU- ARM Mali-450MP2
    • System Memory – Up to 3GB DDR3/3L, LPDDR2/3 memory
    • Storage – NAND flash, eMMC 5.0 flash, and NOR flash interfaces
    • Video – 4K60 HEVC decoder, 4K30 H.264 decoder, and AVS+ decoder with HDR10, HLG, 1080p60 H.264 encoder
    • Video Output – HDMI 2.2b, CVBS
    • Audio – integrated audio DAC
    • Integrated DVB-C demodulator , 1x TS input
    • Others – 10/100 Ethernet, 2x USB 2.0
    • Package – 13 x 13 mm BGA

    Engineering samples have been available since July 2017, and it looks to be targeting the Chinese cable TV market with an AVS+ decoder and built-in DVB-C demodulator. Android and TVOS SDK will be provided. I had never heard about tvOS, and it looks to be the operating system used in Apple TV boxes. Will Amlogic processor be found in Apple devices, or is that another “TVOS”?

    Amlogic S905X2 is an update for S905X with a new manufacturing process and a mysterious dual core Dvalin GPU:
    • CPU – Quad core ARM Cortex A53 processor
    • GPU- Dvalin MP2
    • Video – Advanced HEVC, VP9 decoders; H.264, H.265 encoder
    • HDR – Dolby Vision, HDR10+
    • Ultra low power
    • Next gen process

    Amlogic S922 will move to next gen Arm cores, and an upgraded GPU, but we don’t know a whole lot:
    • CPU – Octa-core next gen Arm CPU
    • GPU – Next gen GPU
    • Video – Dual 4K decode/4K encode
    • Full HDR standards
    • Display – MIPI DSI
    • Camera – MIPI CSI
    • Interfaces – USB type C, and PCI-e
    • Ultra low power

    That processor should be able to handle 4K 3D videos thanks to the dual decoder, and will likely go beyond TV boxes, with the camera and display interfaces, so maybe Amlogic S922 laptops or tablets will be a thing at the end of 2018. If that’s the case, the processor will likely use an Arm Cortex A7x/A5x configuration, instead of just eight Cortex A55 cores.

      If you’re a keen watcher of the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), then a new device from Shenzhen SEI Robotics Co., Ltd. labelled a ‘4K ATV Stick’ will probably have piqued your interest, with the external photos showing off a HDMI dongle, with Google Logo running the latest version of Android TV and with a Google Assistant enabled voice remote.

    • Google removes ‘Kodi’ from search autocomplete in anti-piracy effort
      trebor
      Google has banned the term “Kodi” from its autocomplete feature, meaning those who look for information on the set-top box will have to type out the full term in order to search, as reported by TorrentFreak. Google has been increasing its anti-piracy efforts in recent years, banning terms from autocomplete and making changes to its search algorithms in order to demote copyright-infringing material.

      While Kodi is legal software in a set-top box for streaming, it supports a myriad of

    • Google starts blocking its apps on uncertified Android devices
      trebor
      If you're fond of loading custom ROMs on your Android phone, life just became complicated. Google has quietly started blocking access to its apps on uncertified devices whose firmware was built after March 16th. If you're affected, you'll get a warning that a device is "not certified" and can't sign into a Google account. This won't prevent you from loading ROMs, but you'll have to register your device IDs on a white list every time you undergo a factory reset -- when there's a 100-ID...

      AMD has finally issued a full response to CTS Labs’ report that Ryzen and EPYC processors contain a total of 13 security flaws. Here’s the short version of the chipmakers’ response:
      • Exploitation of the vulnerabilities requires admin access
      • The vulnerabilities have to do with firmware and chipsets, not the x86 architecture
      • Patches are coming in the form of BIOS updates and firmware patches only--no microcode updates are required--via OEMs and ODMs
      • All issues will be addressed within “weeks,”
