Samsung Electronics is rolling out a line of media processors targeting the growing market for digital photo frames. The S5L2010 series aims to help consumer OEMs deliver entry and mid-level products that sport high performance and lower costs.

Chip designers as far afield as Shenzhen, China, said earlier this year they foresee opportunities in a rising tide of digital photo frames.

Samsung claims its chips, based on an ARM9 core, can decode a 57 pixel JPEG image in one second. The chips also decode formats including MPEG-1/2/4, Avid, Motion JPEG, MP3, WMA, OGG and AAC.

The processors integrate an analog-digital converter to support touch screens. They can boot from single- or multi-level cell NAND flash. They also include an LCD control supporting LED backlights and resolutions up to XGA.

The chips integrate TV-out and DVB-T interfaces as well as support for USB 2.0 and a wide variety of memory cards. The 65nm chips come in quad flat packs. They are sampling now and will be in mass production in Q1 09.
