Overview

ATM7021A  is the member of Actions’ OWL series Tablet SOC, ATM7021A integrated Leopard Gen.I CPU core,which offers the dual-core CPU performance and functionality with low power and low cost, and the Imagination PowerVR SGX540 GPU(Graphic Processing Unit) to provide the best user experience for customers. With the independent VPU (Video Processing Unit) integrated in ATM7021A, user will enjoy the most fluent and high-performance video playback & recording experiences. 

In order to break the myth of “High Performance equals to High Power”, Actions also phased in the unique “LPD Gen. II”(Low Power Design Generation II)” and ADP(Adaptive Dynamic Power) architectures for OWL Series, which will bring customer the longer battery life while enjoying those high performance experiences. 

Not only blindly chasing the high performance and low power, Actions always cares about the total BOM(Bill of Material) Cost, which will reflect how much end users need to pay. ATM7021A is a highly integrated SOC IC, would to provide the best price and the lowest BOM Cost in dual-core CPU products with ELQFP176 package. ATM7021A has integrated LVDS interface and HDMI Tx(Transmitter), which have become the “must to have”features in Tablet market. Also, the DDR3/DDR3L controller and large capacity NAND Flash Controller with 60bit ECC/Toggle NAND supporting will allow the system markers and brand customers to adopt the most cost effective memory in the market.  Together with the in-house designed companion chip ATC2603X which has integrated the PMU(Power Management Unit) and Audio Codecs together, ATM7021A really makes the dream comes true to provide the end users the excellent performance Tablet with the most reasonable and affordable price.
