ARM – XA270

Not recommended for new design.

High speed, low power, small footprint

The XA270 has been designed using the Marvell® PXA270 processor (PXA270 processor), the processor was originally designed by Intel as part of their X-Scale range of ARM based SOC (System on Chip) devices.

It provides industry-leading multimedia performance, a rich feature list and low-power capabilities making the PXA270 processor ideal for embedded applications. This concept enables the board to run industry standard operating systems and applications, thereby reducing the development time for the user.

ARM – XA270


Xscale Technology

The Intel® PXA270 processor incorporates the Intel XScale® technology which complies with the ARM* version 5TE instruction set (excluding floating-point instructions) and follows the ARM* programmer’s model. The PXA270 processor also provides Intel® Wireless MMX™ media enhancement technology, which supports integer instructions to accelerate audio and video processing. In addition, it incorporates Wireless Intel Speedstep® Technology, which provides sophisticated power management capabilities enabling excellent MIPs/mW performance.

Advanced Multimedia Technology

Instead of using additional processors or accelerators that can reduce battery life, Intel Wireless MMX technology, provides an advanced set of multimedia technology builds on the Intel® MMX™ technology originally introduced in the Pentium® processor family, enabling the large number of software developers already familiar with these instructions to quickly make their applications such as 2-D and 3-D gaming, streaming MPEG4 video, wireless encryption/decryption, Digital TV reception and voice recognition available for Intel®-based cell phones and PDAs.

Highly Flexible

The Artemis PXA270 running at 570MHz is an internet ready appliance which has a web server and browser built in when using DSP’s LaunchPad for Windows CE 5. The LaunchPad application development kit is a complete ready to use embedded computer system that includes display, keyboard & mouse and is ready for your application.
