UNISOC Launches New-Gen 5G SoC T7520
SHANGHAI, Feb. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — UNISOC, a leading global supplier of mobile communication and IoT chipsets, today officially launched its new-generation 5G SoC mobile platform – UNISOC T7520. Using cutting-edge process technology, T7520 enables an optimized 5G experience with substantially enhanced AI computing and multimedia imaging processing capabilities while lowering power consumption.
T7520 is UNISOC’s second-generation 5G smartphone platform. Built on a 6nm EUV process technology and empowered by some of the latest design techniques, it offers substantially enhanced performance at a lower level of power consumption than ever.
T7520 has four Arm Cortex-A76 cores and four Arm Cortex-A55 cores with an Arm Mali-G57 based GPU, providing an incredible streaming and gaming experience at 5G speeds.
T7520, developed on UNISOC’s Makalu 5G platform, integrates the world’s first 5G modem to support coverage enhancement for any application scenario((1)). By allowing carriers to deploy 5G on their existing 4G spectrums, T7520 expands the application of UNISOC’s patented large-bandwidth dynamic spectrum sharing technology, maximizing the utilization of existing resources to facilitate cooperation and sharing for a cheaper and faster deployment of 5G. In particular, T7520 is optimized for use on 500KM/h high-speed railway, providing passengers with a premium 5G experience.
“T7520 is built upon some of the world’s leading technologies, giving it comprehensively enhanced performance at a new low of power consumption,” said Steve Chu, CEO of UNISOC. “Its open and innovative architecture demonstrates our commitment to joining hands with partners to provide users with a superior intelligent experiences.”
UNISOC T7520 has the following key features:
— Advanced 6nm EUV process technology: This process technology uses an
extreme 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 better balance between cost,
performance and power consumption. Compared to the previous 7nm process,
the 6nm process has a 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 mobile platforms which paired with a separate 5G
modem, T7520 is the 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((1)): This 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 meet demanding scenarios such as VR
and 4K/8K ultra-high-resolution live streaming. T7520 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) increase by
more than 50% compared to the previous generation product. Innovative
design can better support complex AI applications in high performance,
low power consumption mode.
— Comprehensively enhanced multimedia processing capabilities: T7520
carries 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 of photograph 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 it to substantially
improve the user experience for high-frame-rate games, 5G UHD videos and
— Integrated financial-level security: T7520 adopts UNISOC’s
second-generation Integrated Secure Element solution. This solution
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. It 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, T7520 significantly reduces the difficulty of PCB design
and also lowers the device design and manufacturing costs, providing
customers with a more competitive solution.
(Note 1) The industry’s first 5G modem to at once support carrier aggregation, uplink and downlink decoupling and super
uplink and achieve coverage enhancement for Sub-6GHz 5G network scenarios.
