The new Amlogic A311D (Hexa-Core/Mali G52)

Amlogic is preparing a new SoC called Amlogic A311D, it´s a new SoC that we assume is still in the early stages of development and that we will soon see in the market, 2019, since other of its SoC's announced long ago as the S905X2 are still to be seen.
Amlogic A311D would be a Hexa Core distributed in 2 clusters, one with 4 ARM Cortex-A73 processors and another with 2 ARM Cortex-A53 processors , the GPU would be a 4-core Mali-G52 ARM with support for Vulkan 1.1, OpenGL 3.2 and OpenCL 3.2, it would include a NPU (Neural Processing Unit) in its configuration for AI works, in the VPU section we have support 4K2K @ 60Hz with CEC, HDR and 4K decoding h.265 , VP9 and AVS2 . This SoC would arrive would be compatible with RAM memory DDR3 / 4, LPDDR3 / 4, storage memory eMMc,  Ethernet Gigabitand alternatively I would have support for the Dolby and DTS licenses. We must also highlight the jump to the kernel 4.9.99 something that we hope will bring us firmware with 64bit by default and different improvements.

Amlogic A311D specifications known so far:

  • CPU – 4x Arm Cortex A73 @ TBD GHz, 2x Arm Cortex A53
  • GPU – Arm Mali-G52 MP4
  • Memory I/F – DDR3/4; LPDDR3/4
  • Storage I/F – eMMC, SD/SDHC/SDXC
  • Video Output – HDMI Tx up to 4K2K @ 60 Hz with CEC & HDR support, CVBS
  • Video Processing Unit (VPU)
  • Decoding – 4K (up to 4096x 2304) H.265, VP9, and AVS2
  • Encoding – 1080p H.265 & H.264
  • Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet
  • Peripherals – USB host, SDIO, UART, I2C, PWM, SARADC/ADCKEY, GPIO, timers, etc…
  • Security – TrustZone & TVP, eFuse
  • IP License – Dolby, DTS
