Marvell's new Armada SoC features 64 bit ARM Cortex A53 processor with 5 mode LTE modem
At MWC on Tuesday, Marvell introduced the Armada Mobile PXA 1928 platform. The silicon slinger's co-founder and president Weilei Dei said, "The 64-bit Armada Mobile PXA 1928 is the latest addition to our industry-leading single-chip, multi-core mobile processor family."The SoC includes a quad-core, 1.5GHz Cortex A53-based CPU and a Full HD-capable GC5000 GPU.

The Armada Mobile PXA 1928 supports a number of connectivity options including LTE TDD/FDD, HSPA+, TD-HSPA+, and EDGE. It also supports VoLTE service. Built for Android and Linux mobile operating systems, the SoC will be shipped out next month to customers for sampling. This new offering joins other LTE-enabled SoC solutions offered by Marvell. For example, the Armada Mobile PXA 1088 is a SoC used by Chinese manufacturers Coolpad, Lenovo and Hisense to drive low priced 4G-LTE handsets sold by China Mobile.

The new SoC can be complemented with Marvell's Avastar 88W8887, which provides connectivity for 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0. It also includes a multi-mode, multi-band LTE RF transceiver, and an FM radio.
