Chipmaker Marvell has launched the Armada 1500 Ultra (88DE3218) system-on-chip (SoC) that is designed to support 4K entertainment. 

The latest addition to the Armada 1500 family is aimed at pay TV operators and set-top box  manufacturers hoping to cost-effectively deliver small devices with feature-rich 4K entertainment and gaming services to their subscribers.

The Armada 1500 Ultra contains a quad core 14K DMIPS ARM A53 CPU, 8-core GPU, carrier-grade security and state-of-the-art power management techniques, according to Marvell.

“I am very proud of our close collaboration with global leading service operators to bring Ultra HD, pay TV and over-the-top services to their subscribers,” said Weili Dai, president and co-founder of Marvell, which is exhibiting at TV Connect in London this week.

“As consumers increasingly demand cutting-edge home entertainment experiences that include access to high-quality, 4K digital content, it is critical that operators offer compelling entertainment services from multiple sources with uncompromised image quality at an affordable cost. At Marvell, it is our passion and commitment to deliver breakthrough technologies that enable our customers and partners to better the lives of all consumers.”
