Samsung 1GHz Orion Cortex A9 CPU plus performance flash and 5MP/14.6MP CMOS chips outed

Samsung said they were planning a whole family of Galaxy Tab slates, and having seen the company’s component news this morning we’re now pretty excited at what those tablets might offer.  Samsung Electronics has outed its 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 “Orion” processor, a dual-core chip with five-times the 3D crunching abilities of its predecessor, together with high-performance 8-gigabyte (GB) and 16GB moviNAND flash memory and a pair of back-illuminated CMOS chips for mobile devices, shooting either 5-megapixel or 14.6-megapixel stills.



The Samsung Orion obviously supports Full HD 1080p – both encode and decode – with an HDMI 1.3a output that can be concurrently run while the Cortex A9 chip simultaneously drives two onboard displays.  There’s also an embedded GPS receiver, and Samsung will be offering two versions of Orion: one stacked with memory and another, smaller, with just the chip itself.  Sampling will take place in Q4 2010, with mass production in the first half of next year.
As for the NAND flash, Samsung expect to begin producing 16GB moviNAND using 20nm-class 32Gb NAND flash later in September, and then will begin replacing its existing 30nm-class 32Gb chips with 20nm-class chips later in the year.
Finally, both CMOS chips – the S5K4E5 and S5K2N1 - support 30fps video capture, and Samsung reckons the back-illuminated design takes in 30-percent more light than regular chips.  The S5K4E5 will be headed to smartphones and other portable devices, while the S5K2N1 is targeted more at digital video cameras; mass production will start in Q4 2010 and Q1 2011 respectively.
