Renesas Electronics' EMMA Mobile series target to address the requirements for these markets, integrating all the necessary ingredients for the next generation portable multimedia devices: multi-core processor technologies, industry leading power managements, latest digital audio/video encoding/decoding support, and extensive connectivity peripherals.


EMMA Mobile/EV2 integrates high-performance multimedia engine for decoding various digital audio/video formats up to Full HD resolution, and EMMA Mobile/EV2 with dual core CPU and state-of-the-art 3D graphics engine.


  • Cortex®-A9 with NEON™ (Media extension) (EV2 with dual processor core);
  • Flexible A/V engine capable of decoding Full-HD (1080p) contents for MPEG4, VC-1 and H.264 playbacks;
  • Supports built-in advanced interface with 3D graphics engine;
  • Supports USB, IIC, SD and various interfaces
  • Proven power management techniques utilized in mobile phone SoCs to offer industry-leading low power consumption during multimedia playbacks;
  • Supports both Mobile DDR and DDR2, flexibly enabling system designers to develop low-power portable applications, or cost-effective non-portable devices.
