SEOUL, Korea -- October 26, 2012

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a global leader in advanced semiconductor
solutions, announced today the immediate availability of Arndale, a new
community development board designed around its Exynos 5 Dual system-on-chip
(SoC). The Exynos 5 Dual features the implementation of both the world’s first
dual-core ARM^® Cortex™-A15 MPCore™ processor and the world’s first quad-core
ARM Mali™-T604 GPU based on 32nm High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) process technology.
Priced at an affordable $249.00, the newest board offers the open source
developer community a rich environment for producing the highest caliber of
mobile applications, including in the areas of gaming, security, multimedia
and user interface on multiple operating systems.

“Imagination is the only barrier to the next era of mobile applications,”
stated TH Kim, vice president of System LSI marketing, Device Solutions,
Samsung Electronics. “The latest community development board powered by the
Exynos 5 Dual gives developers access to a complete dual-core Cortex-A15
processor and Mali-T604 GPU platform with features not usually found on other
community platforms, including NFC, GPS and a camera sensor. This inexpensive
solution paves the way for an entirely new generation of middleware software
and applications to be developed in an open source environment.”

Samsung’s Exynos 5 Dual processor delivers an order of magnitude lift in
performance over current generation processors and leads the way in GPU
compute as the first SoC capable of full profile OpenCL. The Exynos 5 Dual
also incorporates the latest in security and multimedia technologies to meet
the needs of the next generation of mobile products. The initial version of
the Arndale board will ship with the Android Jellybean OS.

“Consumer expectations for an engaging experience are now based on what the
mobile world provides: the latest applications on a device that is always on,
always connected and always ready,” said Ian Drew, executive vice president,
marketing and business development, ARM. “ARM Partners, such as Samsung, are
driving innovation in the mobile market and enabling innovation with the
developer community by introducing platforms like the Arndale Community
Development Board. By providing broad access to solutions based on the latest
ARM technology on a single platform, Samsung will enable the next generation
of engaging applications.”
