Vinno I (with part number VC868) is a 0.18um mixed-signal single-chip MMP (Mobile Multimedia Processor) with embedded 1.3mega pixel Camera Processor, JPEG codec, ISP(Image Signal Processor), LCD controller, MP3 decoder, 64-channel MIDI synthesizer, 3 D-sound processor, 10-band equalizer, stereo audio speaker/headphone amplifier, stereo voice ADC, 8-bit MCU, file system, nand-Flash controller, and SD/MMC card controller, Vinno I provides a competitive solutions for 2.5G and 3G phones.
The OmniPod uses the MC9S08RX32A which has two die inside a single package--a custom RF integrated circuit (IC) and a standard MC9S08GB60A 8-bit MCU. The PDM uses the Freescale Dragonball microprocessor, the brains of the wireless device, as well as the same MC9S08RX32A, enabling a true wireless connection.
