Renesas Mobile’s MP5225 combines the industry-leading advanced application processor, in terms of graphics and video performance, with the SP2531 modem platform. This incorporates a single chip triple-mode LTE modem supporting LTE/HSPA+/GSM, RF transceiver ICs, high power amplifiers, power management devices and related software.

The MP5225 allows OEMs and carriers to deliver on the promise of next-generation applications and services for smartphones, tablet PCs and other consumer electronics devices enabled by LTE networks.

The MP5225 supports all leading OS including Android, Windows, MeeGo, Symbian and others. In addition, Renesas Mobile intends to provide a coherent platform environment by leveraging the software and hardware technology expertise gained through the SH-Mobile APE5R development on the MP5225 mobile platform as well as future R-Mobile Series products.

The SH-Mobile APE5R Application Processor will provide H.264 1080p High Profile and 3D Video; 3D stereoscopic HD video; coding at 30fps in multiple-views; a hardware off-load solution for achieving high profile emerging codec support, and 3D Graphics and OpenCL support.

Based on a dual-core (1.2GHz) Cortex-A9 ARM, the SH-Mobile APE5R delivers a total of 6,000 Dhrystone MIPS. A highly integrated triple-mode LTE modem platform, the SP2531, incorporates the technologies acquired from Nokia Corporation, which has long been used to test and tune LTE networks. It supports TD-LTE and FDD-LTE cat 3 (100mMbps downlink (DL) / 50Mbps uplink (UL)) along with HSPA+ features such as DC-HSPA+ cat-24 and HSUPA cat-7 giving HSPA+ data rates of 42Mbps (DL) /11.5Mbps (UL) respectively, with global coverage through its unique RF systems design.

The LTE modem supports multiple world-wide simultaneous band combinations with the smallest form factor which is achieved by an RF subsystem design that includes a 65nm multi-mode LTE transceiver and a highly optimized multi-mode, multi-band power amplifier module. A dedicated 24-bit multi-DSP engine provides audio playback at low power consumption.
