Linux phone design gains "print-quality" image processor
,----[ Quote ]
| Venture-backed Nethra Imaging is using a Linux-based
| smartphone reference design to demonstrate its
| "print-quality" auto-focus camera SoC
| (system-on-chip), at the first-ever 6Sight "Future
| of Imaging" conference today in Monterey, Calif. The
| reference design, based on a Freescale i.MX31 processor,
| was supplied by GDA Technologies.
| GDA launched its i.MX31-based Linux smartphone reference
| design in April. GDA co-founder Gopa Periyaden, said
| at the time that the design would enable device
| developers to evaluate a broad range of mobile
| phone subsystems, such as cameras, GSM/EDGE
| baseband processors, LCDs, keypads, and WiFi and
| Bluetooth radio modules.
