UNISOC Unveils Next Generation 5G SoC for Mobile Devices

Leading provider of mobile communication and IoT chipsets, UNISOC, has introduced its next-generation 5G SoC mobile platform. The T7520 uses cutting-edge process technology, to enable an optimized 5G experience with substantially enhanced AI computing / multimedia image processing capabilities and lowering power consumption.

The T7520 is UNISOC’s second-generation 5G smartphone platform. Built on a 6nm EUV process technology and empowered by some of the latest design techniques, it offers substantially enhanced performance at very low power levels. The SoC has four ARM Cortex-A76 cores and four Cortex-A55 cores with an ARM Mali-G57 based GPU, providing an incredible streaming and gaming experience at 5G speeds.

Developed on UNISOC’s Makalu 5G platform, the T7520, integrates the world’s first 5G modem to support coverage enhancement for any application scenario. By allowing carriers to deploy 5G on existing 4G spectrum, it expands the application of UNISOC’s patented large-bandwidth dynamic spectrum sharing technology, maximizing the utilization of existing resources to facilitate cooperation and sharing for a cheaper and faster deployment of 5G. In particular, the T7520 is optimized for use on 500 KM/h high-speed railway, providing passengers with a premium 5G experience.

Key Features of the T7520:

Advanced 6nm EUV Process Technology: This process technology uses an extreme ultraviolet light with an extremely short wavelength of 13.5 nm which with an accuracy closer to a X-ray, provides extremely high lithographic resolution and achieves a better balance between cost, performance and power consumption. Compared to the previous 7nm process, the 6nm process has an 18% improvement in density of transistors, which allows more transistors to be integrated per unit area and reduces power consumption by 8%, allowing the battery to last longer.

New Low of Power Consumption: The T7520 adopts UNISOC’s new-generation low-power consumption architecture and AI-based power regulation technology. Compared to mobile platforms which are paired with a separate 5G modem, the SoC is the all-around leader in power consumption for both light-load and heavy-load scenarios and delivers a power consumption reduction of up to 35% for some data business scenarios.

World’s First 5G Modem to Support Coverage Enhancement for All Scenarios: This modem supports 5G NR TDD+FDD carrier aggregation and uplink and downlink decoupling and can enhance coverage by more than 100%. UNISOC’s innovative 5G super transmitter technology can increase the uplink speed by up to 60% and meet demanding scenarios such as VR and 4K/8K ultra-high-resolution live streaming. The T7520 supports the Sub-6 GHz band, NSA/SA dual-mode networking, and 2G through 5G networks. Under the SA mode, it provides a peak uplink speed of more than 3.25Gbps. In addition, it supports dual-SIM dual-5G and EPS Fall-back and VoNR high-resolution audio and video calls.

Powerful AI Capabilities and Limitless Development Potential: The T7520 SoC integrates a new-generation NPU with greatly improved performance and excellent energy efficiency. The energy efficiency (TOPS/W) increase by more than 50% compared to the previous generation product. Innovative design can better support complex AI applications in high performance, low power consumption mode.

Comprehensively Enhanced Multimedia Processing Capabilities: The SoC carries UNISOC's proprietary sixth-generation Vivimagic solution and second-generation FDR (Full Dynamic Range) technology, a dedicated AI accelerator, and upgraded four-core ISP architecture to provide an ultra-high resolution of 100MP and multi-camera processing capability. These, together with leading image technologies from ACUTElogic, deliver exceptional image quality of photograph and unlimited video capture capabilities.
 T7520 adopts new-generation multicore display architecture and supports up to 120 Hz of refresh rate. With omni-channel and all-format HDR rendering capabilities, Multi-screen display can support up to 4K at HDR10+ quality. This allows it to substantially improve the user experience for high-frame-rate games, 5G UHD videos and VR/VR applications.

Integrated Financial-Level Security: The T7520 adopts UNISOC’s second-generation Integrated Secure Element solution. This solution integrates financial level security into the SOC. It provides a 100% improvement in computing performance and supports computing-intensive security scenarios such as encrypted video calls. It also supports most of the crypto algorithms and better scalability and offers a greater storage capacity capable of supporting more than 100 apps. Thanks to a high degree of integration, T7520 significantly reduces the difficulty of PCB design and also lowers the device design and manufacturing costs, providing customers with a more competitive solution.
