POP32 & POP64 SiPs integrate SDRAM and Allwinner A33/A133 CPUs into compact IC design

Apr 23, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza 232 views

Source Parts has recently posted info for the system in package (SiP) series called POPCAM (POP32 & POP64). The POP32 integrates the Allwinner A33 CPU and 128MB DDR3 while the POP64 integrates the Allwinner A133 CPU and 1GB LPDDR4.

 

Besides its quad-core CPU (ARM Cortex-A7), the POP32 also features an ARM Mali 400MP2 GPU. It has display support for common interfaces as MIPI DSI, LVDS and RGB/LCD with a maximum resolution of 1280×800. USB interfaces are also supported (OTG, Host, and HSIC). Other features include a camera interface (5MP), a Crypto Engine and Arm TrustZone support.

The POP64 also comes with a quad core CPU (ARM Cortex-53), however it features a GE8300 GPU that supports OpenGL, OpenCL and Vulcan. Additionally, there is support for ethernet (2x 1000Mbps EMAC), audio (3x I2S) and a better camera interface (2x MIPI CSI up to [email protected]). The max display resolution is higher than the POP32 (up to 1920×1200) and it has similar I/O interfaces as the POP32. Refer to the specifications list below for more details.

The company also claimed they will have three new modules in the future, Airpop, Micropop and Butterpop. The video below features the design for their Micropop with their POP32 SiP.

Both SiPs seem to support Android 10, although Source Parts might develop support for other operating systems in the future.
