Hewlett-Packard Co. Monday introduced its latest iPAQ handheld PDAs using a Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. ARM-based processor and NAND flash memory for bootup.
The HP 1940 iPAQ will feature Samsung's 266MHz MPU based on the ARM 920T core, slated for the U.S. market. A European version, the HP 1930, will have a 203MHz frequency and uses the same ARM processor core.
Both processors will interface with NAND flash memory for data content storage, which will also be used to replace NOR flash for bootup. The ARM core has separate 16Kbytes of instruction cache and 16Kbytes of data cache.
Microsoft Corp. today will also unveil its newest version of the Pocket PC operating system, which the HP PDAs will use.
