TZ2000 image

TZ2100XBG/TZ2101XBG/TZ2102XBG are high-performance application processors supporting enhanced sound and image data-mining, communications and security functions with ARM® Cortex®-A9 MP Core. The TZ2100XBG supports a maximum operation frequency up to 300MHz, for processing high-speed data, and the TZ2101XBG/TZ2102XBG, support a maximum operation frequency up to 600MHz. These processors are suitable for a wide range of applications such as small embedded devices, handheld devices, industrial equipment and amusement equipment.

They can also be used to construct robust systems using an encrypted circuit option.


TZ2000 series
