Howchip HC7420-UFSeMM

  • World First UFS 2.0 and eMMC 5.1, 2-in-1 Test Platform
  • Powered by Samsung Exynos 7420, 64-bit Arm Cortex57/53 Octa Core Processor
  • Run by the Latest Android OS Lollipop
HC7420 Full package

HC7420-UFSeMM is a full featured UFS 2.0 and eMMC 5.1 Test/Evaluation platform that provides an ideal test environment for UFS and eMMC performance and reliability test. Based on the latest Samsung Exynos7420, the 64-bit Octa Core Processor, it supports the most of Smart phone/Tablet PC fearturs(except for Modem). And additional features such as High speed Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI etc and UFS/eMMC socket are available so that users can develop UFS 2.0 and eMMC 5.1 test program in real environment condition.

In addition, this platform provides power consumption monitoring feature for UFS and eMMC device. This feature helps UFS and eMMC developers monitor power consumption through serial interface and easily get immediate power data during system operation in each mode.

Key Benefits

  • Two socket footprints are supported to test UFS and eMMC devices. (However one socket can be mounted at a time.)
  • Able to test UFS 2.0 and eMMC in real-environment of Android Lollipop
  • Able to test UFS 2.0 and eMMC in Linux kernel or ubuntu
  • Additional circuitary to monitor power consumption of UFS or eMMC devices during operation.

Brief Specification of Exynos 7420

  • HDMI version 1.4a interface for TV monitor
  • eDP interface with 5.4Gbps speed
  • Four channels of MIPI CSI interface for four camera support (one rear camera, one front camera, and two sensors like a vision sensor to measure the distance)
  • High performance ISP engine with DRC, 3DNR, VDIS, FD, and 3AA features. The ISP engine can accommodate these scenarios:
    • 20 MP @ 30 fps + 8 MP @ 30 fps
    • 20 MP 12 fps still capture
    • Maximum 20 MP still image
    • UHD 30 fps camcording and preview
  • Dedicated peripherals for camera module control (I2C, SPI, and UART)
  • Ultra low-power audio decoding co-processor with internal SRAM
  • I2S/PCM (2 channels) and Slim-bus (1 channel) for audio interface
  • Universal Flash Storage (UFS) for high-speed (1.2 GB/s) NAND interface
  • SD3.0/MMC5.5 interfaces (2 channels, 8-bit, 1.8 V only) and SD3.0 interfaces (1 channel, 4-bit, wide-range)
  • Super-speed (5 Gbps) USB3.0 DRD (1 channel) with USB2.0 backward compatibility
  • USI with high-speed I2C (12 channels)
  • SPI (6 channels) and 3 Mbps UART (4 channels) for Bluetooth 2.0
  • On-chip HSIC (1 channel), MIPI-LLI (1 channel), and PCIe (2-channel) for modem chip interface
  • Sturdy crypto engine with DTRNG, hardware hash function accelerator, provision keys, and monotonic counters
  • 12-bit general purpose ADC (8 channels), and on-die thermal sensors (13 units)
