LG H13 Smart TV Chip To Debut At CES 2013

Posted Dec 3, 2012

LG has started designing their own ARM processors and the the first example, known as the LG H13, will debut in a Smart TV at CES 2013 next month.  Designed by LG Electronics, the H13 will be built for the company by TSMC.  The H13 is a 28nm chip that is expected to use ARM’s Cortex A15 architecture.

As a comparison Samsung’s Exynos 5250 is a 32nm chip, which may mean that LG’s version is more powerful.  The H in H13 means “Home Entertainment” and the 13 is a reference to the year 2013.  LG is putting around 550 designers o the H13 project to develop a mobile application processor.
