Panasonic starts sample shipments of new-generation UniPhier system LSI Panasonic, the brand name used for marketing by Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd., has started sample shipments of a new-generation UniPhier system LSI in October. It applies next-generation AV data compression/decompression (codec) technology to Panasonic's original digital consumer electronics integration platform, UniPhier.
Using the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video format, the compression option of choice for the next-generation of HD video products, the LSI can compress full-HD large image data down to one third to half that of the conventional methods while keeping high level definition. It also extends the recordable time significantly for the same media, and can realize smooth image data communication.

Using 45-nm semiconductor micro processing technology, Panasonic has crammed an alarming 250 million transistors into the low-power-consumption LSI. It features an advanced user interface and easy connectivity to digital electronics, realized by high-performance 3D graphics processing technology and symmetry-type multiprocessor technology.

Why is it "alarming"?
