Smartwatch

Smarter processor
that makes a smartwatch
to be wearable
To design attractive smartwatch, mobile processor should ensure that advanced features could be available by using lower energy within small and slim size. Samsung Exynos Processor specifically designed for smartwatch has realized the ultra-low power consumption in ultra-mini size with ultra-advanced functionalities.
Trends
Smartwatch industry is expanding its market by breaking the prejudice consumers have on design, battery life and functionality.
Smartwatch manufacture wants to have design flexibility for make futuristic or traditional watch design. And great power efficiency for longer battery life is also needed with 27/4 connectivity for diverse use cases. Furthermore, smartwatch needs to adopt a new kind of wearable feature such as payment, home automation, wellness and healthcare with great ease.

Design as a fashion,
Battery life as a gadget
Smartwatch should have great design as a fashion item and longer battery life as a wearable. For battery life, improving power efficiency of chip is important while extending a space for battery pack. With reducing power consumption by process node innovation, smaller chip size also helps to extend the battery space.

14nm FinFET process
for efficiency and size
Samsung launched the industry’s first 14nm FinFET process-based processor dedicated to wearable in 2016. With innovative 3D structure of FinFET, the chip reduces current leakage drastically resulting in longer battery life and smaller chip size enables smartwatch to feature bigger battery pack.
SiP-ePoP Package
For smartwatch industry, Samsung developed SiP-ePoP package that integrates power management IC, memory and mobile processor into the single package. With special heat-resistant properties, low power process and wearable dedicated power IC, Samsung Exynos Processor offers small size and slim z-height of package for slicker watch design and bigger battery space.
Stay connected,
Remain contented
Samsung Exynos Processor offers diverse connectivity features including cellular modem, WiFi, Bluetooth and GNSS for smartwatch user to stay connected at anywhere and anytime.
