Midget ARMs – NEC’s new Camera phone processor

NEC has just announced one of the smalled ARM processors you will see.  As mobile phones are getting more and more complex, more and better features are being added.  In a smart phone such as the Blackberry Storm, or the iPhone, it is not uncommon to have 3 or 4 (or more) ARM cores in the design.  NEC just added another.  The new NEC CE143 is meant for one thing, running the camera on your phone.  Most phone cameras have a 2 or so megapixel cam on them, some are heading towards 8+.  The CE143 is meant for 12 megapixel cameras, and can record full 1080p HD video, on your phone.  Check out the size of this:
