Marvell out of Santa Clara, CA is planning on releasing a line of computer tablets targeted at the clinical market. Mildly reminiscent of the Apple iPad, the Moby MED device will include futuristic features like a webcam, microphone, and memory card reader. The platform, which is yet to be released, will allow the option of choosing from different display screens and feature add-ons suitable to the specific needs of the customer.
The Moby MED tablet platform is an always-on, high performance multimedia reference design featuring live, real-time content, 1080p full-HD, 3D capabilities, and full Flash Internet. Marvell’s Moby MED tablet platform is designed to allow physicians to consult with patients remotely in real-time, allow consumers to manage their own health histories in a highly-secure, encrypted environment, make it possible to send and read high-resolution diagnostic imagery, and give consumers access to online medical information in a light-weight, long-running device.
Powered by a high-performance, highly scalable, and low-power Marvell® ARMADA™ 600 series of application processors, the Moby MED tablet platform features gigahertz processor speed, 1080p full-HD encode and decode, intelligent power management, power-efficient Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/FM/GPS connectivity, 3D graphics capability and support for multiple software standards including full Adobe Flash, Android™ and Windows Mobile.
Optional platform features include Marvell’s leading storage and wireless solutions such as embedded MMC, which is a handheld device optimized SSD-type technology, and Marvell Mobile Hotspot which allows Wi-Fi access that supports up to eight concurrent users connected to the Internet via a cellular broadband connection.
