InSignal Arndale Board

Based on Samsung Exynos 5250 Processor

The InSignal Arndale board is the first development board based on the new Exynos 5250 applications processor.  This development board is available as a modular package with various display options and connectivity modules.  The board is capable of running Android or Linux.

The Exynos 5250 applications processor is based on a Dual Core Cortex-A15 CPU clocked at 1.7 GHz and Quad core Mali-T604 GPU in order to deliver a responsive user experience.

By building the development board from a Mali-T604 series based chip it is possible to run OpenCL 1.1 full profile GPU compute applications to accelerate performance and save energy.  OpenGL ES 3.0* is also supported by the Mali-T600 series  to help deliver life like computer graphics for games, UI, Augmented Reality, Navigation and anything else that requires complex graphics.

* Product is based on a published Khronos Specification, and is expected to pass the Khronos Conformance Testing Process. Current conformance status can be found at

  • Mali-T604 MP4 GPU and Dual Cortex-A15
    The quad core Mali-T604 will allow you to accelerate your games, UI’s browses many other applications with the worlds fastest OpenGL ES 3.0 mobile GPU.  Offload computationally intensive work to the OpenCL 1.1 Full Profile capable GPU to save energy and boost performance.
  • Open platform
    Order your board and get developing with the confidence that you are working with all the benefits of an open source eco system combined with easy access to drivers and OpenGL ES resources in the Mali Developer Center.
