The chip will be used in the third-generation smart watches of Huami's Amazfit brand, said Zhao Yajun, co-founder of Huami.
Huangshan 2S is a dual-core processor based on the RISC-V, an open-source chip architecture, instruction set. It features great computing power and low power consumption.
Compared with the previous Huangshan 2 chip, the Huangshan 2S outperformed its predecessor with an increase of 18 percent in computing performance, a 56 percent decrease in operating power consumption, and a 93 percent decrease in sleep power consumption, reaching an internationally leading level.
In addition, the graphics acceleration performance of the Huangshan 2S is up to 67 percent higher than its predecessor due to its 2.5D GPU, enabling it to independently and efficiently process graphics-related instructions, as well as making the operating system run more smoothly.
Huami Corp is based in Hefei National High-tech Industry Development Zone and has been investing in self-developed chips for its wearable devices. The company has participated in upstream and downstream chip industry since 2015, according to Huami Corp CEO Huang Wang.
