Chinese Loongson processors infiltrate laser printers


The list of solutions of the Chinese company Loongson includes not only four- and eight-core processors for PCs and servers, but also a range of controllers for various kinds of complex electronics. They all use the same (within the same generation) computing architecture, which simplifies software support for solutions. One of the Chinese manufacturers took advantage of this by presenting a line of laser printers on the Loongson SoC.

Tianjin Optical Electrical Group, an electrical company, has recently launched several laser printers based on controllers from Chinese manufacturer Loongson, according to Chinese sources. A single-core Loongson 1C0300B chip with hardware data protection functions is used as controllers.

Tianjin Optical printers ship with drivers for one of the Chinese Linux builds of the local Kylin OS family, promoted by Loongson. This ensures, for example, that the printers are ready to work with compatible home PCs on the Loongson platform and beyond.

It should be added that the Loongson 1C0300B controller is a fairly powerful solution that includes a floating point processing unit. Based on it, you can make a device with support for many interesting functions, including multitasking and launching a platform with control over the Internet. In this case, data protection becomes a priority, which the Loongson 1C0300B controller should handle with ease.
