Guangdong Nufront CSC has announced its NS2816M and NS115 chips for tablets, and a baseband chip for smartphones, the Telink7619. The company said the NS2816M is a high-performance tablet chip that makes Nufront the first China-based chip maker to mass produce such products to support Android 4.0, Cortex A9 dual-core, tablet platforms. The NS115 is the firm's third-generation dual-core platform.

Features such as energy consumption has been greatly improved, stated Nufront. The average energy consumption of the chip running at 1.5GHz is below 500mW. The Telink7619 is Nufront's first generation of WCDMA 3G baseband chip that adopts digital RF technology to help reduce chipset energy consumption by 30 percent compared to similar products that adopt analog RF, described the company.

The firm hopes to have more access to Taiwan-based customers to cooperate on tablet and other mobile devices. Nufront aims to combine Taiwan-based firms' strong design skills to develop superior products, the company added.

Nufront said it plans to cooperate more closely with firms in emerging markets such as India, Southeast Asia and South America. According to the firm, demand for tablets and other mobile devices has been strong in emerging markets and Nufront has been working closely with customers to develop products that can satisfy the particular demands of these markets such as costs, functionality and energy consumption. Nufront aims to create a unified platform that consists of both telecommunication and PC functions to meet the needs of various types of mobile smart products.
