The first tablets built on the Russian Skif processor will appear in 2022, and mass production of devices should begin a year later, RBC reports.
According to the publication, the Research and Production Center “Electronic Computing and Information Systems” (SPC “Elvis”), which produces Skif processors, is suitable for use not only in smartphones and tablets, but also in “smart” cameras, telecommunications infrastructure, autonomous robotic systems and industrial automation.
The release of Russian tablets at Skif is scheduled for 2022. By the middle of next year, the ICL company should show its device, by the end of the year – “BytErg”. Both companies intend to start serial production of tablets at Skif no earlier than 2023.
According to its characteristics, the Skif processor, according to Anton Semiletov, the head of the Elvis Scientific and Production Center, will correspond to the level of the processors of the iPhone 6 smartphone and the iPad Air tablet. Apple devices, we recall, were presented in 2014 and 2013, respectively.
