Cortex-A8 core puts processors in new applications
Devices extend TI's wireless handset technology to mainstream customers reaching new markets, such as automotive, consumer, embedded and medical.
Four new OMAP processors, based on the market's first broad offering of the ARM Cortex-A8 core, offer a combination of laptop-like performance at handheld power levels in a single chip.
With more than four times the processing power of today's 300MHz ARM9 devices, the superscalar 600MHz Cortex-A8 core is integrated into four new OMAP35x applications processors for a wide range of possible applications, including portable navigation devices, Internet appliances and portable patient monitoring devices.
The new OMAP35x devices extend TI's proven, leading wireless handset technology to mainstream customers reaching new markets, such as automotive, consumer, embedded and medical.
The integrated, single-chip devices combine photorealistic graphics and TI's advanced video DSP technology, to offer the industry's best combination of integrated multicore processing capabilities in any single-chip combination.
These breakthrough applications processors are the most advanced processors of their kind available to the broad market, and they will allow original equipment manufacturers to redefine the standard for advanced user interfaces, web browsing, productivity and multimedia experience.
