New OMAP™ 5 processor-based modules spur easier, faster industrial designs

Modules bring dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A15 prowess to systems that demand high-performance processing, rigorous real-time time control, advanced graphics, and fanless low power

DALLAS, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Expanding the OMAP™ processor footprint in embedded applications, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN), together with six leading system-on-module (SoM) vendors, today introduced OMAP 5 processor-based modules designed to simplify and speed industrial development. Based on a dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A15 architecture which is complemented by an integrated DSP, dual Cortex-M4 cores and various on-chip accelerators, TI's OMAP 5 platform supports next-generation industrial applications such as point of service, portable data terminals and more. Select modules are on display this week at Electronica, in TI's booth (#420 in Hall A4).

"TI is committed to the expansion of OMAP processors into industrial applications that require long product life cycles, extended temperature and reliability, and real-time control and communication," said Debasish 'Ron' Nag, manager of TI's OMAP industrial business. "Our OMAP 5 processors meet rigorous industrial requirements and come backed by a support model that ensures protection and longevity of customers' investments, solidified by our commitment to ship devices for 10 years following production. We are proud to work with top SoM vendors to ease and speed industrial designs."

The new OMAP 5 processor-based modules build on TI's more than 50 years of industrial experience, and optimized solutions based on Sitara™ ARM Cortex-A8, OMAP 4 and multicore processors, all of which are designed into industrial applications today. With the new OMAP 5 processor-based modules, industrial developers now have a greater range of ARM-based development options for solutions that require high-performance processing, real-time time control, advanced graphics, and fanless low power.

OMAP 5 processors: Higher performance for industrial systems
The OMAP 5 architecture keeps power levels low to decrease utility costs and brings the best of ARM's Cortex-A15 performance to advanced industrial systems, delivering:

  • Dual ARM Cortex-A15 MPcores for high-performance application processing
  • Dual Cortex-M4 cores for efficient task offloading and power optimization  
  • Integrated DSP for flexible, high-performance, real-time processing analytics and control
  • On-chip accelerators for vision, full-HD video (1080p) and 2D/3D graphics
  • Industrial temperature qualification (-40 to +85°C)

New OMAP 5 processor-based modules
The new OMAP 5 processor based modules are expected to be available to select customers in first quarter 2013 from TI's SoM vendors. For sales information and complete details, please visit the following links:

Each leveraging unique features and benefits, the space-optimized OMAP 5 processor modules meet the industrial field's tight security and design implementations, and are optimized to work with TI's analog, connectivity and embedded solutions for more robust designs. Support and engineering resources available through TI's SoM vendors help manufacturers focus on design differentiation to quickly deploy game-changing industrial offerings.
