New processors from Texas Instruments for portable electronics

May 2, 2008, 3:07 am

   Company Texas Instruments announced the release of new integrated circuits family OMAP35x - public processors are three models:OMAP3515, OMAP3525 and OMAP3530, all three are based on the kernel ARM Cortex-A8 (OMAP architecture 3), operates at a frequency of 600 MHz. According to the manufacturer, new items offer excellent performance at low power that allows the use of these products as processors for portable electronic devices. The main difference same options OMAP3515, OMAP3525 and OMAP3530 - presence/lack of support Open GL ES 2. 0 and digital signal processor TMS320C64x.
If you believe the manufacturer promises, the new items are to date the best in its class chips to perform the following tasks:processing streaming video, working with two-and three-dimensional graphics in mobile games, work with high-resolution images, video capture when mobile devices 2 in networks. 5G and 3G. In doing so, expresses support for operating systems Windows CE, Symbian OS, Linux, Palm OS.
Among the additional modules, which are equipped with representatives of the family OMAP35x include:microprocessor module itself, graphics subsystem to work with 2D/3D- graphics, signal processor for processing data from sensors images (supports both CCD, and CMOS-chips), support the broad range of displays for mobile devices, with the possibility of working with signals standards NTSC/PAL.
The main characteristics of processors OMAP3515, OMAP3525 and OMAP3530:

  • CPU core of ARM Cortex-A8;
  • clock frequency of 600 MHz;
  • 2D/3D- graphics accelerator (for models OMAP3515 and OMAP3530);
  • 16 Kb teams cache, 16 KB data cache;
  • cache of 256 KB L2;
  • 112 Kb ROM;
  • 64 Kb SRAM-shared memory;
  • signal processor for image processing, support-type sensors CCD and CMOS;
  • subsystem support displays:work with the 24 - bit RGB color, two 10 - DAC-bit converter, the possibility of rotation of images from the 90, 180 and 270 degrees, changing the size of pictures - from 1/4 to 8 - fold , 8 - bit alpha pair of flowers;
  • support the findings of 188 interfaces to support input/output;
  • to manufacture 65 - nm CMOS-technology.
