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.

As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacent...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...
Leading companies, from the Global Fortune 500 to the smallest companies, are adopting hybrid cloud as the path to business advantage. Hybrid cloud depends on cloud services and on-premises infrastructure working in unison.
