CPUs: Three new OMAP35x CPUs target graphics/video subsystems

Houston, Texas – Texas Instruments (TI) today announced availability of three OMAP35x chips feature a 600 MHz ARM Cortex-A8 to supplement the ARM CPU with a 2-D/3-D graphics subsystem, a video subsystem or both.

Like the previously-released OMAP3503, the OMAP3515, OMAP3525 and OMAP3530 are designed for use in graphics subsystems using the Power VR SGX530 rendering engine from Imagination Technologies.

This Open GL ES 2.0-compatible engine is capable of rendering 14 MPolys/sec. The video subsystem features a 430 MHz C64x+ DSP and various video accelerators.

Capable of handling high-definition (HD) video, it can decode MPEG-4 at up to 720p resolution. The video subsystem is the same as the one in the DaVinciproduct line, and the OMAP35x and DaVinci families run the same audio/video codec engine.

The OMAP3503, OMAP3515, OMAP3525 and OMAP3530 applications processors are now available in 100 units for $25.95, $29.23, $43.49 and $48.34.
