Texas Instruments extends OMAP(TM) 3 family with 45-nm products to address a broad range of mobile performance needs

Barcelona, Spain | Posted on February 16th, 2009

To answer handset manufacturers' diverse requirements in the rapidly-evolving Smartphone and Mobile Internet Device (MID) markets, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) announced today that it has extended its popular OMAP(TM) 3 family with new 45-nanometer (nm) products. The new OMAP36x application processor family allows mobile device manufacturers to reuse their software investment in TI's popular 65-nm OMAP34x processor family and deliver higher performance computing with lower power consumption. The OMAP36x family of products will offer a range of performance levels, including speeds up to 1GHz, to address increased high performance needs of the MID market all while delivering the low power consumption required by these battery-powered products. The migration to 45-nm technology will also deliver more affordable solutions for mainstream Smartphones. (Visit www.ti.com/omap36x for more information.)

Features and benefits of OMAP36x family:

* 45-nm CMOS process technology delivers higher performance with lower power consumption versus the OMAP34x family, including an approximately 25% reduction in power and 75% improvement in graphics performance. * Robust multi-tasking platform that supports running multiple applications in parallel by simultaneously exercising the CPU, multimedia performance and 2D/3D graphics engines. * Dedicated 2D/3D graphics hardware accelerator, enabling more immersive user interfaces and compelling graphics for applications like realistic 3D gaming. * Smart pixel technology via OpenGL ES 2.0 delivers stunning imaging capabilities through advanced reflection effects and life-like facial features. * Supports multi-standard 720p HD functionality for HD video recording and playback. * Integrated image signal processor (ISP) supporting up to 12 megapixel (MP) imaging for enhanced photographic image quality and fast shot-to-shot camera performance. * Pre-integrated support for mobile connectivity, including TI's current and future combo WiLink(TM) Wi-Fi solutions, NaviLink(TM) GPS solutions, and BlueLink(TM) Bluetooth(R) solutions.
