TI Samples New OMAP2 Processor

TI announced it is sampling a new OMAP2430 OMAP2-based processor for 3G mobile phones that is claimed to boost video performance by up to 4X and imaging performance by up to 1.5X.

Additionally, TI announced the TWL4030, an all-in-one audio/power management device designed specifically for mobile phones. It combines TI's SmartReflex-compliant voltage regulators and converters, an audio/voice codec, class-AB/D audio amplifiers, high-speed USB2.0 OTG transceiver, and battery charger circuitry.

The OMAP2430 includes TI's latest imaging, video and audio accelerator, the IVA2, a power-optimized version of the signal processing technology used in TI's recently announced DaVinci technology. IVA2 enables integration of new codec standards, codec enhancements, and stabilization algorithms for flexibility and differentiation. The IVA2 engine is software compatible with the DaVinci technology.

Based on TI's low leakage 90nm CMOS technology, the OMAP2430 integrates an ARM1136 RISC processor core and dedicated 2D/3D graphics hardware acceleration, in addition to the IVA2 engine. System hardware support includes a high-speed USB2.0 On-the-Go (OTG) interface. The imaging subsystem supports both parallel and serial cameras and LCDs for design flexibility.

The OMAP2430 manages secure downloadable media streaming and playback, digital video recording, still image capture, video teleconferencing and 3D gaming; supports DVD resolution decode up to 30fps for MPEG4 and Windows Media Video 9 formats, and up to 30fps VGA resolution decode for H.264 and RealVideo 10. Support for Windows Media Video 9 and H.264.

OMAP2430 is available in sample quantities now, with production scheduled for the third quarter of 2006. The TWL4030 will sample by end of 2005 with production scheduled for third quarter 2006.
