TI's OMAP Processor Selected As A Development Platform For Windows CE 6 Beta

Texas Instruments announced that Microsoft has selected TI's OMAP2420 applications processor as the first ARM11-based development platform for its Windows CE 6 beta release distributed this week to device makers worldwide. A Board Support Package for TI's OMAP2420 processor will be integrated into the Windows CE 6 Platform Builder toolkit. TI's OMAP2420 processor, which has shipped in millions of devices to date, will be the first ARM11-based solution that supports Windows CE 6, with a roadmap to include future OMAP processors.

The new OMAP2420 platform for Windows CE 6, expected to be available later this year, is well suited for richer multimedia and low power applications including portable navigation devices, media players, remote monitoring equipment and gaming devices. This platform showcases the next-generation features and capabilities of the redesigned Microsoft Windows CE 6 kernel on TI's ARM11-based OMAP 2 platform, which will benefit a wide range of device manufacturers designing on the OMAP 2 family of processors.

The OMAP2420 processor is built on TI's OMAP 2 "All-in-One" mobile entertainment architecture, which provides the foundation for mobile device manufacturers to merge today's high-end consumer electronics in smartphones and other converged portable multimedia devices. These processors enable high-quality digital TV, Hi-Fi music with 3D effects, DVD-quality video, high-end gaming functionality, digital cameras up to 6 megapixels, analog and digital broadcast reception, high-speed wireless connectivity, greater than VGA resolution color LCD displays and more.

The OMAP2420 processor also provides enhanced power and performance management through TI's SmartReflex solutions that incorporate a range of intelligent and adaptive hardware and software technologies that dynamically control voltage, frequency and power based on device activity, modes of operation and process and temperature variation.

TI's OMAP2420 stand-alone application processor is the first device in the marketplace to leverage the ARM11 micro-architecture and is TI's second generation of OMAP processors to use 90-nanometer technology. The OMAP2420 chip includes an ARM1136JS-F core, a TI programmable audio DSP, a TI imaging and video accelerator (IVA), a 2D/3D graphics accelerator offering up to 2 million polygons per second, integrated camera interface, M-Shield hardware-based security solution and more. The OMAP2420 processor is powering handsets on the market today.
