Sitara ARM® Cortex™-A8 and ARM9® Microprocessors


New 1GHz Sitara™ Cortex™-A8 processors for low-power, high-performance

Sitara ChipAM3715 & AM3703, two new Cortex-A8 Sitara™ microprocessors that deliver up to 1GHz ARM performance while providing low power operation. These MPUs are suitable for a wide variety of applications, such as portable data terminals, portable medical equipment, home and building automation, navigation systems, smart displays and human machine interaction (HMI) industrial interfaces and other applications which require high-performance, low-power processing capabilities. Offering a nearly 40 percent increase in ARM performance, double the 3D graphics performance, and lowering power by up to when compared to previous generations. A complete suite of software, demos and development tools complement the scalability of the AM37x hardware and software to further reduce customers’ time to market

AM37x key features include:

  • 1GHz Cortex-A8 with Neon co-processor, delivering up to 2000 DMIPs
  • Multiple operating points allow for application optimization (power/performance)
  • Twice the Graphics Performance (AM3715 Only)
  • Up to a 30 percent decrease in power consumption
  • Complete software support packages compatible with previous processors including AM35x and OMAP35x
  • Multiple device packages optimized for space and layout flexibility
  • Key peripherals: USB HS Host x3, USB 2.0 OTG, MMC/SD card interface x3, 1.8V input/output and display subsystem with LCD controller and dual 10-bit DACs
