OMAP1710 Processor

The OMAP1710 processor is a single-chip applications processor that supports all cellular standards, and complements any modem or chipset and any air interface. It is intended for high-volume wireless handset manufacturers and is not available through distributors.

First multimedia applications processor using TI’s advanced 90 nanometer (nm) process technology
The OMAP1710 device offers up to 40 percent improvement in performance for a variety of mobile applications, while consuming as little as half the power of current TI application processors. The OMAP1710 processor leverages the same software environment as all OMAP chips, enabling application developers and cell phone designers to completely reuse and build upon existing software.

OMAP multi-engine architecture
Built on TI’s industry-proven OMAP multi-engine architecture, the OMAP1710 processor is designed to handle a variety of application tasks in parallel, so a user can enjoy several features and services concurrently. This unique multi-engine approach ensures an active multimedia application will not be interrupted or degraded when a separate application, such as an operating system control task, is launched or running simultaneously.

Additional enhancements include:

  • Superior software flexibility
  • Improved multimedia and graphics performance
  • Integrated hardware and software security features
  • High-performance camera interface
  • Enhanced peripherals
  • Ultra-low standby power consumption

The OMAP1710 processor engines include an ARM™ processor, a TI DSP engine, as well as a range of software and hardware accelerators for video encode and decode, still picture compression, Java™ and security. TI’s unique advanced security hardware provides a secure execution environment that enables developers to deliver more secure wireless devices required mobile operators. TI’s security hardware also offers an ideal platform to address the security threats faced by phone manufacturers and carriers today such as preventing the loading of unauthorized software and protecting sensitive data such as the phone’s identity.

Optimized for Wireless Handsets
The OMAP1710 device is software compatible with previous OMAP applications processors, offering easy migration for applications developers and handset manufacturers and optimal software flexibility and performance with support for advanced mobile operating systems: Linux®, Microsoft’s Windows Mobile™, Nucleus, and Symbian OS.

Robust Ecosystem
Like all of TI’s current OMAP processors, the OMAP1710 is supported by the OMAP Developer Network of leading wireless software application developers and the network of independent OMAP Technology Centers providing development support services. The new OMAP1710 processor ensures OMAP developers easy access to open programming interfaces and development tools to take full advantage of OMAP processor performance.
