Description

devices are based on the enhanced OMAP 3 architecture.

The OMAP 3 architecture is designed to provide best-in-class video, image, and graphics processing sufficient to support the following:

  • Streaming video
  • Video conferencing
  • High-resolution still image

The device supports high-level operating systems (HLOSs), such as:

  • Linux®
  • Windows® CE
  • Android™

This OMAP device includes state-of-the-art power-management techniques required for high-performance mobile products.

The following subsystems are part of the device:

  • Microprocessor unit (MPU) subsystem based on the ARM Cortex-A8 microprocessor
  • PowerVR SGX subsystem for 3D graphics acceleration to support display (OMAP35 device only)
  • Camera image signal processor (ISP) that supports multiple formats and interfacing options connected to a wide variety of image sensors
  • Display subsystem with a wide variety of features for multiple concurrent image manipulation, and a programmable interface supporting a wide variety of displays. The display subsystem also supports NTSC and PAL video out.
  • Level 3 (L3) and level 4 (L4) interconnects that provide high-bandwidth data transfers for multiple initiators to the internal and external memory controllers and to on-chip peripherals

The device also offers:

  • A comprehensive power- and clock-management scheme that enables high-performance, low-power operation, and ultralow-power standby features. The device also supports SmartReflex adaptative voltage control. This power-management technique for automatic control of the operating voltage of a module reduces the active power consumption.
  • Memory-stacking feature using the package-on-package (POP) implementation (CBB and CBC packages only)

OMAP35 devices are available in a 515-pin s-PBGA package (CBB suffix), 515-pin s-PBGA package (CBC suffix), and a 423-pin s-PBGA package (CUS suffix). Some features of the CBB and CBC packages are not available in the CUS package. (See Table 1-1 for package differences).
