At the heart of the OMAP 4 platform is a powerful system-on-chip that includes the perfect balance of power efficiency and high performance. The OMAP 4 processor balances processing across four main engines: a programmable multimedia engine based on TI’s C64x DSP and power-efficient, multi-format hardware accelerators; general-purpose processing based on the dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ supporting symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) and capable of speeds of more than 1 GHz per core; a high-performance programmable graphics engine; and an Image Signal Processor (ISP) for unparalleled video and imaging performance. The OMAP 4 family includes two applications processors, both based on the dual-core Cortex-A9 MPCore general purpose processors: the OMAP4430 operates at up to 1 GHz, while the OMAP4460 operates at up to 1+ GHz. Both processors offer the full variety of subsystems and applications discussed below to deliver hardware and software system solutions that scale across customer roadmaps optimizing time to market, flexibility and R&D efficiency.
