OMAP3525 and OMAP3530 high-performance, applications processors 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
- 3D mobile gaming
- Video conferencing
- High-resolution still image
The device supports high-level operating systems (OSs), such as:
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
- IVA2.2 subsystem with a C64x+ digital signal processor (DSP) core
- POWERVR SGX™ subsystem for 3D graphics acceleration to support display and gaming effects
- 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/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&trade 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
OMAP25 and OMAP3530 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.
Table 1-1 lists the differences between the CBB, CBC, and CUS packages.
