The OMAP 5 platform includes applications processors with supporting wireless connectivity, power management, battery management and audio management devices for next-generation Smartphones, Tablets, and other mobile devices. Strong open source software for the platform is available to introduce products to market faster.
The OMAP 5 advanced multi-core architecture includes a variety of cores, including ARMŽ general-purpose processors, multiple graphics cores and several application-specific processors for a balance of programmability, performance and power.
There are two OMAP 5 devices targeted to serve different customers' needs. Both of these devices use a TI-defined, low-power 28 nanometer fabrication process.
The OMAP5430 is targeted for products such as Smartphones that demand the smallest size supporting dual-channel, LPDDR2 Package-on-Package (PoP) memory.
The OMAP5432 is targeted for mobile computing and consumer products that are more cost-sensitive, without the extreme size constraint, supporting dual-channel DDR3/DDR3L memory.
