This system is designed for the highest performance at ultra-low power, using a differentiated smart multicore architecture honed by TI for more than a decade. The OMAP 4 platform’s smart multicore system uses two ARM Cortex-M3 cores to offload real-time control processing from the two main ARM Cortex-A9 CPU cores. It also relies on unique programmable accelerators—an embedded DSP, an imaging and vision IMX accelerator, and display controller—rather than hardwired accelerators to add flexibility and future-proofing to designs.
