Even though Texas Instruments might be moving away from creating consumer products, it hasn’t stopped the company developing and releasing six new industrial development boards this week.
The new industrial development boards are based on the Texas Instruments OMAP 5 ARM Cortex-A15 processor, and have been designed for developers looking to create and design industrial devices and systems.
The OMAP 5 architecture has been designed to keep its power consumption low but allow the performance from ARM’s Cortex-A15 processor to flourish. Debasish ‘Ron’ Nag, manager of Texas Instruments’s OMAP industrial business explains:
“Texas Instruments is committed to the expansion of OMAP processors into industrial applications that require long product life cycles, extended temperature and reliability, and real-time control and communication,”-
“Our OMAP 5 processors meet rigorous industrial requirements and come backed by a support model that ensures protection and longevity of customers’ investments, solidified by our commitment to ship devices for 10 years following production. We are proud to work with top SoM vendors to ease and speed industrial designs.”
