Building on its rich heritage of collaboration with ARM, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) today confirmed that it was the first company to partner with ARM in the conception and definition of the next generation ARM® Cortex - a series processor core (also known as ‘Eagle’) to be announced later this year. TI intends to use the new processor to further strengthen and extend its future OMAP™ platform offerings.

TI formally engaged with ARM on this project in June 2009, establishing an advanced lead partnership. During this time, TI leveraged its low power, system-on-chip (SoC) platform expertise with ARM to advance the processor core’s definition. This engagement accelerates TI’s ability to get to market early with high-performance OMAP products based on the new ARM processor core, following up on its popular OMAP 4 platform that uses the powerful Cortex-A9 processor core. The partnership’s efforts also reiterate TI’s commitment to spearheading high-performance, low-power mobile advances.

TI aims to raise the bar in high-performance, power-efficient computing with upcoming OMAP platform solutions intended to radically transform devices while enriching the mobile lifestyle. Using its unique SmartReflex’ power and performance management technology, TI believes it can deliver SoCs with industry-leading low power consumption. As a result, TI OMAP platform solutions based on the new ARM processor core and SmartReflex will meet the mobile market’s demand for intense performance capabilities and low power consumption. TI also believes that the new ARM processor core has the potential for broader market application across TI’s product portfolio.
