Texas Instruments Unmatched connectivity options with new power-efficient processors

Connected, energy-efficient designs require high levels of peripheral integration, lower heat dissipation and longer battery life.
Discover the newly released processors from TI and their supporting development tools.
Product Highlights
OMAP-L138 and TMS320C674x-based processors offer balance of power-efficiency and performance for greener industrial and communication products.

Packed with a unique combination of application-tuned features and peripherals, TI is offering four new processors TMS320C6742, TMS320C6746, TMS320C6748, OMAP-L138 with unmatched connectivity options and fixed- and floating-point capabilities. With standby power nine times lower than current floating-point DSP solutions on the market, these products offer the ability to manage on-chip power through dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) and multiple power down modes.
To ease and reduce development time, the new offerings are
pin-for-pin compatible with each other, code compatible with all TMS320C6000™ devices and complemented by a low-cost experimenter board and full evaluation module(EVM).

  • Industry’s lowest-power floating-point DSP with 7mW of standby power at 1.0V/25 Degrees C and 420mW total power depending on use case scenarios
  • Connectivity capabilities includes an integrated Serial ATA port and a Universal Parallel Port (uPP)
  • EMAC, multimedia card/secure digital (MMC/SD) and
    high-speed USB 2.0/1.1 for desktop, network or portable connectivity or storage
  • Multiple operating points enabled through DVFS powering off unused peripherals and selectable I/O voltages to enable portability or reduce heat dissipation in products
  • TI’s TPS65070 power management device implements all sequence and default options and complementary analog components help complete system designs
  • Pin-for-pin compatibility across all four devices for scalable product-line development
  • 128 to 448 KB on-chip memory to reduce external memory access and power usage

Application Example
Intelligent Occupancy Sensing (IOS) is a new vision-based method of detecting and counting the number of people in given area, and end equipments then use this information to appropriately adjust conditions, such as the lighting or room temperature. See how to achieve power-efficient design with the OMAP-L138 in an IOS system. Other applications that take advantage these new devices include Oscilloscope and Software Defined Radio (SDR).
