The phyCORE-OMAP5430 SOM supports the Texas Instruments OMAP5430 processor designed for high performance application support while maintaining low power consumption. The multi-core ARM® Cortex™ processors and multi-core PowerVR™ SGX544-MPx graphics accelerators aid the phyCORE-OMAP5430 in achieving fast, high-quality image and video capture. The 240-pin SOM interconnect supports interfaces such as USB 3.0 and 2.0, HDMI, simultaneous cameras and displays, and pin compatibility for a seamless upgrade path from the phyCORE-OMAP4.

The phyCORE-OMAP5430 System on Module

The OMAP5 Processor Family

The Texas Instruments' OMAP5 processor is an advanced architecture which includes a dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A15 MPCore™ foundation complemented by dual-core ARM® Cortex™-M4 processors for low-power offload and real-time responsiveness. Multi-core PowerVR™ SGX544-MPx graphics accelerators drive 3D gaming and user interfaces, while other features include a dedicated 2D graphics engine, IVA-HD hardware accelerators for full HD and 3D, and high performance peripheral interfaces.
