TI OMAP 5 mobile platform of processors announced
Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) has announced the next gen of its popular OMAP family: the OMAP 5 mobile applications platform. This also includes a dual-core chip for smartphones / tablets - ARM Cortex-A15 MPCores, up to 2 GHz each. The TI OMAP 5 processor will also be able to support up to four cameras at once. The chip can record and play back S3D video in 1080p quality, and perform real-time conversion of 2D content to S3D at 1080p resolution.

According to the press release,
The 28 nanometer OMAP 5 applications processors carry on the OMAP family tradition of delivering significant increases in performance and functionality, while lowering power consumption compared to their predecessors. Specifically, they offer up to 3x processing performance and five-fold 3D graphics improvement, yet provide a nearly 60 percent average power reduction compared to a sample user experience on the OMAP 4 platform. Additionally, the OMAP 5 platform's software is designed for maximum reuse to ease migration from the OMAP 4 platform.

The OMAP 5 processor can support up to four cameras in parallel, as well as record and play back S3D video in 1080p quality, and perform real-time conversion of 2D content to S3D at 1080p resolution. The new processor can also deliver advanced short- and long-range gesturing applications, as well as full-body and multi-body interactive gestures, utilizing either 2D or S3D cameras. The OMAP 5 processor, coupled with a TI DLP Pico projector and a camera, can also enable interactive projection where the user can actually "touch and drag" projected images on both a table top or wall.

Additionally, the OMAP 5 processor can interface with and leverage a wide variety of sensor technologies to enable touchless sensing, such as proximity sensing, capacitive sensing and ultrasonic sensing.
