Texas Instruments introduces single-core AM389x Sitara ARM MPUs

Linux, Microsoft Windows Embedded Compact 7 and Android compatible

By CBR Staff Writer

Texas Instruments has expanded its portfolio of Sitara ARM microprocessors (MPUs) with the introduction of new AM389x Sitara ARM MPUs for system integration applications.

The single-core ARM Cortex-A8 MPUs with performance at up to 1.5 GHz integrate peripherals and can be used for applications such as single-board computers, gateways, routers, servers, industrial automation, human machine interfaces and point-of-service data terminals.

The two new devices in the AM389x MPU generation are the AM3892 and the AM3894, both packed with several high-bandwidth integrated peripherals, including PCIExpress Gen2, SATA 2.0, dual Gigabit Ethernet and dual DDR2/DDR3 interfaces, the company said.

The new MPUs enable faster end products to run multiple applications simultaneously for multiple operating systems, such as Linux, Microsoft Windows Embedded Compact 7 and Android.

The company claims that because all of these peripherals are integrated on-chip, they save printed circuit board (PCB) space and can reduce bill of materials (BOM) cost while allowing customers to include more features into smaller form-factor end equipment.

The AM3892 and AM3894 Sitara ARM MPUs offer an on-chip display engine allowing output of two different streams of content for dual, simultaneous high-resolution displays, while the AM3894 Sitara ARM MPU features a 3D graphics accelerator.

The new Sitara ARM MPUs are supported by a single hardware evaluation module and a single TI EZ Software Development Kit, enabling customers in quickly evaluating and begin development of their devices.
