Processor Allows Growth for Portable, HD Video Applications
Texas Instruments Incorporated announced their DaVinci processor with ARM host control and complete development tools. Tuned for applications such as digital cameras, IP video cameras, digital photo frames and video baby monitors, the DM355 processor consists of an integrated video processing subsystem, an MPEG-4-JPEG co-processor (MJCP), an ARM926EJ-S core and peripherals. The corresponding development tool, the DM355 Digital Video Evaluation Module (DVEVM), will help developers create low-cost portable, digital video devices with HD video capability. The processor is available in clock speeds of 216 MHz or 270 MHz, which allows for a scalable line of products. Likewise, developers can re-use intellectual property from the robust DaVinci technology portfolio or leverage IP from the open-source resources for ARM-based processing to speed them throughout the development process. Other applications that will benefit from implementing the DM355 include commercial products, such as medical imaging, ultra low-cost digital video recorders and portable test equipment. Pricing starts at less then $10.
