Q: I’m developing an application based on TI’s Digital Media and Davinci family of devices and saw that these were recently listed as NRND. I have some questions and need some support. Can you help me? Do you have alternatives to these processors?
A: Thanks for reaching out. The parts mentioned above are not recommended for new designs (NRND) and will have very limited support from TI, but will continue to be in production to support existing customers*. Please note that the Digital Media and Davinci family of devices were specifically designed for use in video-enabled applications, and we do have other recent processors that are designed to support a broad set of these applications. These newer processors are comprised of the AM57x family of devices. While they are not direct replacements for the various Digital Media and Davinci processors, we recommend evaluating the following devices(s) as potential alternatives:
Should you choose to continue your design with the Digital Media and Davinci device families, see below for product information and additional resources:
Each device’s product folder on TI.com includes more information on the part and lists available documentation and software:
You may also search the E2E forums for archived posts of previous discussions which may help address your questions.
Finally, for additional design support for your video applications design, you can reach out to one of the following third parties:
