Monday, some of the industry’s top-notch editors, bloggers and analysts joined our TI team to hear Greg Delagi, SVP of the wireless business unit, share key OMAP processor advancements at MWC. Greg detailed OMAP 5 processor news, introduced our digital hub strategy, and announced two new partnerships – with Harman and iRobot. SlashGear and TechCrunch are two of the sites that provided great recaps of the event. We also wanted to post some photos if you weren’t able to make it to Barcelona or the event.
Greg recapped available mobile devices that are powered by TI’s OMAP 4 processor, and highlighted products from non-mobile markets where you can see the OMAP processor: MOTOACTV, QNX Porsche, Recon MOD Live Ski Googles and others.
Next, he introduced the developing space where TI knows the OMAP 5 processor will thrive: digital hubs. Digital hubs leverage the cloud for new experiences and business models, have a large server infrastructure, own a wide variety of content and ultimately play a vital role in SoC selection across a broad range of end equipments.
TI developed the OMAP 5 platform with these digital hubs in mind, and believes that the processor can exceed expectations when it comes to performance in these applications. Check out our previous post about this video, which Greg shared to prove the smart multicore advantage.
To close the event, Greg highlighted new markets and partnerships that will leverage the OMAP platform: Harman and iRobot. Harman will use the OMAP 5 processor to bring multimedia-rich experiences to auto infotainment systems, and iRobot will leverage the OMAP processor’s vision analytics to develop future robotic designs for the home.
We’ve had a great show thus far, and look forward to today and tomorrow on the floor! If you’re at MWC, come visit us and see all our demos in Hall 8, 8A84. If you aren’t in Barcelona, we have plenty of ways for you to get all of our updates: TI’s MWC site, Twitter and Facebook.
