Texas Instruments announces plans for Cortex A15-based OMAP 5
posted by Victor H. / Sep 28, 2012, 2:19 AM
The fifth-generation OMAP is based on the Cortex-A15 architecture and samples will ship to vendors as soon as today, with actual devices with expected to arrive early next year.
The TI OMAP 5 chip is designed for a 28nm manufacturing process and is made out of two ARM Cortex A15 cores, two Cortex M4s and SGX544 MP2 graphics.
Currently, Nvidia and Qualcomm are the two biggest chip companies in the industry, along with Samsung and Apple who apart from devices also make their own chips. ST-Ericsson is probably the fifth biggest company rounding up the list of largest chip makers now that TI OMAP could be counted out.
Most recently, the industry switched to 28nm/32nm manufacturing technology for chips which makes them both smaller and more battery-savvy. Qualcomm was the first to make the jump to 28nm with its Snapdragon S4 which was also the first platform with integrated LTE.

Awesome. I can't wait to see what will come out of this chipset! Our only hope is that this chipset becomes a success and TI perhaps reconsiders leaving the mobile phone market. I disagree with their decision to pull the plug on manufacturing mobile chipsets and actually do not understand how they came to the conclusion that they were unsuccessful in the marketplace. Google chose their chipset for it's Galaxy Nexus device and Motorola has a longtime history of choosing TI chipsets.

I think, compared to other manufacturer's offering, TI's OMAP is cheaper yet powerful enough to compete with others. And the graphics processors are awesome. Also, it's developers-friendly processor because there's a lot of support coming from TI. *based on my own opinion, you can correct me if i'm wrong :)

I am so relieved. The 5430 goes into my dreamphone and the 5432 goes into my dream tablet. I really hope they have amazing sales sms reconsider leaving the mobile processor business. I think they still have lots to offer.
