Texas Instruments' SMOMAPL138B is a low-power applications processor based on an ARM926EJ-S™ and a C674x DSP core. It provides significantly lower power requirements than other members of the TMS320C6000™ platform of DSPs. This device enables OEMs and ODMs to quickly bring to market devices featuring robust operating systems support, rich user interfaces, and high processing performance life through the maximum flexibility of a fully integrated mixed processor solution.
The dual-core architecture of the device provides the benefits of both DSP and Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC) technologies, incorporating a high-performance TMS320C674x DSP core and an ARM926EJ-S core. The ARM926EJ-S is a 32-bit RISC processor core that performs 32-bit or 16-bit instructions and processes 32-bit, 16-bit, or 8-bit data.
