STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN: Enea has announced support for Texas Instruments’ OMAP-L138 applications processor.
As the only embedded systems vendor offering realtime operating systems (RTOS) for both microprocessors and digital signal processors (DSPs), Enea is uniquely positioned to deliver a comprehensive software platform for System-on-Chip devices like the OMAP-L138.
The solution features the Enea OSE RTOS for ARM926EJ-S, Enea OSE® compact kernel RTOS optimized for TI’s C6000 DSPs; Enea LINX, for Interprocess communication; Enea dSPEED, a system level field debug and management framework and Enea Optima development suite.
For developers building low power applications with the TI OMAP-L138, the Enea solution provides a complete, production ready and fully supported system development environment based on a single programming model (API) and tools across all cores – reducing complexity, and accelerating development.
“Enea software has been designed from the ground up for multicore and System-on-Chip environments like TI’s OMAP-L138,” said Mathias Båth, senior vice president of marketing at Enea. “By integrating our highly optimized and proven-in-use OSE technology for TI’s ARM and C6000 DSPs into a single consistent runtime and tools platform, customers will get a clear advantage in terms of accelerated development, integration and debugging of highly reliable and performance critical applications on the OMAP-L138”
“With Enea’s new solution based on TI’s OMAP-L138 applications processor, customers immediately gain the powerful operation system support they need,” said Joy Ji, OMAP-L1x product line marketing manager, TI. “Enea’s software platform will help OMAP-L138 developers achieve the integration, programmability and debugging ease that they require on the processor’s DSP and ARM cores.”
TI’s OMAP-L138 is a low-power applications processor based on an ARM926EJ-S and a TMS320C674x DSP core. It is designed to allow OEMs to quickly bring to market devices requiring robust operating system 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 fixed/floating point DSP and Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC) technologies for optimal performance and programming flexibility.
“The comprehensive software solution that we are announcing today is already receiving attention from OEMs,” said Per Åkerberg, president and CEO at Enea. “In fact, we have recently closed a design win in the communications infrastructure market. This clearly illustrates the value of having a common software model across all the processing cores on an advanced application processor like TI’s OMAP-L138.”
