TI Samples Latest DaVinci Processor for Digital Video

Texas Instruments began sampling its latest system-on-chip (SoC) based on DaVinci technology designed for delivering high-quality video for portable audio and video applications, including portable media players (PMPs), consumer video security devices, medical devices, data terminals, IP netcams, automotive/in-flight entertainment systems and other digital audio and video applications. It delivers video performance of H.264, MPEG 2, MPEG 4 or VC-1, among others, at 30 frames per second combined with power efficient optimizations.

The DM6441 is a dual-core SoC that consists of an ARM9 and TMS320C64x+ digital signal processor (DSP) core plus video/imaging co-processors. With dual power modes the DM6441 can run at full speed (513 MHz DSP and 256 MHz ARM) at 1.2 V or in power-reduced mode (405 MHz DSP and 202 MHz ARM) at 1.05 V.

The DM6441 for portable audio and video applications is sampling now and it is $24.95 each in quantities of 10,000.
