Scalability and Compatibility are Crucial for Wide Display Support

Scalability and compatibility of designs across automotive platforms give cluster system designers the flexibility to address ever-changing market requirements during all phases of development. The suite of intelligent peripherals and common architecture across TMS470 devices allows for more efficient development and an overall reduced system cost. In addition, theability to use a single graphics library on all devices for image rendering offers developers the same look and feel at the API level across processors.This feature ensures that developers' graphics software is extremely scalable from low- to high-end clusters, helping reduce time to market and developmentcosts. The TMS470 MCU instrument cluster platform is also pin-for-pincompatible for reduced hardware redesign.

Silicon and Tools Availability

Developers can start designing with TMS470 MCUs, OMAP or DaVinci DM64xprocessors today with evaluation modules, starter kits and demonstration platforms along with compatible software from TI and leading third parties,including Lauterbach, iSYSTEMS, TES, Altia, Sophia, ETAS, and Vector.Automotive manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers can obtain pricing, hardware and software tools pricing from their local TI sales office. TMS470PLFx and OMAP33x devices are available in samples today with the DaVinci DM64x processors available in fourth quarter 2006.

Broadening Portfolio of Innovation and Leadership in AutomotiveApplications

TI processors have a history of leadership and innovation in the automotive industry. TI's TMS470 MCU, for example, is used in the vastmajority of automotive safety systems around the world such antilock braking systems and airbag electronics, while TI's leading digital signal processors offer innovative solutions for infotainment, navigation, and electronic driveassist. The TI automotive portfolio extends into mixed signal solutions integrating analog-, power-, digital-circuits, as well as embedded processors.

TI is committed to the automotive market, providing OEMs and system suppliers with a broad digital and analog portfolio of superior-quality,reliable, innovative and cost-effective solutions. TI products address electronics in the car for systems ranging from power train to braking toaudio and infotainment. The company has achieved ISO/TS16949:2002certification at 36 facilities worldwide.
