DALLAS, May 21, 2013

DALLAS, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Helping developers jumpstart their
product designs, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today
introduced its OMAP5432 processor-based evaluation module (EVM) for
high-performance industrial applications. TI's OMAP5432 EVM enables quick,
easy evaluation and benchmarking for applications demanding high-performance
processing and graphics at low power, including human machine interface (HMI),
portable data terminals (PDT), digital signage and medical monitoring end
equipment.

Based on the dual-1.5GHz ARM® Cortex™-A15 MPCore™, the OMAP5432 EVM has the
performance to make applications run faster than ever. At $329 USD, it is a
cost-effective tool to prototype software, evaluate applications and benchmark
designs. The EVM gives customers easy access to key interfaces such as
Ethernet, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, HDMI, audio I/O and SATA, as well as expansion
ports for multiple display and camera options. It hosts power management and
thermal management frameworks, which enable fanless operation across a wide
variety of applications. The tool is also equipped with a customized,
companion power management integrated circuit (PMIC), the TWL6040 audio codec.

"Our OMAP5432 EVM allows customers to quickly evaluate their applications on a
device that has the multimedia and graphics expected from the OMAP™ platform
and the processing power needed for industrial applications," said Dennis
Rauschmayer, marketing manager, OMAP products, TI. "TI's ecosystem of modules
based on the OMAP 5 architecture and design partners help industrial customers
move quickly from evaluation to production reducing development cost and
speeding time to market."

To further accelerate evaluation, TI provides customers with key high-level
operating systems and real-time operating systems options such as Android,
Green Hills Software, Linux and QNX, which are available for download. This
broad set of operating systems provides options to customers related to
real-time control, safety, robustness and multimedia frameworks to service a
wide variety of applications including digital signage, medical monitoring,
PDTs, HMIs and motor controls. With all of this flexibility, customers can
choose a solution that best fits their needs. For more information on software
availability, click here.

Moving designs from evaluation to production
After customers prototype and benchmark their designs using the OMAP5432 EVM,
they can choose from multiple OMAP543x processor-based modules available
through TI's hardware partners to speed product development. These are
available through leading system-on-module (SoM) and single board computer
(SBC) vendors, including: Embedded++ (EPP-Pico-OMAP5430 module), Phytec
(phyCORE-OMAP5430 SoM module), SECO (μQ7-OMAP5 module) and Variscite
(VAR-SOM-OM54 module).

In addition, TI's integrated design house (IDH) partners and TI Design Network
software members are available to customize hardware designs to meet customer
needs or provide software services from component level optimizations to
system integration and application development.

Pricing and availability
Developers can purchase TI's OMAP5432 EVM for $329 USD through SVTronics
today.
