ARM Cortex Microprocessors

Texas Instruments has launched the AM570x Sitara series of ARM processors, which are built to meet the intense processing needs of modern embedded products. They feature 28nm CMOS technology, up to 186 general purpose I/O (GPIO) pins, up to 512kB of on-chip L3 RAM, and a DDR3/DDR3L memory interface (EMIF) module that supports up to DDR3-1333 (667MHz). These devices also combine programmable video processing with a highly integrated peripheral set. Programmability is provided by a single-core ARM Cortex-A15 RISC CPU with Neon extensions and the company’s C66x VLIW floating-point DSP cores.
