SomIQ benefits:

  • SomIQ modules are designed to increase reliability and MTBF because because they get heating less. Less heating means lower aging of components on modules. Modules are made on the strengthened printed-circuit boards with 1 oz copper thickness.
  • SomIQ modules are pin-to-pin compatible throughout the family with minor differences because of different processor features.

Processors DM3730 and DM3725 offer the high-performance Texas Instruments image video and audio accelerator (IVA2.2), based on the TMS320DMC64X+ VLIW digital signal processor (DSP) core. This fixed point DSP can handle upto eihgt 32-bit instructions per cycle optimizing the performance and power consumption. DSP supports 260, 520, 660 and 800-MHz operation with dynamic frequency scaling. To accelerate software development Texas Instruments offers ready to use libraries to support video codecs: H.264-BP, H.264-MP/HP, JPEG, MPEG2-MP, MPEG4-SP, VC1; audio-codecs: AAC-HE, AAC-LC, G.711, MP3, WMA.

2D/3D graphics accelerator
The 2D/3D graphics accelerator (SGX) subsystem accelerates 2-dimensional (2D) and 3-dimensional (3D) graphics applications. The SGX subsystem is based on the POWERVR SGX core from Imagination Technologies. SGX is a new generation of programmable POWERVR graphic cores. The POWERVR SGX530 architecture is scalable and can target all market segments from mainstream mobile devices to high-end desktop graphics. Targeted applications include feature phone, PDA, and hand-held games.
