Texas Instruments (TI), with the Jacinto 6 Eco processor family, addresses these entry- to mid-level segments by providing a cost effective solution with feature-rich in-vehicle infotainment.
The DRA726 is a System-on-Chip (SoC) able to deliver high-integrity audio, simultaneous multimedia streaming and device connectivity. It includes an ARM Cortex-A15 microprocessor unit (MPU), a C66x digital signal processor (DSP), two ARM Cortex-M4 MPUs and many automotive interfaces to provide a cost-optimized bill-of-material (BOM) for tier one vehicle manufacturers.
The SoC is based on enhanced OMAP™ architecture integrated on a 28nm technology and is provided in a 760-ball ball grid array (BGA) package featuring TI’s Via Channel Array (VCA) technology. It is AEC-Q100 qualified with automotive grade 1 temperature specifications, from -40°C to +125°C.
