Texas Instruments is the first to license ARM's next generation Cortex-A chips

Texas Instruments OMAP 4 platform chipThe details are still quite scarce, but ARM already has such a long tradition in the market that Texas Instruments decided to license its next generation of Cortex-A chips even before an official launch scheduled for the end of the year.

TI intends to "raise the bar" of future OMAP platform solutions in terms of performance and energy efficiency, aiming to transform devices "radically" and enrich the mobile lifestyle of users.

The new chips also known by the code name “Eagle” will consume only about 0.25W per CPU and will be built initially in the 28nm architecture, being able to be reduced later to 22nm. This should be of great interest to Apple, that they will be able to explore them in future iPads, iPhones and / or iPods.

Apparently, this technology will be the successor to the chip used by TI in its tablet announced at the end of June.
