Texas Instruments TMS320DM8168 DaVinci Video System on Chip

Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the new TMS320DM8168 DaVinci video system-on-chip (SoC). The DM8168 consolidates all of the capture, compression, display and control functionalities of a high definition (HD), multi-channel system on a single chip. The DaVinci video SoC features a 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 and a 1 GHz TI C674x digital signal processor (DSP) core. The DM8168 reduces system electronic bill of materials (eBOM) costs by 50%. It replaces the functionality of over 10 discrete components. The DM8168 DaVinci video SoC will begin sampling in the second quarter.
