The AM37x generation (AM3715/AM3703) of Sitara high-performance microprocessors is based on the enhanced Cortex-A8 device architecture and is integrated on TI's advanced 45-nm process technology. This architecture is designed to provide best in class ARM and graphics performance while delivering low power consumption.
The device can support numerous high-level operating systems and real-time operating system solutions including Linux, Android and Windows Embedded CE which are available free of charge directly from TI. Additionally, the device is fully backward compatible with previous Cortex-A8 Sitara microprocessors and OMAP processors.
The AM3715/AM3703 microprocessor data manual presents the electrical and mechanical specifications for the AM3715/AM3703 microprocessor.
