Dear Engineer,

<img alt="" src=“http://www.silica.com/fileadmin/Inxmail_Daten/Bilder/TI_Omap_kl.JPG” align=“right” border="{$border}

      " nosend="1">**Be among the first to get an in-depth training on Industry's First Architecture based on the ARM®Cortex™-A8 Processor.**

Free Beagle Board for first 25 registrations received!

More intuitive user interfaces, advanced graphics and enhanced connectivity - Texas Instruments’ OMAP™ processors, based on the market’s first broad offering of the ARM® CortexTM-A8 core, provide an unprecedented combination of high performance embedded processing at industry’s best performance/power ratio in a single chip.

With more than four times the processing capability of today’s 300 MHz ARM9 devices, the superscalar Cortex-A8 core runs up to 600 MHz and is integrated into four new OMAP35xTM applications processors for a wide range of possible applications, including portable infotainment and industrial devices, points of sale, Single Board Computers, digital signage and low-power medical devices.

Best regards,
Your Silica Team
