Mistral to expedite development of power-optimized devices built on the Cortex-A8 high-performance, power-efficient processor

Committed to its role in facilitating developers to build products that harness the latest technologies, Mistral, a product realization company specializing in real-time embedded solutions, announced the availability of the ARM Cortex A8 processor-based development platform, the OMAP35x evaluation module (EVM).

Mistral’s low cost and easy to use development platform is based on Texas Instruments’ offering of new OMAP devices which integrate an ARM Cortex-A8 processor. The OMAP35x EVM is an ideal software development and device prototyping platform for users to start immediately on their multimedia-based application device development.

Powered by the high performance ARM Cortex-A8 processor, Mistral’s OMAP35x EVM will enable full-internet experience for on-the-go devices, helping users to gain faster access to databases, spreadsheets, presentations, e-mail, audio and video attachments, web browsing and videoconferencing applications.

“This is one of the first development boards available for the ARM Cortex-A8 processor. It will be instrumental in enabling designers building next generation power optimized portable devices. It will be a major boost for demanding consumer applications, which will stand to gain from the enhanced audio, video, networking and graphics processing capability while utilizing low battery power” said Samyeer Metrani, VP-Services (USA), Mistral Solutions. The Development Platform will support Linux and Windows Embedded OS”.
