Open Multimedia Application Platform (OMAP)

Open Multimedia Application Platform (OMAP) is the name of Texas Instrument’s application processors.  The processors, which are systems on a chip (SoC), function much like a central processing unit (CPU) to provide laptop-like functionality for smartphones or tablets.

Application processors integrate components of a computer system on a single chip.  OMAP processors consist of a processor core and a group of Internet protocol (IP) modules. OMAP supports multimedia by providing hardware acceleration and interfacing with peripheral devices.

The OMAP family consists of three product groups classified by performance and intended application:

  • High-performance applications processors
  • Basic multimedia applications processors
  • Integrated modem and applications processors
