Texas Instruments Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 Microprocessors

Texas Instruments introduced their Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 microprocessors. The TI AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 microprocessor offers low power consumption, prolongs battery life, reduces heat emissions, and enables portable, pocket-sized, fanless applications. Pricing for the AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 microprocessors start at $4.99 (in 100,000 unit quantities). Application-specific reference designs based on the AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 microprocessors will be available later this year and into 2012.
