The news that Texas Instruments has decided to drop the development of the OMAP chipset, yesterday, was infirmed by the company.
Texas Instruments will not give up OMAP but will put less emphasis on the chipset’s integration in mobile phones and tablet PC, focusing on other devices.
Moreover, Texas Instruments said, in a statement sent to GSMArena, the OMAP 5 chips will also be developed for the automotive, robotics and communications enterprise.
Moreover, the manufacturer announced the further development for OMAP 5, which will integrate the Cortex-A15 and that the devices will reach consumers in 2013.
The infirmed news came on the background of real pressures on Texas Instruments. Specifically, the IT market has lost ground due to phones and tablets competing manufacturers such as Qualcomm, Samsung and Apple have already integrating 4G modems in their chipsets.
