    Heard About this TI product :Jacinto ??

    has anyone heard or worked on TI Jacinto.
    I was not able to find any documentation on this.
    Is this same as TI Davinci?

    I had not heard of "Jacinto" earlier.
    It seems to be a dual core processor : DRA440. with an ARM926Ej core,
    It is not related to Piccolo!!

    ha! it is hard to find much on it. i get the impression it's not going to be marketed publicly because they don't want people hacking it. here's a pdf, one of only 3 jacinto docs showing up at ti.com. and microsoft seems to be supporting it too, in a Microsoft Auto 3.1 software package.


    i suspect you won't find any documentation for this unless you can somehow discover what the actual TI product used is. it may be very similar to some other off-the-shelf TI product.

    edit: you know, on second thought, maybe they're just abandoning the Jacinto code name and going with branding as Davinci

    I think this statement helps

    " Jacinto (552MHz DSP, 348MHz ARM926E-JS and OMAP5946) a cost effective media processing engine for Automotive Infotainment applications, mainly to enable head-unit, rear seat entertainment and digital radio designers to create scalable reusable hardware and software platforms."
