Elektrobit (EB) Specialized Device Platform, a versatile platform targeted to vertical markets such as defense, public safety and security. With the platform, EB can roll out customized mobile devices that meet specific industry functional or performance requirements—faster and with lower development risks and costs. The platform is comprised of components specifically focused to extend product life cycle, deliver excellent performance and simplify the platform evolution. It is anchored by the Texas Instruments OMAP family of application processors and includes both OMAP3 series single-core and OMAP4 series dual-core options. EB chose TI's OMAP processors for their balance between competitive mass market performance and unique features, such as integrated and fully programmable C64x Digital Signal Processor, that appeals to the target vertical markets. Other key features include Google Android operating system, integrated cellular connectivity options including LTE with Band 14 support for the U.S. Public Safety market, a high-resolution touch-screen enabled display, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and advanced battery and power management features. A cellular 2G/3G version of the platform uses the Infineon's SDR based XMM6081 chipset. The EB Specialized Device Platform is generally available today for devices to be commercialized with the OMAP3 Series applications processor and 2G/3G cellular connectivity options.
