Enea Announces Support for Texas Instruments’ OMAP-L138 Applications Processor

Fully integrated software platform spans both CPU and DSP for rapid development of low-power applications

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, 21 September, 2010 – Enea (NASDAQ OMX Nordic:ENEA) today
announced support for Texas Instruments’ OMAP-L138 Applications Processor. As the only
embedded systems vendor offering realtime operating systems (RTOS) for both microprocessors
and digital signal processors (DSPs), Enea is uniquely positioned to deliver a comprehensive
software platform ( for System-on-Chip devices like the OMAP-L138.
The solution features the Enea OSE® RTOS ( for ARM926EJ-S™, Enea
OSE® compact kernel RTOS optimized for TI’s C6000™ DSPs; Enea® LINX, for Interprocess
communication; Enea® dSPEED, a system level field debug and management framework and
Enea® Optima development suite. For developers building low power applications with the TI
OMAP-L138, the Enea solution provides a complete, production ready and fully supported system
development environment based on a single programming model (API) and tools across all cores
– reducing complexity, and accelerating development.

“Enea software has been designed from the ground up for multicore and System-on-Chip
environments like TI’s OMAP-L138,” said Mathias Båth, senior vice president of marketing at
Enea. “By integrating our highly optimized and proven-in-use OSE technology for TI’s ARM® and
C6000 DSPs into a single consistent runtime and tools platform, customers will get a clear
advantage in terms of accelerated development, integration and debugging of highly reliable and
performance critical applications on the OMAP-L138”

“With Enea’s new solution based on TI’s OMAP-L138 applications processor, customers
immediately gain the powerful operation system support they need,” said Joy Ji, OMAP-L1x
product line marketing manager, TI. “Enea’s software platform will help OMAP-L138 developers
achieve the integration, programmability and debugging ease that they require on the processor’s
DSP and ARM cores.”

TI’s OMAP-L138 is a low-power applications processor based on an ARM926EJ-S and a
TMS320C674x™ DSP core. It is designed to allow OEMs to quickly bring to market devices
requiring robust operating system support, rich user interfaces, and high processing performance
life through the maximum flexibility of a fully integrated mixed processor solution. The dual-core
architecture of the device provides the benefits of both fixed/floating point DSP and Reduced
Instruction Set Computer (RISC) technologies for optimal performance and programming

“The comprehensive software solution that we are announcing today is already receiving
attention from OEMs,” said Per Åkerberg, president and CEO at Enea. “In fact, we have recently
closed a design win in the communications infrastructure market. This clearly illustrates the value
of having a common software model across all the processing cores on an advanced application
processor like TI’s OMAP-L138.”
