PandaBoard ES is the industry's first board to rely on TI's OMAP4460 processor, which delivers a 20 percent increase in overall performance and a 25 percent increase in graphics when compared to the original board's OMAP4430 processor. The OMAP4460 processor's smart multicore architecture includes two ARM Cortex-A9 cores running at up to 1.2 GHz each, and excels at offloading tasks from the CPU and GPU to free them for more intensive applications. The OMAP4460 processor is complemented by TI's latest power management technology and dual-channel LPDDR2 memory for faster processing. Also new to PandaBoard ES is the introduction of a SysBoot switch, allowing for the manual switch of boot order depending on the application's need. PandaBoard ES is an open mobile development platforms offering Bluetooth low energy technology hardware support, giving developers the opportunity to craft new applications on this emerging technology. PandaBoard ES also supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies. For mobile multimedia developers seeking external display flexibility, the next-generation board offers Display Serial Interface (DSI) support along with the original PandaBoard's HDMI, Digital Video Interface (DVI) and DPI support. PandaBoard ES is software compatible with PandaBoard, easing project migration from the original board to the next-generation version.
