Notion Ink has partnered with Texas Instruments (TI) for its next generation Adam II Tablets.
Adam II will be using OMAP44xx processor along with other TI components like Wi-Link 7.0 and Phoenix Audio Power Amplifiers.
Adam II will be based on Google's IceCream Sandwich Operating System.
The OMAP44xx platform's multicore architecture pairs its main CPUs with several differentiated features including programmable accelerators, hardware composition engines and a dedicated ISP. Imagination Technologies' PowerVR SGX5xx GPU and enhanced memory architecture add still more functionality while an OMAP-specific distributed composition architecture enables advanced image and video layering for great HD visuals.
Adam II will release the world's first Modular Based Software Architecture which will further expand the scope of application development and use nearly every single hardware feature in a "user customizable" application. Drag and drop features will enable application modification and Open Source Module will further expand the use cases and tablet deployment. Node operations like in Blender, and "Application Authoring Tools" are primarily aimed at non-programmers for composing applications, games and use-case flows in a drag-and-drop fashion, utilizing visual editors and behavior-based logic system.
The system has been designed for professionals and students, who will be able to use the tablet as a logic analyzer, medical imaging device, signal acquisition and processing, 3D modeling and multi-media.
