Texas Instruments, Inc. (TI) announced today they became the first to achieve the Netflix Silicon Reference Implementation (SRI) certification for the Netflix HD application on Android. TI’s Omap 4 platform combines its M-Shield security software with its quad-radio WiLink 7.0 solution to provide full 1080P 30 frames per second (FPS) streaming video.

TI’s WiLink 7.0 solution is said to be the only single chip to include WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and FM. TI worked with Trusted Logic to develop its DRM security software.

“Netflix already has a rich heritage of streaming to PCs, Macs, game consoles, Internet-connected TVs,  iPhone and iPad, and many set-top-boxes, so we sought a semiconductor partner that could bring our service to the broader mobile environment smoothly and securely,” said Bill Holmes, Vice President Business Development, Netflix. TI’s OMAP architecture and M-Shield security will set the stage for a high-performance, low-power, secure platform that will help Netflix members instantly watch unlimited TV shows and movies on Android devices.”

The OMAP 4 platform’s Netflix certification supports Android 2.3 “Gingerbread”, with support for additional Android versions planned for later this year.

Devices with the OMAP 4 processor-driven Netflix application pre-installed will be launched in the near future according to the TI press-release.
