    Umm... No?
    Every modern SoC can rotate, MIPI is a standard interface, the voltages are standard as well and the power supply chips (in case of the OMAP it's the PALMAS) also sits on the CPU board.
    Yes, modern SoCs have less MMC controllers than the OMAP5, so in order to have two SD card slots instead of one, an emmc controller would've to be added on the CPU board.

    Everything else is connected via standard busses as well, like i2c, SDIO, USB, etc.

    So yeah, we made sure the CPU is upgradable by keeping all CPU-related stuff on the CPU board and everything that is standard is on the mainboard.

    The consumer variant is the OMAP5430 which has never been released. The OMAP5432 is the automotive version and usually TI keeps those in production for at least 10 years.
