Sigh. No. Look at what you're doing - look carefully at the above.
"CPU implementer" - 0x41. That's A. For ARM Ltd. ARM Ltd implemented
this CPU. Did ARM Ltd really implement OMAP4470 ? I think TI would be
very upset if that were to be the case.
So no, OMAP4470 is _NOT_ a CPU. It is a SoC. The CPU inside the SoC is
a collection of ARM Ltd Cortex A9 _CPUs_.
See? Please, learn what a CPU is as opposed to a SoC.
