The 66AK2H Evaluation Module (EVM) is a fully featured, robust development tool for embedded high performance compute systems. It includes new hardware features and highly optimized software – for under $1,000. The EVM features a single 66AK2H14 System on Chip (SoC), an LCD display and an on-board emulation to help developers quickly start designing in 66AK2H14, 66AK2H12 or 66AKH06 SOCs that support multiple ARM A15 and C66x DSP cores. The EVM is enabled with two 10GB Ethernet interfaces for a bandwidth of 20Gbps backplane connectivity and optional wire rate switching in high density systems. A 10GB adaptor card (sold separately) is needed to optically connect to the EVM. This adaptor card is available from Mistral.

Computational performance is an industry-leading 28.4 GMACS/DSP core and 10.2 GFLOPS/DSP core (@1.2 GHz operating frequency), making K2H ideal for applications requiring significant signal processing, such as real-time military applications, medical imaging and geological exploration.

The software accompanying the 66AK2H EVM is TI’s Processor SDK (PSDK), enabling fast development through production ready foundational software. The PSDK provides highly-optimized bundles of foundational, platform-specific drivers, optimized libraries and demos to enable development.
