Description

This TI Design (TIDEP0047) is a reference platform based on the AM57x processor and companion TPS659037 power management integrated circuit (PMIC).  This TI Design specifically highlights important power and thermal design considerations and techniques for systems designed with AM57x and TPS659037.  It includes reference material and documentation covering power management design, power distribution network (PDN) design considerations, thermal design considerations, estimating power consumption, and a power consumption summary.  

Features
  • AM57x processor with Dual ARM Cortex-A15, C66x DSP, ARM Cortex-M4, SGX544 graphics, and quad core PRU-ICSS feature set
  • TPS659037 companion PMIC
  • Design reference for PMIC, PDN, and Thermal
  • Power Estimation Tool (PET) for estimating system power and Power consumption summary
  • This reference design is tested, and includes a hardware reference (EVM), schematics, design files, bill-of-materials, Design Guide, and links to several application notes containing design material
