AM437x Evaluation Module (EVM)
The AM437x Evaluation Module (EVM) enables developers to immediately start evaluating the AM437x processor family (AM4372, AM4376, AM4377, AM4378 and AM4379) and begin building applications such as portable navigation, patient monitoring, home/building automation, barcode scanners, portable data terminals and others.

Order the TMDSEVM437X to begin evaluation of the AM437x processor family.

AM437x Secure Boot Evaluation Module (EVM)
The AM437x high secure/secure boot evaluation module (EVM) enables developers to evaluate secure boot functionality including signing and encryption on high secure AM437x devices.

This is a socketed EVM that includes one high secure AM437x device which includes a TI development key that can be used for evaluation of secure boot KeyWriter Software/Tools evaluation and verification of production key programming.

Please note that the TI development key should not be used for production. Developers can replace the high secure AM437x device in the socket on the EVM. These sockets provide flexibility for developers to evaluate key programming sequence on any AM437x device.

Fill out a request for a secure boot NDA, to get more information about  secure boot, to purchase a high secure EVM, and to obtain SEC-DEV software. Please note: secure boot NDA with Texas Instruments is required.
