Key Document


The AM335x Starter Kit (EVM-SK) provides a stable and affordable platform to quickly start evaluation of Sitara™ ARM® Cortex™-A8 AM335x Processors (AM3352, AM3354, AM3356, AM3358) and accelerate development for smart appliance, industrial and networking applications. It is a low-cost development platform based on the ARM Cortex-A8 processor that is integrated with options such as Dual Gigabit Ethernet, DDR3 and LCD touch screen.

At speeds up to 720 MHZ, the AM335x Starter Kit accelerates designs with a ready-for-production hardware and software platform. This "best value" board offers the ability to quickly evaluate the features of the processor and accompanying TI components, taking the guess work out of the hardware design and allowing both experienced and novice designers to focus on product differentiation such as advanced graphics and connectivity.
