The TMS320DM36x Digital Video Evaluation Module (DVEVM) enables developers to start immediate evaluation of DaVinci™ processors and begin building digital video applications such as IP security cameras, action cameras, drones, wearables, digital signage, video doorbells, and other digital video products

The Digital Video Evaluation Module (DVEVM) allows developers to write production-ready application code for the ARM and provides access to the HDVICP coprocessor core using DaVinci APIs to begin immediate application development for the TMS320DM368 and TMS320DM365 digital media processors.

The TMS320DM36x Digital Video Evaluation Module (DM36x EVM) includes the following components:

  • TMS320DM368 DaVinci™ processor-based development board
  • Parallel Camera Input compatible with Leopard Imaging LI-5M02 camera board
  • Video capture of NTSC or PAL signals via component for HD and composite/S-Video for SD
  • NTSC or PAL output via component for HD and composite/S-Video for SD
  • Other features such as microphone in, headphone out, line in and line out, UART, USB 2.0 HS, 2GB NAND Flash memory and JTAG for test
  • USB mouse and adaptor
  • Serial, Ethernet and Component video cables
  • 8GB uSD card with USB SD card reader
  • Linux SDK demos and test bench (on SD card)
  • Linux Support Package Software Development Kit (LSP SDK) and TI eXpressDSP™ Linux-based DVSDK provided in kit
  • Getting Started Guide and Hardware Technical Reference
  • Note: A barrel jack with leads for connection to a bench supply is provided. A Power Supply is not included in this kit and must be purchased separately.
  • A recommended wall mount supply is the SMI18-5-V-P5 (5V, 3A)


TI’s eXpressDSP Linux-based DVSDK allows system integrators to incorporate discrete software modules and combine them into a single executable output for the systems, avoiding months of tedious manual integration. By making it easy to create custom bundles of codecs for specific applications, the configuration kit makes it simple to reuse code.

The DVSDK includes:

  • TI’s HD MPEG-4, H.264, MPEG2 as well as JPEG production codecs
  • Ittiam’s AAC and G.711 codecs
  • Ability to run Custom codecs that comply with TI’s eXpressDSP Digital Media (xDM) algorithm standard
  • Multimedia APIs and Codec Engine Frameworks
  • Drivers for UART, I2C, SPI, EDMA, EMAC, NAND,MMC, SD Card, USB Host/Gadget, RTC, HPI, voice codec
  • Video Processing Subsystem (Display, Capture, CCD Controller, Resizer, Previewer)
  • U-boot boot loader
