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, digital photo frames, digital signage, video doorbells, and other digital video products that have yet to be invented.

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

The TMS320DM36x Digital Video Evaluation Module (DM36x EVM) includes the following components:
  • TMS320DM368 DaVinci™ processor-based development board
  • Spectrum Digital LCD board with touch screen
  • Leopard Imaging LI-5M02 camera board for live video capture
  • 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
  • Universal power supply and power cords
  • Serial, Ethernet and Component video cables
  • 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
  • Code Sourcery G++™ evaluation tools DVD
  • Ubuntu 10.04 LTS CD


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

Code Composer Studio v5

World class, easy, affordable! Eclipse-based development and debug of embedded apps. Supports TI microcontrollers, ARM and/or DSP processors.
