DRA79x Evaluation Module



The Jacinto™ DRA79x evaluation module designed to speed up development efforts and reduce time-to-market for applications such as infotainment, reconfigurable digital cluster, or integrated digital cockpit. To allow scalability and reuse across Jacinto DRA79x Infotainment SoCs, the EVM is based on the Jacinto DRA797 SoC, which incorporates a heterogeneous, scalable architecture that includes a mixture of the following:

  • ARM® Cortex®-A15 core
  • Two ARM Cortex-M4 processing subsystems
  • One C66x Digital Signal Processors (DSPs)
  • 2D- and 3D-graphics processing units including the POWERVR™ SGX544 from Imagination Technologies
  • High-definition image and video accelerator

The EVM also integrates a host of peripherals including multicamera interfaces (both parallel and serial) for LVDS-based surround view systems, displays, CAN, and Gigabit Ethernet AVB. The main CPU board integrates these key peripherals such as Ethernet or HDMI, while the infotainment application daughter board (JAMR3) and LCD/TS daughter board will complement the CPU board to deliver complete system to jump start your evaluation and application development.

Please note that a power supply is NOT included with the Jacinto 6 Eco Evaluation Module and needs to be purchased separately. A power supply with the following specs is needed:

  • 12V DC output
  • 5A output
  • Positive inner and negative outer terminals
  • Female barrel with 2.5mm or 2.1mm inner diameter and 5.5mm outer diameter, insertion depth is 8.85mm
