Key Document


The DRA829VXEVM evaluation module (EVM) platform is based on the Jacinto™ DRA829V and is designed to speed up development efforts and reduce time to market for automotive gateway and vehicle compute systems. The integrated diagnostics and functional safety features are targeted to ASIL-D certification/requirements. The integrated microcontroller (MCU) island eliminates the need for an external system MCU. The device features Gigabit Ethernet ports with integrated switch to meet networking use cases that require heavy data bandwidth and also includes PCIe hub functionality. CAN-FD and up to UART interfaces are available on the device. General purpose Arm® Cortex®-R5F subsystems can handle low level, timing critical processing tasks and leave the Arm® Cortex®-A72’s unencumbered for advanced applications.

This EVM kit features the main CPU board and an Ethernet expansion board option for additional gigabit Ethernet ports in order to jump start evaluation and development.
