AM62x starter kit for Sitara™ processors


Order now


The AM62x starter kit (SK) evaluation module (EVM) is a stand-alone test and development platform built around the AM62x system-on-a-chip (SoC). AM62x processors are comprised of a quad-core 64-bit Arm®-Cortex®-A53 microprocessor, single-core Arm Cortex-R5F microcontroller (MCU) and an Arm Cortex-M4F MCU.

The SK-AM62 is the version of the AM62x starter kits for general purpose applications utilizing a discrete power solution.

SK-AM62 allows the user to experience a dual-display feature through high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) [over dots per inch (DPI)] and low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS), as well as industrial communication solutions using serial, Ethernet, USB and other interfaces.

SK-AM62 can be used for display applications (e.g., human machine interface (HMI) and control panel) with either an HDMI display or an external LVDS panel, up to 2K resolution. Its powerful Arm performance, up to quad-A53 at 1.4 GHz with rich industrial interfaces, offers good control and communication capabilities for a wide range of applications, such as programmable logic controllers (PLC), automation control or a monitor/supervisor system.

In addition, SK-AM62 can communicate with other processors or systems and act as a communication gateway. It can directly operate as a standard remote I/O system or simple sensor connected to an industrial communication network. The embedded emulation logic allows for emulation and debugging using standard development tools such as the Code Composer Studio™ integrated development environment (IDE) (CCSTUDIO).
