Overview

The SK-AM62A-LP starter kit (SK) evaluation module (EVM) is built around our AM62A AI vision processor, which includes an image signal processor (ISP) supporting up to 5 MP at 60 fps, a 2 teraoperations per second (TOPS) AI accelerator, a quad-core 64-bit Arm® Cortex®-A53 microprocessor, a single-core Arm Cortex-R5F and an H.264/H.265 video encode/decode. SK-AM62A-LP is an ideal choice for those looking to develop low-power smart camera, dashcam, machine-vision camera and automotive front-camera applications.

SK-AM62A-LP also includes both a mobile industry processor interface (MIPI®) CSI-2 camera connector for a single camera and an additional expansion connector for up to four cameras, making it suitable for a variety of embedded vision and AI applications on the edge. For a variety of applications, our ISP can handle different lighting conditions in video streams by using high dynamic range (HDR) encoding and RGB-IR camera support. With edge AI, deep learning on video streams like image classification and object detection have greatly improved performance on the AM62A AI accelerator, therefore giving significant improvement in frame rate, latency and performance to allow offloading intensive processes from general-purpose cores.

Furthermore, the SK-AM62A-LP supports Linux® development with a feature-rich edge AI software development kit (SDK). On-chip emulation logic allows for emulation and debugging using standard development tools such as the Code Composer Studio™ integrated development environment (IDE) (CCSTUDIO) as well as an intuitive out-of-box user's guide to quickly start design evaluation.

Release Infomation

Thank you for your interest in the AM62A MCU PLUS Software Development Kit (SDK). This software accelerates application development schedules by eliminating the need to create basic system software functions from scratch.

  • The SDK includes a real-time multitasking kernel, network communications support, examples, and drivers.
  • The exact content of the SDK depends on the capabilities of the device, but all devices share common APIs and build on existing proven software components to ensure reliability and quality.
  • The software components are fully tested to ensure that they work together with TI’s Code Composer Studio integrated development environment.

TI Linux CI/CD Snapshot

AM62A Snapshot

In order to improve access to the very latest bug fixes and feature enhancements, TI is enabling Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) for AM62A processors. The patches for these changes have always been available on public repositories hosted on git.ti.com, and these source repositories could be built using the Yocto build environment on a daily basis. The new TI Linux CI/CD Snapshot makes it even easier to consume these changes with pre-built binaries of Linux boot images to try out on TI Evaluation Modules (EVMs and SKs) before migrating or picking the patches. A detailed test report is also published to help users understand the status of the build and features being validated. The Linux boot images from a snapshot can be regenerated using sources by following the build instructions provided on the snapshot page.

The daily snapshot is not a replacement for the official Processors SDK releases which have full documentation, training and support. The snapshot is a new easy way to try bug fixes and feature enhancements planned for the next SDK while enabling much more tighter integration with customizations and application development. This improved integration should allow users to release their customized code built  on the SDKs more quickly and confidently.
