AM64x starter kit for Sitara™ processor


Order now


The AM64x starter kit is a stand-alone test and development platform that is ideal for accelerating the prototype phase of your next design. The kit includes: wired and wireless connectivity, three expansion headers, multiple boot options and flexible debug capabilities.

The starter kit is equipped with AM64x processor from TI and an optimized feature-set to allow the user to create commercial and industrial solutions using Ethernet-based, USB, and serial wired interfaces plus 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz wireless communications. Two 1-Gbps Ethernet Ports for wired connectivity are on-board, in addition to three expansion headers to expand the board’s functionality. Using standard serial protocols such as UART, I²C, and SPI, the starter kit can interface with a multitude of other devices, acting as a communications gateway. This starter kit enables evaluation by running Linux on the A53 cores, making it the central engine in a remote industrial communication network and suitable as a programmable logic controller or motion controller. The additional embedded emulation logic allows for emulation and debugging using standard development tools such as Code Composer Studio™ from TI.

To evaluate the full capability of A53 cores and R5F cores together, please see TMDS64GPEVM.

For development on only the R5F cores, please see the LP-AM243.
