TMS320DM8127 Camera Starter Kit (CSK)


Order now


The TMS320DM8127 Camera Starter Kit (CSK) enables developers to begin designing wireless or wired connected digital video applications, such as security cameras, car DVRs, action-wearable cameras, drones, video conferencing, digital signage, stereo camera and other connected video products. The integrated C674x DSP on the TMS320DM8127 is ideal for vision analytics processing to expand the real-time capabilities of these end equipments.

The TMS320DM8127 CSK consists of the TMS320DM8127 processor board and the TMDSCSKCC I/O common carrier board. The processor board is a small-form-factor (60 mm x 44 mm) design containing the TMS320DM8127 device, power components, memories, and TI WiLink 8 WiFi/Bluetooth®/BLE module. It is designed to be a hardware reference for production systems. The carrier board is common and can be used with other digital media (DM) processor boards if desired. The included Leopard Imaging sensor and demonstration software allows for streaming of 1080p compressed video over wireless connection within minutes.
