AM335x starter kit


Order now


The AM335x starter kit (EVM-SK) provides a stable and affordable platform with Mainline Linux™ to quickly start evaluation of Sitara™ Arm® Cortex®-A8 AM335x processors (AM3351AM3352AM3354AM3356AM3358) and accelerate development for factory automation, building automation, smart grid, and various other networking applications. AM335x is a low-cost family of processors available at less than $3 (in volume) and is integrated with options such as dual gigabit Ethernet, DDR3 and LCD touch screen. DDR3 interface reduces BOM costs and delivers faster memory throughput. The EVM comes with a Processor SDK (Software Development Kit) for providing easy setup and fast out-of-the-box access to benchmarks and demos. The SDK includes bootloader, Linux Kernel, filesystem and several pre-built libraries and extensive documentation to get started. Learn more here.

AM335x highlighted features include:

  • Free Long-Term Stable (LTS) Mainline Linux kernel support with pre-built libraries: provides easy setup and fast out-of-the-box access to benchmarks and demos.
  • Dual gigabit Ethernet ports with integrated switch: can be used in three operational modes including switch mode, dual MAC mode, and gateway mode.
  • 4.3-Inch LCD Touch Screen: resistive touch LCD supporting rotation and tilt capabilities via the on-board accelerometer.
