AM437x starter kit


Order now


The AM437x starter kit provides a stable and affordable platform to quickly start evaluation of Sitara™ Arm® Cortex®-A9 AM437x processors (AM4376, AM4378) and accelerate development for HMI, industrial and networking applications. It is a low-cost development platform based on the Arm Cortex-A9 processor that is integrated with options such as dual gigabit Ethernet, DDR3L, camera and capacitive touch screen LCD.

At speeds up to 1 GHz, the AM437x starter kit accelerates designs with a ready-for-production hardware and software platform. This "best value" board offers the ability to quickly evaluate the features of the processor and accompanying TI components, taking the guess work out of the hardware design and allowing both experienced and novice designers to focus on product differentiation such as advanced graphics and connectivity.
