Overview:


element14 presents the DM3730-EVKDM3730-EVK Evaluation Kit, it’s an ideal hardware and software platform with the incorporation of Texas Instruments DaVinci DM3730DaVinci DM3730 media processor, as well as support for running high-level operating systems such as Linux, WinCE and Android. It’s a complete development system accelerating time to market for more media-rich, portable applications including navigation systems, media players, medical patient monitoring devices, industrial test and measurement devices, industrial vision and portable communications.


DaVinci DM3730-EVKDM3730-EVK video processor is pin-to-pin compatible with Sitara AM37xSitara AM37x devices and software compatible with the OMAP35xOMAP35x processors. The C64x+ DSP and hardware video accelerator enable audio and HD 720p video decoding and encoding independent of the ARM processor. The programmable DSP engine allows multiple signal processing tasks such as image processing and analysis, digital filtering, and math functions. DaVinci DM3730-EVKDM3730-EVK video processor is suitable for 720p HD (High Definition) video applications which require large amount of data processing.

 

The DM3730-EVKDM3730-EVK  takes full features of the TI DM3730-EVKDM3730-EVK processor and supports up to 512MB DDR SDRAM and 512MB NAND Flash as well as a reserved iNAND design to expand the flash storage capabilities. The board has exposed many other hardware interfaces including serial ports, LCD/TSP, DVI-D, S-Video, Ethernet, USB, TF, keyboard, camera, SPI, I2C and JTAG. The board is able to support for Linux 2.6.32 and WinCE 6.0 operating systems. It has two methods to boot Linux and WinCE systems from either TF card or NAND flash. Besides this, it is provided with an Android 2.2 demo complete with driver source code. Also instructions are provided in user manual for how to boot the Android demo image from NAND flash with a TF card.


The DM3730-EVKDM3730-EVK includes aDM3730-EVKDM3730-EVK board and all necessary accessories to help users start building their own applications. The board is preloaded with Linux OS in the NAND flash and WinCE OS in the TF card. The user can display the subsystem using a 4.3 inch TFT LCD and Touch screen or using a DVI-D monitor through an HDMI to DVI-D cable, or using TV for NTSC/PAL video out. Along with the kit, is provided a user manual, schematic drawings and datasheet documents to help the user better understand and use the kit.


Additionally, various modules are offered for the DM3730-EVKDM3730-EVK  including VGA, WiFi, Analog Camera, GPS, GPRS, 3G and Digital Camera modules which greatly extend the functions of the board and would be flexible for customer selection to meet their own needs.


Key Applications: Portable Data Terminals, Navigation, Auto Infotainment, Gaming, Medical Equipment, Home Automation, Human Interface, Industrial Control, Test and Measurement, Single board Computers.
