    The AM3358 general purpose EVM is a standalone test, development, and evaluation module system that enables developers to write software and develop hardware around an AM3358 processor subsystem. The main elements of the AM3358 subsystem are already available on the base board of the EVM, which gives developers the basic resources needed for most general purpose type projects that encompass the AM3358 as the main processor. Additional typical type peripherals are built into the EVM such as memory, sensors, LCD, Ethernet PHY, etc. so that prospective systems can be modeled quickly without significant additional hardware resources.

    The System View of the AM3358 General Purpose EVM consists the baseboard (processor and main power supply), daughterboard (external peripherals), and the LCD display board (LCD and touchscreen) stacked together and connected through standard throughhole connectors.

    The AM3358 processor is the central processor to this EVM. All the resources on the board surround the AM3358 processor to provide development capabilities for hardware and software. The AM3358 microprocessors, based on the ARM Cortex-A8, are enhanced with image, graphics processing, peripherals and industrial interface options such as EtherCAT and PROFIBUS. The AM3358 microprocessor also contains POWERVR SGX™ Graphics Accelerator subsystem for 3D graphics acceleration to support display and gaming effects, the Programmable Real-Time Unit and Industrial Communication Subsystem (PRU-ICSS) toseparate from the ARM core, allowing independent operation and clocking for greater efficiency and flexibility, and the PRU-ICSS enables additional peripheral interfaces and real-time protocols such as EtherCAT, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, PROFIBUS, Ethernet Powerlink, Sercos, and others.

    Key Applications: Portable navigation, portable gaming and home/building automation, among others.
