eInfochips, together with Texas Instruments (TI), announced the availability of evaluation modules (EVMs) on the TI 66AK2Ex processors.

The EVM, coupled with design services from eInfochips, will accelerate benchmarking and design cycles by up to six months, for customers to build reliable, high performance products. The TI 66AK2Ex processors are tailored for applications in cloud computing, avionics, medical imaging, industrial automation, and physical security. The TI 66AK2Ex is the latest ARM+DSP System-on-Chip (SoC) from TI, equipped with KeyStone II multi-core architecture for power efficiency.

The 66AK2Ex EVM with a double wide AMC form-factor enables developers to immediately evaluate the 66AK2Ex processors and build applications. The EVMs include an on-board, single C66x KeyStone-II SoC, and several connectivity options allowing use in a variety of systems.

EVMs can also stand alone. The software accompanying the EVM includes the Code Composer Studio Integrated Development Environment version 5 (CCS v5), and the Multicore Software Development Kit (MCSDK) that includes the Board Support Package (BSP), Chip Support Library (CSL), Power On Self-test (POST), Network Development Kit (NDK), SYSBIOS, and Out of Box (OOB) Demonstration software.

Ellen Blinka, marketing manager, TI said, "TI customers are excited to take the 66AK2Ex processors to the market. eInfochips expertise on the K2E platform and their design services are a valuable asset to shorten their product design cycles."

The 66AK2Ex processors incorporates the most performance-optimised ARM Cortex-A15 processor, dual-core or quad-core CorePac and TMS320C66x DSP core, that can run at a core speed of up to 1.4GHz. TI's 66AK2E05/02 device enables a high performance, power-efficient, and easy to use platform for developers of a broad range of applications. In addition to the TI 66AK2Ex EVMs, eInfochips will also provide electronic design and firmware development services for TI K2E, TI K2H, and TI K2L platforms.

"With hardware design, you get just one shot. Fortune 500 customers leverage our electronic design and firmware development services to leapfrog ahead of competition. With a reduced device ramp-up time, our customers lead the market with innovative, efficient, and high performance products." said Parag Mehta, Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer, eInfochips.
