  • Hi,

    I imported two AM335x Starter Kit from Digikey - USA and yesterday the kits arrived for me in Brazil.

    The first thing I did, was followed the User´s Guide. I chose for one of the operating systems Linux or Android from TI SDCARD and power on the kit´s.

    To my surprise, nothing happened, did not happen in the boot Linux and Android, but the user´s led work and power led too.

    I connected the kit´s in my PC using the Serial Console in the linux Ubuntu, and the following message appeared:


    U-Boot SPL 2011.09-00381-g6309768 (Jan 03 2013 - 00:20:41)

    Texas Instruments Revision detection unimplemented

    Incorrect magic number in EEPROM

    read_eeprom() failure. continuing with ddr3

    Incorrect magic number in EEPROM


    Are the two hardwares with problem ? I hope not, because it is very expensive to import into Brazil and I spend much money !!!

    Is my first experience with TI Products because I am using Microchip in my projects, and I never had problems with the Microchip products.

    I'm hoping someone can help me, and I have not bought two weights of roles I've had more expensive (USD 900.00)

    Thanks very much !!!

    Best Regards,

    Robison Lopes

  • Hi Robison, I see that you also went ahead and posted this question to the TI E2E forums. Plus, you received a response already! That is the exact right thing to do. I hope the response is what you were looking for and thank you for your business.

  • I have the Beagle bone (and love it). That starter kit though, with the LCD... [drool]. 25% off a $200 item would probably even cover the shipping to here in Australia.

    Oh, wait. Offer ended Dec 31, and here it is Jan 07... damn. Unless you are willing to extend the offer, I'll have to wait until next Christmas.

  • Alan,

    Avent just launched a 25% discount promotion on AM335x tools as well. StarterKit is on that list. Here's some more information: www.em.avnet.com/.../Texas-Instruments-AM335x-ARM-Cortex-A8-Processors-and-Discount-EVM-Offer.aspx
