Summer To-do list:

  • Start designing with AM437x
  • Get a tan
  • Watch hours and hours of soccer madness
  • Fire up the grill

TI's AM437x processors based on the Cortex-A9 core is available now. Put it at the top of your summer checklist. 

While you're relaxing on the beach and getting that perfect tan, learn how to get started with the AM437x.  You'll learn about the various options, hardware  tools available (including the AM437x EVM), Linux support and the various support resources available.

Once you're done head inside to get caught up in what's going on in the soccer world. Of course, you may find that not much is happening for most of the 90 minutes. So pass the time by watching the AM437x overview video. In the video, you'll see why the AM437x stands out with features such as a dual camera interface, dual CAN, dual Gigabit Ethernet, and more.

No doubt you'll work up a huge appetite, so it's time to fire up the grill. Make sure to keep one eye on the grill and the other on the many reference designs specifically created to help you with your AM437x design. These include the dual camera reference design, cap touch reference design, quad-SPI reference design and others.

Fair warning, though, those reference designs will get you salivating so much that you may accidentally bite your spouse. That will, of course, lead to suspensions and possible fines. Right, Luis Suárez?

By this point, you may be exhausted and need some soothing summertime reading. Download the AM437x datasheet and read it. Heck, its so good that you could read it to your spouse to make up for that bite.

And before you lay your head down to rest, make sure to order the AM437x EVM. Designing with the AM437x will guarantee sweet dreams for many months to come.

Alejandro Erives, Sitara ARM Processors Brand manager, warns against grilling up the AM437x EVM. It surely is tasty, but perhaps, a little too crunchy.
