Feedback on EK-TM4C129 Expanded Memory Option Booster Pack

Hello All,

We are planning to do an extender to the EK-TM4C129 with added NOR Flash+SRAM (external) v/s External SDRAM+Serial Flash. The performance would be lesser than the internal Flash but the code foot print could be potentially expanded,

I do want this to run through the forum to see whether it will be a good add on to the EK-TM4C129 portfolio of booster packs. Do let me know your thoughts if the extender board should be External SDRAM+Serial Flash or External Flash+External SRAM...

Regards

Amit

What is the preference for the Memory Extender Pack that you would want to be implemented

  • EK-TM4C129 + SDRAM + Serial SPI Flash (50%)
  • DK-TM4C129 + SDRAM (20%)
  • EK-TM4C129 + Parallel NOR Flash + Parallel Async SRAM (0%)
  • EK-TM4C129 + SDRAM + SD Card (30%)
  • Total Votes: 10
  • Voting Ended: Mar 28, 2015

    Amit,

     Will the Expanded Memory Booster Packs be available to sell on the TI store? And when the documentation and firmware will be available?

    Hello Ari,

    I am doing the documentation and packaging the files and would take 2-3 weeks to come online with reviews done.

    Amit,

     Do you think that the packaging files will be online this week?

    Hello Ari,

    The first of the designs is already online for DK-TM4C129. The second is in final approval for EK-TM4C1294 (my lull period of 2 weeks held off the approval.. apologies to the forum.)
