Hi TI Experts,
I am starting a new board design and planning to use TI EVM design files for designing my custom board.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Hi Board designers,
For the purpose of faster prototype development, minimizing errors, optimizing efforts, you could consider reusing the EVM collaterals and is a good approach.
Although it is encouraged to reuses the EVM design files, it is important for you to be aware on some of the guidelines to be followed while reusing. The guidelines are listed:
Note on EVMs
We do not consider our hardware platforms (EVM) to be a reference design. They are evaluation platforms and may not represent a proper system implementation. In many cases, our EVMs are partially or completely designed before we release the processor for fabrication. This is done so the hardware platform is available when first silicon arrives. We may learn new device requirements during processor bring-up and bench validation. If so, these new requirements may not be accounted for in our hardware development platform. Therefore, TI expects customers to carefully review and follow all requirements defined in the device datasheet, silicon errata, and TRM when designing their system.
Our hardware development platforms were not designed to be comprehensive of specific system requirements, like radiated emissions, noise susceptibility, thermal management, etc.
EVM vs Data sheet: If you see difference between TI EVM and Data sheet, it is recommended to follow the Data sheet.
