TMDXEVM8168: Latest development board

Part Number: TMDXEVM8168

Dear Madam/Sir,

I have the following questions related to DM816x/AM389x Evaluation Module (TMDXEVM8168)

1) This board is obsolete now, any newer supported board version available currently?

2) The TMS320DM8168 IC is still active, do you have any other evaluation board (not obsolete) that uses this IC which can be purchased?

3) It seems that related Davinci product documents are more than 2 years old, is TI planning to continue Davinci line of product or will be phasing out soon? I am trying to decide if I should use TMS320DM8168 for my new product, worrying that it will be discontinued soon, if so, are there any newer line of product ?

4) For TMS320DM8168, its PCIe only has 2 lanes, do you have any other Davinci IC or similar product that has 4 lanes PCIe? 


Thanks, please reply soon,

Tim

    1) This board is obsolete now, any newer supported board version available currently?

    This board comes from Spectrum Digital. You should check with their support team if this EVM is still available for ordering. The latest version is G:

    For contacting Spectrum, check below links:

    You can check Z3 Technology boards:

    You can also check with UDWorks for DVR RDK boards:

    DM8168 is active, but there is no new development for this board (kernel is 2.6.37) and support by TI is limited. See below links:

    I would recommend you to evaluate AM57x devices:

    4) For TMS320DM8168, its PCIe only has 2 lanes, do you have any other Davinci IC or similar product that has 4 lanes PCIe? 

    I made a search, but I am not able to find Davinci or Sitara device with 4 lanes PCIe.

    Thanks for your quick reply.
    For AM57x, any evaluation boards model you can recommend? And from which vendors?
    What are the main difference between AM57x and TMS320DM8168 ?

    Regards,

    There are many differences, I do not have a list with the differences.
