AM3505/3517-LIZARD

Processor:  Texas Instruments "Sitara" AM3505/AM3517

LIZARD is a mid-class ARM Cortex-A8 SOM (System On Module) based on Texas Instruments "Sitara" AM3505/3517 application processor.

LIZARD is a well balanced solution for a high range of applications where extended connectivity, sophisticated displays, rich user-interfaces are required, including industrial electronics, smart home controllers, security systems, automation and point of service. At the same time, LIZARD guarantees cost efficiency and reduced power consumption.

LIZARD is designed to be easily included in customer's embedded systems, due to the small form factor, the inexpensive stacking connectors and the pinout compatibility with DAVE Embedded Systems' Esatta line CPU modules family.

Linux and WindowsCE development kits will be available for customers who want to start the development on the Lizard platform. Customers can choose among two different evaluation boards, LizardEVB-Lite and LizardEVB-High.

LizardEVB-Lite (Available at 499,00 €)

Thanks to the Zefeer compatibility Lizard can be plugged on the Zefeer designed host boards, e.g. the ZefeerEVB:

 

 

The LizardEVB-Lite is an evaluation board directly derived from the ZefeerEVB and is dedicated to customers who needs a simple solution for a quick evaluation. The available peripherals are a subset of the Lizard interfaces:

  • Ethernet 10/100MBit LAN w/PHY on RJ45
  • 3 x USB Host
  • 3 x Serial port (RS232)
  • JTAG connector
  • ADC
  • I2S Audio
  • LCD TFT
  • Touch screen
  • Keypad
  • GPIO
  • ATX Power Connector

The kits based on the LizardEVB-Lite are LELK-L and LWCK-L.

LizardEVB-High

Coming Soon


The full Lizard Evaluation board (code name: Mistral) is a complete host board which provides all the Lizard's peripherals and much more, including an FPGA on-board. It is designed to allow customers to fully evaluate Lizard capabilities.

The kits based on the LizardEVB-High are LELK-H and LWCK-H.

Lizard Embedded Linux Kit Download: LELK 1.2.0

Current Lizard Linux kernel is 2.6.32. It is directly derived from the git tree hosted here: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/tmlind/linux-omap-2.6.git;a=summary

This public tree is in turn kept in sync with mainstream (vanilla) kernel.

The Kit is composed by:

  • LizardEVB-L evaluation board (LELK-L)
  • LizardEVB-H evaluation board (LELK-H, coming soon)
  • Lizard CPU module - DLA7811x
  • U-Boot bootloader (source code and binaries)
  • Linux operating system (source code and binaries)
  • Full Lizard documentation (Manuals, User's Guides, Application Notes, ..)
  • Periodic updates (documentation revisions, new Application notes, new Design notes)
