AM387x - MAYA

Processor:  Texas Instruments "DaVinci" DM814x / "Sitara" AM387x

MAYA is a ready-to-use SOM (System On Module) based on Texas Instruments Cortex-A8 high performance application processor from DM814x (DaVinci) and AM387x (Sitara) families.

MAYA can operate in -40°C to + 85°C industrial temperature range and has a 204 pin SO-DIMM form factor. It offers a highly integrated peripheral set and it is extremely well suited for deployment in security systems, industrial electronics, home automation, medical and other embedded applications.

Available evaluation boards:

MayaEVB-Lite (available at 899,00 €)

MayaEVB-Lite is an adapter board designed to evaluate the functionalities of Maya system-on-module. Because the similarities between Maya system-on-module and NAON system-on-module, MayaEVB-Lite has been designed to allow for mating Maya on carrier boards originally designed for Naon. Thus MayaEVB-Lite shall always be used in combination with such a kind of carrier board (for example see NaonEVB-Lite and NaonEVB-Mid).
