Processor:  Texas Instruments "DaVinci" DM814x

DIDO is a ready-to-use CPU module based on Texas Instruments DM8148 high performance application processor. DIDO is the first product of DAVE Embedded Systems' ULTRA Line, which includes best-in-class solutions and full featured SOMs. In particular, for DIDO this means a boost on performances, thanks to the 2 GB DDR3 @ 533 MHz SDRAM memory, and great versatility thanks to the integrated PCI Express interface. DIDO is designed to be easily included in customer's embedded systems, due to the small form factor, the inexpensive stacking connectors and the back-compatibility with DAVE Embedded Systems' NAON CPU module.

Main Features

  • Top class CPU module based on Texas Instruments DM814x processors family
  • Ultra Line - ARM Cortex-A8 architecture @ 1 GHz

Longevity program: Texas Instruments General Quality Guidelines

DAVE Embedded Systems is committed to support and maintain its products according to Texas Instruments General Quality Guidelines


"TI’s Product withdrawal/discontinuance process complies with JESD48, latest issue. TI makes an effort to not obsolete products out of convenience. Convenience means: low running device, poor yields, limited customer adoption or similar items. TI’s obsolescence withdrawal schedule provides a longer lead time than the industry standard. TI allows 12 months for the last order and an additional 6 months to take final delivery of obsolete items. In rare circumstances, an accelerated withdrawal schedule may be necessary. In such cases, TI will communicate the last buy and final delivery dates in the EOL notice, along with an explanation of the circumstances necessitating the early withdrawal".
