Texas Instruments Inc. has unveiled its Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 starter kit with a 4.3in LCD supporting rotation and tilt capabilities via the on-board accelerometer. According to the company, the development platform is geared for smart appliances, industrial automation and networking applications and other devices requiring a touch screen interface.

The platform integrates multiple communication options such as dual Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity for the creation of highly connected devices.

At speeds up to 720MHz, the AM335x starter kit accelerates designs with a ready-for-production hardware and software platform. This board is an affordable tool that offers the ability to quickly evaluate the features of the processor and accompanying TI components, taking the guess work out of hardware design. This allows both experienced and novice designers to focus on product differentiation such as advanced graphics and connectivity. Developers can accelerate time to market and reduce costs when creating connected thermostats, security panels, wireless hard disc drives and portable hot spots.

TI's AM335x starter kit features 2Gb DDR3 memory, 2Gb Ethernet ports via integrated 2-port switch on the AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 processor and an XDS100 JTAG emulator functionality on board via USB enables debug at no extra cost.

The AM335x starter kit (TMDSSK3358) is available and shipping today for $199.
