K2E-EVM Custom Hardware Design Services

The K2E Evaluation Modules(EVM) with double wide AMC form-factor, enables developers to immediately start evaluating 66AK2Ex processor and begin building application around it. These consist of especially demanding high-performance applications like cloud computing, cloud storage, networking, mission critical applications, video/audio and image processing and general purpose control processor applications. The EVMs include an on-board, single 66xx Keystone-2 SOC with robust connectivity options that allows customers to use this double AMC form factor card in various systems. EVMs can also work as a standalone. The software accompanying the K2E EVM includes the Code Composer Studio™ Integrated Development Environment version 5 (CCS v5), and the Multicore Software Development Kit (MCSDK) that includes the Board Support Package (BSP), Chip Support Library (CSL), Power On Self-test (POST), Network Development Kit (NDK), SYSBIOS, and Out of Box (OOB) Demonstration software.
