The OMAP35x EVM (TMDXEVM3503) from Mistral is a low cost and easy-to-use development platform based on TI’s OMAP35x processor. Designed with a modular and extendable architecture, the OMAP35x™ EVM helps developers leverage the benefits of the powerful 35xx processor with advanced Superscalar ARM® Cortex™-A8 RISC core.
The console command reference documents and OMAP 35x EVM user guide documents are available within the OMAP35x_SDK_0_9_5.iso image. They are OMAP35x_SDK_0_9_5.iso\OMAP35xEVM_HW_User_guide.pdf and OMAP35x_SDK_0_9_5.iso\OMAP35xEVM_Getting_started.pdf
No. There is no royalty pay for the EVM or for the use of the design in your own designs. In the future there will be additional components that may or may not include additional royalties. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are not sure.
You can use the Spectrum Digital’s XDS510 or the BlackHawk’s USB 560m emulator along with the TI CCS ver 3.3. When you are trying to connect the OMAPEVM to the JTAG Emulator, please make sure that the OMAPEVM is in the JTAG mode. For this make the SW1-1 of the processor module ON. Refer to Table 30 of the Hardware User Guide for more information on this.
The McBSP2, McBSP3 and UART3 interfaces are multiplexed between OMAP EVM main board and the expansion connectors. These interfaces are enabled to EVM main board by default. The user can enable these interfaces on expansion connector by setting switch SW1 on the Processor module. Please check Hardware user guide for SW1 switch description.
The JTAG mode can be enabled by setting SW1 switch on the Processor module. Please check Hardware user guide for SW1 switch description. Note: JTAG mode has to disabled for normal operation (Peripheral/Memory Booting).
The headers J2, J3, J5 and J6 can be used to measure the power consumption of various sections on the OMAP35x EVM board. For additional information please refer OMAP35x EVM schematics and Hardware User’s Guide.
OMAP35x EVM supports TWL4030 based battery charging hardware. Please note that the Battery charging functionality is not tested in the current release. Please visit our website for updates on the testing and availability of this driver.
No plug-in HW modules are currently available for the OMAP35x EVM. Plug-in modules will be developed only on a need basis for a specific customer. Likely peripherals on this plug-in board could be camera, speaker, microphone, IRDA, any other custom peripheral that can be supported by OMAP35x EVM.

Some hardware modifications are to be done in order to enable the TWL4030 phy based USB interface, please refer to the Application Note available under Documentation and Software for TMDXEVM3503 which explains the same.
