Welcome!

Your new OMAP-L137 Starter Kit is a low-cost development platform designed to speed the development of high-precision applications based on TI's OMAP-L13x applications processors.

NOTE: The C6743, C6745, C6747 and OMAP-L137 all share the same Starter Kit which contains an OMAP-L137 processor (TI Orderable as TMDXOSKL137BET). Note that the OMAP-L137 and C6747 are the same device except the C6747 does not include the ARM9 core. C6743, C6745 and C6747 are largely similar as well with the C6743 and C6745 having a reduced peripheral set. You can find the differences for these parts on the respective product folders. If you are developing for the DSP side only (C674x) please go the the Getting_Started_Guide_for_C6747

Please also see the TMDXOSKL137BET product folder for information on the kit.

What's on the Board?

Hardware

The OMAP-L137 EVM is a standalone development platform that enables users to evaluate and develop applications for the OMAP-L137 processor. The following block diagram shows the major hardware components.

Software

Currently, OMAP-L137 EVMs do not come with any software installed on the board. So if you plug in an UART cable and do not get the U-BOOT prompt, don't be surprised. Burning U-Boot to the board's SPI Flash is covered in the Restoring/Flashing Bootloaders section of the Getting Started Guide page.
