Device Evaluation[edit]

Evaluation Boards[edit]

  • TI Evaluation Module:
    • EVM Product Folder
    • Base Board Specifications: Rev G DDR3 EVM
    • The only change on Revision G is the SPI Flash (U20) changed from W25X32VSFIG to W25Q32BVSFIG
    • Starting with Revision G of the EVM, version information is stored in a user accessible I2C EEPROM on the main board at EEPROM address 0 (I2C address 0x50). Details are available in the EVM FAQ.
    • The only change on Revision F is the DM8168 device is marked differently:
      • Rev F: TMS320DM8168ACYG2
      • Rev E: TMX320DM8168ACYG
    • Side-by-side Comparison of Rev B and Rev E EVM Schematics: File:TI816xEVM RevB to RevE Compare.pdf
      • Major changes to EVM schematics:
        • Move to Micron DDR3 from Elpida; made change to address DDR VTT power supply sequencing issue – pages 21 and 53
        • Changes to capacitors around TPS65232, and improvement to capacitor placement in the layout, to avoid electrical overstress of TPS65232 – page 51
        • Changes to resistors for AVS control and to pull GPIO3 low – page 54
        • Use of AVS enabled DM8168 devices
        • Capacitor change to address USB VBUS power supply sequencing issue – page 56
        • Resistor change to fix PCIe Reset issue – page 28
        • Also refer to Revision History on last page of EVM schematics.
  • EVM HW Mods for AVS
  • Expansion I/O Daughter Card Specifications: Rev C I/O Dcard
  • Reference Designs:
    • Z3-DM8168-MOD is a compact OEM-ready module from Z3 Technology based on the DM8168.
