Quick Links


This page contains technical information for the PHYTEC phyCORE-AM57x. Look through the various tabs to find documentation, software releases, diagrams and drawings, and more. This page should help you get started with your development utilizing the phyCORE-AM57x.

Working with an Evaluation Kit?

If you have ordered an evaluation kit for the phyCORE-AM57x you should locate the "Evaluation Kits" tab and find your specific kit. The associated evaluation kit page has more detailed information on the kit including QuickStart guides, software images, carrier board design information and more.

Designing a Custom Carrier Board?

Check out the "Documentation", "Diagrams and Drawings", and "Pinmux and Design Tools" tabs for specifications and design guidelines.

Developing Software?

The BSPs on the "Software" tab can be used as a reference for developing your production ready software application. The BSPs support the phyCORE-AM57x and PHYTEC provides reference images and source code that target PHYTEC evaluation kits featuring PHYTEC SOMs and SBCs. If you are adapting the BSP to your own custom SOM or custom carrier board then you will want to use the closest evaluation kit configuration as your reference and modify the BSP accordingly.
