Starterkit STKa57xx set

The core of the STKa57xx set is the TQMa57xx module with a Single/Dual Cortex®-A15 CPU. The components contained in the starter kit constitute a modular system enabling you to develop your own product ideas. Development of graphic interfaces can be started immediately using the prepared combination of closed display unit and starter kit that are matched to each other. To develop your own hardware you can use the certified and qualified circuit components of the starter kit in your own designs.
