Logic PD's product-ready software and hardware platforms fast forward your product development while reducing risk and controlling costs. The Zoom AM1808 eXperimenter Kit is a low-cost application development kit for evaluating the functionality of Texas Instruments' energy-efficient SitaraTM ARM AM1808 microprocessor and Logic PD's System on Module (SOM).

Application development is performed right on the product-ready AM1808 SOM-M1 and software Board Support Packages (BSPs) included in the kit, which enables you to seamlessly transfer your application code and hardware into production.

The AM1808 SOM-M1 is ideal for applications that require high-speed data transfer and high-capacity storage, such as test and measurement, public safety radios, music effects and intelligent occupancy sensors. The AM1808 offers a universal parallel port (uPP) and is the first TI device with an integrated Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) interface. For medical, industrial, audio, and communication products, the AM1808 SOM‑M1 allows for powerful versatility, long-life, and greener products.

The Zoom AM1808 eXperimenter Kit includes the AM1808 SOM-M1, application baseboard, 4.3" WQVGA LCD, accessories, and software required for development work.
