i.MX35 PDK 1.5

Product Brief

The i.MX35 Product Development Kit (PDK) provides a robust hardware and software platform for the Windows® Embedded CE 6.0 and Linux® environments, based on the exceptional capabilities of the Freescale i.MX35 applications processor.

The PDK offers optimized middleware and codecs that enable your critical resources to focus on what makes your product unique in the market, because Freescale has completed the fundamental elements for your design.

The i.MX PDK includes an optimized and validated board-support-package (BSP).

You perform product design and application development on the i.MX PDK, which comprises a “three-stack” set – separate CPU,

Personality and Debug modules - connected together for software development and debugging purposes.

The modules are designed for essential re-use.

The Debug module is the common debugging board across all i.MX PDKs; it provides the hardware necessary for a software engineer to develop and debug applications and any accompanying software. The Personality module is a peripherals and connectivity board for product development.

1 Benefits

Hardware and Software designers can use this platform as a reference design and start immediately on their projects. With a near end product platform, the hardware designers can develop a custom product quickly and the software designers can begin working long before any custom hardware is available.

The integrated design methodology (hardware and software) greatly reduces your development time.

2 Features

The i.MX35 PDK features support its architecture, design, operation, and functionality:

• Near form-factor demonstration modules and working platforms.
