Next Generation OMAP™4 mobile software development platform featuring Dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ which is compatible with Lightcrafter 4500 evaluation module (EVM) from Texas Instruments (sold separately).  The PandaBoard 4500 plus the DLP LightCrafter 4500 platform is a powerful self-contained tool for engineers to apply high-precision light steering for a number of applications, such as 3D machine vision and intelligent illumination

Key Features and Benefits

  • Dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ with Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) at 1.2 GHz each. Allows for 150% performance increase over previous ARM Cortex-A8 cores.
  • Mounting connectors for the DLP LightCrafter 4500 EVM, a flexible light steering solution featuring high brightness and resolution with the DLP 0.45 WXGA chipset
  • OMAP4 LCD interface outputs to the DLP LightCrafter 4500 for video and high speed pattern display
  • SD card-based and NAND-based storage are ideal for developing intelligent display applications with DLP LightCrafter 4500 that require large amounts of image storage 
  • Connectivity options – including Ethernet, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB 2.0, a camera expansion port, and an HDMI output –to create self-contained and portable solutions
  • Imagination Technologies’ POWERVR™ SGX540 graphics core supporting all major API's including OpenGL® ES v2.0, OpenGL ES v1.1, OpenVG v1.1 and EGL v1.3 and delivering 2x sustained performance compared to the previous SGX530 core

Evaluation Software

PandaBoard is optimized to run various mobile open source software distributions such as Android, Ubuntu, and more. The the community offers software support for various distributions listed on the  website. 

Information for PandaBoardES Rev B3 users

PandaBoardES Rev B3 uses a different  DDR memory device than the previous versions ( Rev B2 and B1). In order to run the current software (that runs on Rev B2 and B1) on Rev B3, some changes are required to the memory controller setting which is document in the PandaBoardESRevB3 Developers found under the documents tab. 

Uboot and Kernel source that runs on PandaBoard ES Rev B3 can also be found at
