Mistral UART and CAN Daughter Cards for TI Sitara AM1x, OMAP-L1x EVM

Mistral introduced UART and CAN daughter cards for Texas Instruments (TI) evaluation modules (EVMs) based on TI’s Sitara AM1x microprocessors (MPUs) and OMAP-L1x application processors for embedded industrial, medical and consumer designs. The UART daughter card has interfaces for soft UART, hard UART, and soft DIR. The CAN daughter card features soft CAN and hard CAN bus interfaces. The Mistral plug-in daughter cards help developers leverage the benefits of the PRU features on the AM1x and OMAP-L1x processors.
