Evaluation of circuit tree generated schematic design with a AM3352 SOM EVB Board

We would be running a capability test with a circuit tree processor library part am3352 processors and a olimex based design which is a open source hardware boards listed at

Olimex SOM EVB

and

Olimex Am3352 SOM

The purpose of the test is to check the following

  1. Components selected by circuit tree and its comparison with the various peripherals selected by olimex Board.
  2. Pin Mux connections from the circuit tree versus the board.
  3.  Power, clocks and reset component selection and strategies by circuit tree engine to generate the design.

The processor lies on a system on module which connects with a base board where other peripherals are listed out. Our first goal is to create a board with similar peripherals connected by the olimex design.

We entered the requirements in the requirements editor as shown below in the picture and then generated the design. For more details of how to enter a requirements you can refer our post Guide for creating a fresh design

For more detailed overview of the requirements addition process we have covered it in our next blog.

The design generated by the circuit tree matches the am3352 design in terms of peripheral connectivity. There were differences in some parts which can be seen in the table below.

Circuit tree engine is able to generate a complex board design/schematic in a minute’s time after all the requirements are entered. We understand the pain of generating a embedded design and allowed the tool to simplify the complete design generation.

The generated design along with the bill of material cost can be downloaded through the link for the comparison.
