This part is available in a different configuration as a CFA200 series display demonstration board.
CFA10036 Breakout Board
Part Number: CFA10037
This carrier board is designed specifically for use with our CFA10036 module, giving you quick and easy access to all the input/output pins.
The CFA10037 ships with a 110VAC, +5v / 1.0A power supply
Latest disk image releases here:
The CFA10037 gives access to all the port pins of the CFA10036, and by extension the port pins of the i.MX28. It also has a prototype area with solid power distribution. All of this is offered in a prototype-friendly 0.1" center format. We made a set of holes that line up with shields designed for an Arduino Uno R3.
By using 0.1" center headers and socketed hook-up wire, you can connect any of the pins on the CFA10036 to any location on the prototype area.
We did give you a hand with the Ethernet PHY and USB A connector, since those will commonly be used, and their PCB layout can be fussy.
For design purposes, please use the specifications in the datasheet.
For reference only.

Part Change Notice #10656: CFA10036, CFA10037, CFA10055, and CFA10056 parts are no longer available to be ordered separately. These parts are now bundled with an appropriate display, software to make a turn-key evaluation platform.

CFA10036, CFA10037, CFA10055, and CFA10056 parts are no longer available to be ordered separately. These parts are now bundled with an appropriate display, software to make a turn-key evaluation platform.
We are releasing a set of pre-configured demonstration boards based on our CFA10036 and CFA10037 products. The new pre-configured parts are:
CFA201 = CFA10055 + CFAF320480C4-035T (was CFA10055-4)
CFA202 = CFA10036-1 on CFA10037 + CFA201
CFA203 = CFA10055 + CFAF320480C4-035T-TS (was CFA10055-8)
CFA204 = CFA10036-1 on CFA10037 + CFA203
CFA205 = CFA10056 + CFAF480800FT2-040T (was CFA0056-4)
CFA206 = CFA10036-1 on CFA10037 + CFA205
CFA207 = CFA10065 + CFAF480640A-035T
CFA208 = CFA10036-1 on CFA10037 + CFA207
CFA209 = CFA10065 + CFAF480640B-035T-TS
CFA210 = CFA10036-1 on CFA10037 + CFA209
As part of this roll-out, the CFA10036 and CFA10037 will no longer be available as stand alone products.
The CFA920 and CFA921, which are also based on the CFA10036 are still available and in production.
Easier to order (no configuration necessary) and lower price for the demonstration boards for the specified displays based on the CFA10036 and CFA10037.
CFA10036 and CFA10037 availability will be very limited beyond CFA200 series parts.
CFA10037, CFA10055, and CFA10056 based parts will not be available for order directly as of 2015-05-20.
CFA200 series parts are available immediately.
The 200 series bundles are priced aggressively compared to the previous price for the same products configured under the old part numbers. See display part pages bundle pricing. Product Update #10588: R_MDIO needs populated with a 1.5K resistor
CFA10037, CFA921-TS, CFA920-TS
May 22, 2014
R_MDIO needs populated with a 1.5K resistor
R_MDIO needs populated with a 1.5K resistor so that the device gets properly set up by Linux on start-up.
MDIO times out before it can be detected.
1. Install 1.5k pull-up to R_MDIO.
2. Use kernel version cfa-3.12.17, commit ID 2cbfe6e36266b82daac0a9e9aa92e0706e306411
Please make sure you use the commit above if you decide to use this method. Product Update #10584: The Linux SOM family has had a kernel and a build update.
