This part is available in a different configuration as a CFA200 series display demonstration board.

CFA10036 Breakout Board

Part Number: CFA10037

Description

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

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 serious hardware-level debugging, signals are brought out for connection to a compatible JTAG debugger

Product Update #10588: R_MDIO needs populated with a 1.5K resistor

Products Affected: CFA10037, CFA921-TS, CFA920-TS
Date Issued: May 22, 2014
Summary: R_MDIO needs populated with a 1.5K resistor
Description: R_MDIO needs populated with a 1.5K resistor so that the device gets properly set up by Linux on start-up.
Reason: MDIO times out before it can be detected.
Recommendation: 1. Install 1.5k pull-up to R_MDIO.
