BLACK365 is a high performance credit card size Single Board Computer optimised for use in embedded projects. Black365 combines the power of the Texas Instruments DM365 processor with a comprehensive set of peripherals optimized for high functionality, low power and small form factor.



This low power credit card size board is ARM9 based and is designed for high performance digital media applications and Supports a Range of Encode, Decode, and Video Quality Operations. The BLACK365 is suitable for applications such as: Video surveillance, media playback and camera-driven applications, such as video doorbells, digital signage, digital video recorders and portable media players.

With the BLACK365 Developers can now deliver pixel-perfect images at up to 720p H.264 at 30fps in their digital video designs without concerns of video format support, constrained network bandwidth, limited system storage capacity or cost with the new TMS320DM365 digital media processor based on DaVinci technology from Texas Instruments.

Season Design Technology has engineered the high risk elements of the system. You receive a fully tested module. The BLACK365 is a RoHS compliant board. Low power consumption in normal operation and during sleep modes make the BLACK365 ideal for battery operated systems. The BLACK365 operates as a standalone module requiring only a single 5V input.

Alternatively customers can add the BLACKDEV - a services board for the BLACK365 – or use BLACK365 as a “super component” in their systems. Preconfigured operating systems are available for the BLACK365. Development is speeded by the availability of the LaunchPad Application Development Kit for BLACK365.
