PHYTEC: System on Module featuring Texas Instruments AM65x Sitara™ Processor

At Electronica 2018, PHYTEC showcased the phyCORE®-AM65x System on Module and a Rapid Development Kit based on the Sitara™AM65x processor series. The module offers Secure Boot, interfaces for industrial multi-protocol gigabit communication and comprehensive graphics features. Initial samples for the phyCORE®-AM65x System on Module will be available in Q1/Q2 2019 for selected projects


PHYTEC adds to its phyCORE® product line with the announcement of the phyCORE®-AM65x System on Module (SOM) based on the Texas Instruments (TI) Sitara™ AM65x processors. The phyCORE®-AM65x module brings secure boot, multiprotocol gigabit industrial communication, graphics, functional safety features and time-sensitive-networking (TSN) to the phyCORE® family. The phyCORE®-AM65x SOM is ideal for industrial communication systems, factory automation, edge computing, grid infrastructure and applications where high reliability is needed. Utilize the quad Arm® Cortex®-A53 cores to run your application, the 6 industrial PRU interfaces for time sensitive communication protocols and the isolated dual Cortex®-R5F cores for functional safety support. In conjunction with the launch of the phyCORE®-AM65x SOM, PHYTEC also introduced the phyCORE®-AM65x Rapid Development Kit – a new kit that helps customers get started on integrating PHYTEC hardware and software with customer software and product designs. With the launch of the phyCORE®-AM65x SOM and development kit, PHYTEC offers a complete line of high-quality, reliable, and scalable products based on the Texas Instruments AM65x processors. PHYTEC’s SOMs offer next-generation technology for industry 4.0 embedded systems: speech recognition and gesture control, connectivity, image processing, machine learning, superior graphics performance as well as sophisticated security
