Enables real-time processing, connectivity and control system for Industry 4.0 applications
Mistral Solutions, a technology design and system engineering company, announces the release of AM65x Industrial System on Module (SoM), based on the Texas Instruments’ AM6548 SoC. The AM65x Industrial SoM is an easy to use, compact, lightweight SoM that provides very high processing power for Industrial Control and Communication applications.
The AM65xfeatures a 64-bit quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 at 1.1GHz and a dual-core Arm Cortex-R5F MCU subsystem. With 2GB DDR4 memory on the SoC and a wide range industrial interfaces enabled via inter-board connectors, the SoM supports industrial communication through the PRU-ICSS subsystem on the SoC supporting protocols like ModBus, OpenCAN, ProfiNET, ProfiBUS, Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT, EnDAT/EQEP, CCLink IEField and PWM control.
Ideal for a range of industrial applications
Mistral’s Industrial SoM enables industrial communication and control solutions using serial, Ethernet-based, PCIe, and industrial real-time interfaces. It is ideal for designing Industrial Programmable Controllers (PLC), Factory Automation with Safety Functions, Industrial PC and Industrial Robots, Grid Infrastructure Protection Relays, Edge Computing and Robotic Motor Drives.
“Mistral has always been an active player in Industrial domain, offering various industrial development platforms and IoT services. The AM65x Industrial SoM with its powerful features, is the latest addition to our list of industrial platforms, which will enable development of Industry 4.0 applications. We will be supplying the SoM in volumes to companies aiming to build and deploy industrial products”, said Srinivas Panapakam, VP – PES Sales & Business development, Mistral Solutions.
