MitySOM-AM62 System on ModuleProduction-ready Sitara AM62x-based System on Module

Product status: In Development

 

Overview

The MitySOM-AM62 family of system-on-modules features the Texas Instruments Sitara AM62x Processor. The module includes (optional) eMMC FLASH, (optional) Octal or Quad SPI NOR FLASH, and DDR4 RAM memory subsystems. A MitySOM-AM62 provides a complete and flexible CPU infrastructure for highly integrated embedded systems.

The onboard AM62x processor provides up to a Quad Core Cortex-A53 64-bit RISC processor with a NEON SIMD coprocessor. This microprocessor unit (MPU) can run a rich set of real-time operating systems containing software applications programming interfaces (APIs) expected by modern system designers. The ARM architecture supports several operating systems, including Linux and Android.

In addition to the Cortex-A53, the Sitara AM62x family also offers a Single Core Arm Cortex-M4F MCU at up to 400 MHz as well as a dual core 32 bit Programmable Real-Time Units (PRUs) that may be clocked at up to 333 MHz. The Cortex-M4F and the PRUs are RISC processors that run independently of the main Cortex-A53 MPU complex and have access to all the on-chip peripherals as well as all external memory. These can be used for any purpose.
