MitySOM-AM62A System on ModuleProduction-ready Sitara AM62Ax-based System on Module

Product status: In Development


The MitySOM-AM62A family of system-on-modules features the Texas Instruments Sitara AM62Ax Processor. The module includes (optional) eMMC FLASH, (optional) Octal or Quad SPI NOR FLASH, and LPDDR4 RAM memory subsystems. A MitySOM-AM62 provides a complete and flexible CPU infrastructure for highly integrated embedded systems.

The onboard AM62Ax 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.

In addition to the Cortex-A53, the AM62Ax family also offers a Single Core Arm Cortex-R5F MCU at up to 800 MHz as well as a deep learning accelerator engine that is based on a single C7x DSP core. The Cortex-R5F runs independently of the main Cortex-A53 MPU complex and has access to all the on-chip peripherals as well as all external memory and can be used for any purpose. Typical applications for the R5F might include managing an EtherCAT master interface, providing safety critical software operation or real-time handling of attached peripherals, etc.

The deep learning accelerator provides a C7x floating point DSP at up to 40 GFLOPS paired with a Matrix Multiple Accelerator that supports up to 2 TOPS (8b) for artificial intelligence (AI) applications.  Coupled with on-chip Vision Processing Accelerators and camera Image Signal Processing, the AM62Ax processor is a good fit for edge AI applications.
