Renewable Energy Gateway Solutions

AM335x is a simple solution for renewable energy gateways because it has a large industrial peripheral set and flexible, easy to use software including mainline Linux and commercial options.

Renewable Energy Gateways connect solar or wind inverters with users, utilities, and the cloud. Sitara ARM processors provide a wide range of peripherals to connect to both the energy side, such as a solar inverter, and to the rest of the world.
