This reference design is a BeagleBone Black add-on board that allows users get to know TI’s powerful Programmable Real-Time Unit (PRU) core and basic functionality. The PRU is a low-latency microcontroller subsystem integrated in the Sitara AM335x and AM437x family of devices. The PRU core is optimized for deterministic, real-time processing, direct access to I/Os and ultra-low-latency requirements. With LEDs and push buttons for GPIO, audio, a temp sensor, optional character display and more, this add-on board includes schematics, bill of materials (BOM), design files, and design guide to teach the basics of the PRU.
