Description

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. 

Features
  • PRU low-latency microcontroller subsystem integrated in Sitara Cortex-A8 based AM335x processor
  • 32-Bit RISC architecture, 200 MHz (5 ns) per instruction, single cycle execution, dedicated instruction and data RAM, additional shared RAM, 200 MHz ( 5ns) I/O interface
  • BeagleBone Black compatible add-on board includes push buttons, I/O header, basic audio, UART (DB9), HDQ temperature sensor, proto board area, optional 8x2 LCD character display
  • Complete set of reference materials including schematics, BOM, board design files, and design guide
