Description

The AM437x/AMIC120 Industrial Development Kit (IDK) is an application development platform for evaluating the industrial communication and control capabilities of Sitara™ AM4379AM4377 and AMIC120 processors for industrial applications.

The  AM4379AM4377 and AMIC120 processors are ideal for industrial communications, industrial control, and industrial drives applications. The AM437x and AMIC120 processors integrate a quad-core Programmable Real-time Unit (PRU) that has been architected to implement the real-time communication technologies used in a broad range of industrial automation equipment. It enables low foot print designs with minimal external components and with best in class low power performance.

Target Applications

The IDK hardware and software are designed for industrial applications:

  • Industrial drives
  • Industrial sensors and I/O units
  • Industrial communication gateways
  • Programmable logic/automation controllers (PLC/PAC) with integrated industrial communications such as EtherCAT and feedback such as EnDat.
