Sitara processors – Industrial drives

Single chip drive to connect, control and communicate

  • Multi-protocol feedback integration through the PRU-ICSS.
  • Field-oriented control for variable frequency drive motor control that leverages improved Vector Floating Point Unit.
  • Certified multi-protocol industrial Ethernet integration enabling real-time deterministic communication through the PRU ICSS.

Sitara Processor benefits for industrial drives

  • Single-chip for motor control and communication
  • Integrated multi-protocol industrial Ethernet
  • Supports encoder feedback
  • Field-oriented control for variable-speed drives
