AM3517/05 is a high-performance ARM
Cortex-A8 microprocessor with speeds up to 600 MHz. The device offers 3D graphics acceleration
while also supporting numerous peripherals, including DDR2, CAN, EMAC, and USB OTG PHY that are
well suited for industrial apllications.
The processor can support other applications, including:
Home and industrial automation
Human machine Interface
The device supports high-level operating systems (OSs), such
- Windows® CE
The following subsystems are part of the device:
- Microprocessor unit (MPU) subsystem based on the ARM Cortex-A8
- PowerVR SGX graphics accelerator (AM3517 device only) subsystem
for 3D graphics acceleration to support display and gaming effects
- Display subsystem with several features for multiple concurrent image
manipulation, and a programmable interface supporting a wide variety of displays. The display subsystem also supports NTSC/PAL video out.
- High-performance interconnects provide high-bandwidth data transfers for multiple
initiators to the internal and external memory controllers and to on-chip peripherals. The device
also offers a comprehensive clock-management scheme.
AM3517/05 devices are available
in a 491-pin BGA package and a 484-pin PBGA package.
