AM572x Sitara™ processors are Arm applications processors built to meet the intense processing needs of modern embedded products.
AM572x devices bring high processing performance through the maximum flexibility of a fully integrated mixed processor solution. The devices also combine programmable video processing with a highly integrated peripheral set. Cryptographic acceleration is available in every AM572x device.
Programmability is provided by dual-core Arm® Cortex®-A15 RISC CPUs with Arm® Neon™ extension, and two TI C66x VLIW floating-point DSP core, and Vision AccelerationPac (with 4x EVEs). The Arm allows developers to keep control functions separate from other algorithms programmed on the DSPs and coprocessors, thus reducing the complexity of the system software.
Additionally, TI provides a complete set of development tools for the Arm and C66x DSP, including C compilers, a DSP assembly optimizer to simplify programming and scheduling, and a debugging interface for visibility into source code execution.
