Jacinto™ DRA821x processors, based on the Armv8 64-bit architecture, are optimized for gateway systems with cloud connectivity. The System-on-Chip (SoC) design reduces system-level costs and complexity through integration—notably, a system MCU, functional safety and security features, and an Ethernet switch for high-speed communication. Integrated diagnostics and functional safety features are targeted to ASIL-D and SIL 3 certification requirements. Real-time control and low-latency communication are enabled by a PCIe controller and a TSN capable Gigabit Ethernet switch.
Up to four general-purpose Arm Cortex-R5F subsystems can handle low-level, timing-critical processing tasks and leave the Arm Cortex-A72 core unencumbered for advanced and cloud-based applications.
