Jacinto™ 7 DRA829 processors, based on the Arm®v8 64-bit architecture, provide advanced system integration to enable lower system costs of automotive and industrial applications. The integrated diagnostics and functional safety features are targeted to ASIL-B/C or SIL-2 certification/requirements. The integrated microcontroller (MCU) island eliminates the need for an external system MCU. The device features a Gigabit Ethernet switch and a PCIe hub which enables networking use cases that require heavy data bandwidth. Up to four Arm Cortex-R5F subsystems manage low level, timing critical processing tasks leaving the Arm Cortex-A72’s unencumbered for applications. A dual-core cluster configuration of Arm Cortex-A72 facilitates multi-OS applications with minimal need for a software hypervisor.
