Overview

The AM3359 Industrial Communications Engine (ICE) is a development platform targeted for systems that specifically focus on the industrial communications capabilities of the Sitara AM335x Arm® Cortex™-A8 processors.

The AM335x Arm Cortex-A8 processors integrate the Programmable Real-time Unit (PRU) that has been architected to implement the real-time communication technologies used in a broad range of industrial automation equipment. It enables low foot print designs with minimal external components and with best in class low power performance.

TMDSICE3359 is a revised version of TMDXICE3359 with production AM3359 silicon and a notable improvements including:

    • Option of controlling the Ethernet ports from PRU or from 2-port GbE switch
    • On-board OLED display
    • DDR3 memory
    • Support for larger NOR Flash upto 32Mb
      • Industrial communication modules
      • Industrial communication interfaces for sensors and input/output (I/O) systems
      • Industrial communication gateways
      • Industrial drives with integrated communications
      • Motor feedback systems
