The AM5729 Industrial Development Kit (IDK) is a development platform for evaluating the industrial communication and control capabilities of Sitara AM572x processors for applications in factory automation, drives, robotics, grid infrastructure, machine learning and more. This platform is shared with the TMDSIDK574 IDK, highlighting the pin-compatibility of the AM572x and AM574x processors.
Machine learning (inference) and analytics at the edge is accelerated with 4x Embedded Vision Engines (EVE) cores. Learn more.
AM572x processors include dual PRU-ICSS (Programmable Real-time Unit for Industrial Communications) sub-systems which can be used for industrial Ethernet protocols such as Profinet, EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, and others. AM5729 enables the EVE cores for ML applications. The TMDSIDK572 breaks out six ports of Ethernet, four of which can be used concurrently: 2x Gb Ethernet ports and 2x 10/100 Ethernet ports from the PRU-ICSS subsystems.
