The AM574x Industrial Development Kit (IDK) is a development platform for evaluating the industrial communication and control capabilities of Sitara AM574x/2x processors for applications in factory automation, drives, robotics, grid infrastructure, and more. AM574x/2x 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. The TMDXIDK574 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.


  • 2 EVEs
  • 4 Ethernet ports with concurrent operation including 2 from PRU-ICSS
  • DDR3 with ECC
  • Profibus connection, EtherCAT and RS485 Headers
  • On-board eMMC
  • Mini PCIe, USB3, and HDMI connectors
  • As of 01/21/2019 this board comes with a superset for AM5749/AM5748/AM5746/AM5728/AM5726
