AM65x industrial development kit (IDK)


Order now


The AM65x industrial development kit (IDK) is a development platform for evaluating the industrial communication and control capabilities of Sitara™ AM65x processors for applications in factory automation, drives, robotics, grid infrastructure, and more. AM65x processors include three PRU-ICSS (Programmable Real-time Unit for Industrial Communications) sub-systems which can be used for gigabit industrial Ethernet protocols such as Profinet, EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, and others.

  • Up to 6 industrial gigabit Ethernet ports and 1 standard gigabit Ethernet port that can be used concurrently
  • 4GB DDR4 with ECC
  • Profibus connection and industrial I/O header
  • On-board 16GB eMMC
  • On-board 512Mb OSPI flash
  • 2-lane PCIe Gen3.1, USB 2.0 and CSI-2 interfaces

  • Assembled IDK
  • SD card
  • USB cable
  • Ethernet cable
  • Documentation
