The TMDXIDK3359 is "Obsolete" and no longer available. However the TMDSICE3359 is recommended for industrial communications and is less complex to use and is readily available at a lower cost via the TI eStore.

The AM3359 Industrial Development Kit (IDK) is a full-featured application development platform for evaluating the capabilities and features of Sitara™ AM3359 ARM® Cortex™-A8 Processors for industrial applications.

The AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 Processors are optimized for industrial communications, industrial control, and industrial drives applications. The AM335x processors integrate a broad range of industrial communication standards that work on Ethernet, CAN, and RS-485 physical layers.

Target Applications

The IDK hardware and included software is designed for industrial applications:

  • Industrial sensors and I/O units
  • Industrial communication gateways
  • Industrial drives with integrated communications and multi-axis motor control
  • Programmable logic/automation controllers (PLC/PAC) with integrated industrial communications such as PROFIBUS, CAN and Ethernet/IP

Block Diagram

  • A high level block diagram is shown to the right to provide an overview of the capabilities and connectivity available on the IDK.
