TIs latest SoC IoT gateway is aimed at object and gesture recognition. Texas Instruments has launched a System-on-Chip (SoC) for the Internet of Things (IoT) gateway carrying an Arm Cortex-A53 for object and gesture recognition.
The AM623 Sitara MPU is a low-cost family of processors that are built specifically for Linux application development. They use a scalable Arm Cortex-A53 core that carries a higher level of performance and many embedded features. The features include dual-display options, 3D graphics accelerations, and an extensive list of peripherals.
The AM623x device is suitable for automotive and industrial applications and offers intelligent features and an optimized power architecture.
Some of the recommended uses for the AM623 family of SoCs are
- EV Charging stations
- Driver monitoring systems
- industrial HMI
- Touchless building access
The AM623x Sitara is an industrial-grade processor in a 13x13mm package (ALW) and meets the AEC-Q100 automotive standard in a 17.2 x 17.2 mm (AMC) package. All automotive and industrial functional safety regulations can be addressed using the integrated Cortex-M4F cores.
Regulations can also be addressed using the dedicated peripherals which can be isolated from the AM62x processor.
The I/O interfaces also include 3x Gigabit Ethernet ports, one internal and two external that feature Time-Sensitive Networking support. There is an additional PRU module on the device that enables real-time I/O ability. This feature is customer-facing, for enhanced design functionality. There is an extensive set of peripherals that enable system-level connectivity such as USB, Camera, OSPI, CAN-FD, MMC/SD, and GPMC for the parallel host interface to external ASIC or FPGA.
The A62x family of processors also sup[port secure boot with a built-in Hardware Security Module, that employs advanced power management for support of power-sensitive and portable applications.
The products using the AM62X processors in SoCs are the AM623 IoT and gateway SoC with the Arm Cortex-A53-based object and gesture recognition and the AM625 Human-Machine Interaction SoC with Arm Cortex-A53 based edge AI, and full HD dual display.Sponsor this Article
