Based on a dual board architecture, the development kit consists of Mistral’s AM65x Industrial SOM built around TI’s AM6548 Processor (With discrete power solution, Memory, Gigabit Ethernet PHY) and a Carrier Board that enables industrial communication and control solutions using serial, Ethernet-based, PCIe, and industrial real-time interfaces.

The AM65x Industrial SOM from Mistral is easy to use, compact, light-weight System on Module providing very high processing power for Industrial applications. With a form factor of just 63mm x 90mm, this is one of the smallest TI Sitara ARM-based AM65x Industrial SOM, AM65x Development Kit, AM65x SoMSOMs available in the market currently.

Mistral’s AM65x SOM consists of 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 @ 1.1GHz with a Dual-core ARM Cortex-R5F MCU subsystem, 2GB DDR4 with 1GB ECC, 8GB eMMC and with major interfaces available via inter-board connectors. Equipped with powerful features, the AM65x Industrial SOM is ideal for designs requiring secure boot, multi-protocol Gigabit communication, graphics, functional safety features and Time Sensitive Networking (TSN).

The feature-rich AM65x SOM supports Industrial communication through PRU-ICSSG (Programmable Real-time Unit for Industrial Communications) sub-system supporting protocols such as Profinet, EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP and cycle-by-cycle PWM control in a very small footprint.
