SolidRun TI AM64X Sitara Series SOM and HummingBoard-T AM64X Carrier Boards For IoT And Embedded Computing

With the rising demand for embedded edge computing devices, SolidRun has expanded its hardware ecosystem with its newly launched System-on-module (SOM) and Single Board Computer (SBC) series. The products – Sitara AM6442R SOM, Sitara AM6442A SOM, and HummingBoard-T AM64X SBC have specifications to Specially support cost-effective, real-time, and low latency industrial solutions.

The Sitara AM6442R and Sitara AM6442A SOMs are designed based on Texas Instruments (TI) AM64X processors to offer precise real-time processing and multi-protocol industrial Ethernet solutions. These devices come with 2x Arm Cortex-A53 cores, 4x Cortex-R5F, and one isolated Cortex-M4 core processor. The Arm Cortex-A53 comes with a 1.0GHz clock speed and aims at handling OS and application processing, the Cortex-R5F running at 800MHz is for real-time data computing, the Cortex-M4 core with 400MHz speed is to deal with error monitoring and management. Both SOMs feature an onboard 8GB eMMC storage and a 1GB DDR4 with inline ECC safety protocol. They also feature 2x Gigabit industrial subsystems (PRU-CSSG) for industrial Ethernet solutions, Gen 2.0 PCle, USB 3.0, SPI, I2C, CAN, ADC, PWM, GPIOs, JTAG, Hirose DF40 connectors, and M2M communication support. But, while the Sitara AM6442A has no UART, the Sitara AM6442R has up to 9 UART for handling serial communication. The duo SOM takes in 5V as supply voltage and 3.3V as I/O voltage.
