ARM CortexTM-A15 System on Module

  • supports up to 1.5 GHz processing performance


The phyCORE-AM57x System on Module supports Texas Instruments Single- and Dualcore, pin compatible, ARM® Cortex™-A15 based solutions. Best-in-class CPU performance is complemented by high performance 2D/3D graphics, advanced video accelerator supporting 1080p, and a rich peripheral set. With TI's C66x DSPs built into the silicon, available low-latency Industrial Communication System (PRU-ICSS) and the rugged PCB interconnects of PHYTEC SOMs the phyCORE-AM57x SOM is aimed at advanced system developers looking to use SOMs in mission-critical applications that must endure extreme industrial environments.

phyCORE-AM57x is designed for Human Machine Interface, Aviation Control, Industrial Automation, Machine Vision, Medical Imaging und Networking applications.

Supported Processor

The Texas Instruments’ AM57x family of applications processors leads the Sitara™ family with 10,500 DMIPs and each Core running up to 1.5 GHz. With single and dual core offerings, the fully integrated mixed processor solution features the ARM® Cortex™-A15 and ARM® Cortex™-M4 as well as two TI C66x DSP cores and PRU-ICSS for real time-time control.
