The phyCORE-AM57x SOM supports the Texas Instruments single and dual-core, 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.

The AM57x Processor

Texas Instruments AM57x Icon black
The Texas Instruments’ AM57x processor family 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.

Board-To-Board Interfaces

The phyCORE®-AM57x SOM utilizes ruggedized connectors. Most of the advanced AM57x interface signals are routed to our high-density PCB interconnects on the underside of the SOM.

Flexible Flash options

The phyCORE®-AM57x SOM utilizes a dual-flash-footprint that allows for population of SLC NAND or eMMC. Choose the best flash for your application.

Software that is specifically designed for its hardware

The PHYTEC BSP software package is based on TI’s own TISDK. This means that PHYTEC supports all of the TI SDKs for the C66x DSPs, the PowerVR SGX 540, and even TI-RTOS. Start your advanced software application development on a phyCORE®-AM57x SOM now.

Small footprint for small enclosures

There are few solutions in existence that provide the power and complexity of the AM57x processor on an embedded module with dimensions of 55 mm x 45 mm. The small footprint allows you to bring a powerhouse of computing power into your small enclosure.

Simplified for you to work seamlessly

We ship all SOMs with a hardware specific, full Board Support Package.
