Scalable General Purpose Embedded

phyCORE®-AM62x

Root Part #: PCM-071
This item will be released at a future date.

Low power, high performance for multimedia applications

Product Overview

The phyCORE®-AM62x is a scalable system on module designed to be deployed in a wide variety of embedded applications from edge computing devices to industrial HMIs and to headless gateways. Measuring in at 43 mm x 32 mm, it’s one of PHYTECs smallest SOMs to date. The compact form factor, available with board-to-board connectors as well as a direct solder variant, has an extensive 240-pin interconnect supporting common protocols such as Ethernet, CAN, UART, I2C, SPI but also rich multimedia with dual display, MIPI CSI-2 camera, and audio.

Features

Advanced Multimedia Capabilities

On chip GPU, dual display, MIPI CSI-2, and audio. Need HDMI? Use a validated PHYTEC reference circuit to add to your system.

Mainline Linux

PHYTEC commits to upstream support of the phyCORE-AM62x System on Module. With support for the TI AM62x processor already available in the Linux kernel, PHYTEC extends this commitment by supporting the SOM in both U-Boot and Linux.

Security

Work with PHYTEC to add Secure Boot to your application. All phyCORE-AM62x SOMs have the ability to burn security keys to the processor and establish root-of-trust by signing software images to ensure only trusted code is run on your device.

Cost Optimized

Customization options to reduce Bill of Materials include scalable processor, depopulation of connectors as well as the option for direct solder version for complete elimination of connector cost.
