Industrial communication module for nextgen Industry 4.0 applications.
The phyCORE®-AM65x is an insert-ready System on Module ideal for industrial communication systems and factory automation. The phyCORE-AM65x SOM provides the features that next-gen equipment focuses on like connectivity, automation, machine learning, and real-time data. These require high performance processing with up to 4 CPU cores, multiprotocol industrial networking support for reliable machine to machine communication, as well as general purpose interface controls like GPIO, SPI, and I2C. This SOM has one of PHYTEC’s largest interconnect with 180 pins available including access to 6 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces.
As heavy duty machinery becomes more automated it is important to ensure the safety of factory workers who interact with the equipment. Added functional safety features such as a dedicated MCU Safe Island on the AM65x processor help make sure critical tasks always remain active.
The phyCORE-AM65x SOM can be populated with a pre-certified 2.4 or 5 GHz WiFi solution to enable your system as an access point or connect to remote sensors.
The phyCORE-AM65x SOM supports the Sitara AM65x 6 PRU-ICSSG interfaces. These interfaces can be loaded with various industrial communication protocol stacks.
Industry 4.0 introduces new guidelines such as TSN for real-time data transfer. Get started with 10/100Mbps protocols such as EtherCAT and migrate to Gigabit protocols as they become available.
