In conjunction with SPS, the
world’s largest industrial trade show in Nuremburg, Germany, today we announced
our new industrial automation solution to ease and accelerate industrial
designs. Imagine using one chip that contains all the industrial
communications protocols you need for your design, including EtherCAT®,
Ethernet/IP, PROFIBUS®, PROFINET®, POWERLINK and SERCOS
This is all possible with TI’s new Sitara™ AM335x ARM
Cortex-A8 microprocessors because they offer an ARM + programmable real-time
unit (PRU) architecture and several other key, on-chip industrial
peripherals — CAN, ADC, USB + PHY and two-port Gigabit Ethernet with IEEE1588 —
to enable fast network connectivity and rapid data throughput, as well as
connection to sensors, actuators and motor control. This type of
architecture eliminates the need for an ASIC or FPGA and can result in an
overall bill of materials cost reduction of as much as 30 percent!
So, what type of industrial applications could you design
with these processors? Here are a few ideas:
It’s your turn! How would this unique, one-chip
architecture specifically benefit your design?
Thanks and Best Regards,
Srikanth (Srik) Gurrapu
