Product Announcement from Texas Instruments Digital Signal Processors & ARM Microprocessors

Sitara™ AM335x ARM® microprocessors-Image

TI's new $5 feature-packed Sitara™ ARM® Cortex™-A8 microprocessors enable new, robust end products while maintaining ARM9™ prices and power levelsNew AM3352, AM3354, AM3356, AM3357, AM3358 and AM3359, Sitara ARM Cortex-A8 microprocessors (MPUs) deliver up to 720 MHz ARM Cortex-A8 performance with robust peripheral set and flexible power management modes that consume as little as 7mW of power. These MPUs are ideal for a variety of fan-less portable navigation terminals, handheld gaming devices and home and building automation control systems as well as industrial automation devices including drives and I/O-level devices, industrial PLC applications and HMI products. Optimized for system and peripheral integration, the AM335x Sitara ARM Cortex-A8 MPUs provide multiple high-performance interfaces, such as, USB2.0 w/ PHY, Gigabit Ethernet two-port switch, CAN, and more. The PRU enables real-time industrial communications capability (master and slave) supporting popular protocols, such as EtherCAT®, Ethernet/IP, PROFIBUS®, PROFINET®, POWERLINK, and SERCOS III.*AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 MPUs key features include:**275 - 720 MHz ARM Cortex-A8 core with high-level operating system support including Linux™ and Android™ with multiple power and performance operating points**Integrated high-bandwidth connectivity peripherals (USB2.0 w/ PHY, Gigabit Ethernet two-port switch, CAN, PRU, Crypto, LPDDR1/DDR2/DDR3 interfaces) for device flexibility and quick transmission of data on and off the chip while saving board space and bill of materials cost by as much as $40**Integrated 3D graphics and touch screen controller for advanced GUIs and touch screen interfaces**On-chip, production-ready, industrial Ethernet and Fieldbus communication protocols with master and slave functionality eliminate the need for an external ASIC/FPGA and save more than 30 percent on BOM costs**TI EZ software development kits for Linux and Android allows developers to begin evaluation within minutes and includes development software and example code into a single package with only one installation

**AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 MPU StarterWare™ software suite provides a microcontroller-like development environment, without requiring an operating system
