Industrial Communications Engine using TI’s AM3359

Industrial Communications Engine using TI’s AM3359

The Texas Instruments' certified hardware and software components for PROFINET IRT v2.3 device applications is the leading industrial Ethernet standard used in numerous Industrial segments and end-equipments that require real-time deterministic exchange of IO data and additional bandwidth for service and diagnostics.

The AM3359 industrial communications engine (ICE) is a development platform targeted for systems that specifically focus on the industrial communications capabilities of the Sitara, AM335x, ARM Cortex®-A8 processors

The AM335x, ARM Cortex-A8 processors integrate the programmable real-time unit (PRU) that has been architected to implement the real-time communications technologies used in a broad range of industrial automation equipment. It enables low-foot-print designs with minimal external components and with best-in-class low power performance.
