SBC-AM57x: TI AM5728 / AM5718

Optimized for Industrial Embedded Applications


High Performance Graphics and Image Processing

The TI Sitara AM57x system-on-chip (SoC) is built around dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 CPU. Dual C66x VLIW DSP cores and dedicated ARM Cortex-M4 IPUs make AM572x a powerful platform for image and video processing systems, while dual PowerVR SGX544 GPU and IVA-HD video subsystem enable multimedia demanding applications.

AM5728 includes two 32-bit DDR controllers (EMIF1 and EMIF2). AM5718 includes one 32-bit DDR controller (EMIF1). CL-SOM-AM57x is equipped with up to 4GB of onboard DDR3 memory. The DDR3 data bus is 32-bits wide and operates at 533 MHz clock frequency (DDR3-1066).
