SBC-T43: TI AM437x

Optimized for Industrial Embedded Applications

WIDE RANGE OF HIGH-SPEED INTERFACES

Configurable Feature-set

The TI Sitara AM437x high-performance system-on-chip (SoC) is built around the ARM CortexA9 core. The SoC includes POWERVR SGX™ 3D graphics acceleration for rich graphical user interfaces, as well as a co-processor for deterministic, real-time processing including industrial communication protocols, such as EtherCAT®, PROFIBUS®, EnDat and others. Cryptographic acceleration is also available in every CM-T43 device.

CM-T43 is equipped with up to 1GB of onboard DDR3 memory. The DDR3 data bus is 32-bits wide and operates at 400 MHz clock frequency (DDR3-800).
