Targeted for PROFINET slave communications, this development platform allows designers to implement PROFINET communications standards in a broad range of industrial automation equipment. It enables low foot print designs in applications such as industrial automation, factory automation or industrial communication with minimal external components and with best in class low power performance.
AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 processor-based design enables 30% system BOM savings by eliminating external ASIC/FPGA PROFINET IO Device for conformance classes A and B certified by COMDEC High performance PROFINET cut-through switch supports 250us cycle time with 8 real-time connections. Very robust PROFINET switch with 4 priority queues per port and content filter passing Netload class 3. Free board support package and industrial software development kit from TI Support other industrial communications with the same hardware (e.g., EtherCAT, PROFIBUS, Ethernet/IP and more) Production Ready development platform sub-system which includes schematics, BOM, user guides, application notes, white paper, software, demos and more
