SolidRun, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance System on Module (SOM) solutions, Single Board Computers (SBC) and network edge solutions, today announces its new SOM powered by the AM64x processor family from Texas Instruments (TI). Featuring best-in-class real-time and low-latency processing, this new SOM targets industrial IoT and industrial machinery applications.
The AM64x SOM is aimed at applications that require a combination of precise real-time processing and application processing, and comes equipped with two Cortex A53 cores for OS-level and applications processing, up to four Cortex R5F cores for real-time computing, servo control and functional safety, and an isolated Cortex M4 MCU channel for error monitoring. This SOM also packs a ton of innovative features that make it excellent for mission-critical applications, such as an integrated MCU subsystem and diagnostic libraries, inline ECC, an isolated Cortex-M4 core that can work independently from the SoC, secure boot with hardware-enforced root of trust and more.
Architected using TI’s efficient 16nm FinFET production technology, these new TI AM64x processor-based SOMs consume little power, support fanless design, and are robust to extreme environments ranging from -40°C to 85°C.
