The phyCORE®-AM65x module brings secure boot, multiprotocol gigabit industrial communication, graphics, functional safety features and time-sensitive-networking (TSN) to the phyCORE® family. The phyCORE®-AM65x SOM is ideal for industrial communication systems, factory automation, edge computing, grid infrastructure and applications where high reliability is needed. Utilize the quad Arm® Cortex®-A53 cores to run your application, the 6 Industrial PRU interfaces for time sensitive communication protocols and the isolated dual Cortex®-R5F cores for functional safety support.
