Platform for evaluating the control capabilities of processors


The AM65x Industrial Development Kit (IDK) from Texas Instruments is a development platform for evaluating the industrial communication and control capabilities of Sitara AM65x processors for applications in factory automation, drives, robotics, grid infrastructure, and more. 

AM65x processors include three PRU-ICSS (Programmable Real-time Unit for Industrial Communications) sub-systems which can be used for gigabit industrial Ethernet protocols such as Profinet, EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, and others.


  • Up to 6 industrial gigabit Ethernet ports and 1 standard gigabit Ethernet port that can be used concurrently.
  • 4GB DDR4 with ECC.
  • Profibus connection and industrial I/O header.
  • On-board 16GB eMMC.
  • On-board 512Mb OSPI Flash.
  • Two-lane PCIe Gen3.1, USB 2.0 and CSI-2 interfaces.
