Developers get FoundriesFactory support for Texas Instruments AM62x processors
Foundries.io has announced that its Edge platform-as-a-service platform is available for the recently launched Texas Instruments Sitara AM62x processors, enabling developers to reduce time to market and integrate security from day one when building, deploying and maintaining IoT and Edge devices.
The AM62x processor family is a cost-effective Cortex-A53-based edge AI and full-HD dual display microprocessor designed for human machine interface (HMI) and edge-based design. Foundries.io support enables developers to easily port applications developed on other FoundriesFactory supported processor platforms.
“Foundries.io offers a platform that delivers DevOps capabilities to embedded developers and simplifies the building and deployment of secured edge devices and fleets,” said Artem Aginskiy, General Manager of Sitara Processors, Texas Instruments. “This addition to the AM62x processor family’s ecosystem helps customers to accelerate product development, easily secure their production devices, and manage and maintain them through the product lifetime.”
The growth in IoT and Edge requires a new way of building and maintaining Linux-based devices, one in which security and resource efficiency are paramount. FoundriesFactory addresses these challenges with a cloud platform designed to both simplify and reduce the cost of developing, deploying and maintaining secure IoT and Edge Linux-based devices. It accelerates product firmware, operating system and applications development, shortens time to market and provides the ability to monitor and update devices and fleets, keeping them secure over their product lifetime.
“We are excited by the launch of this powerful and cost-effective SoC family from TI,” said George Grey, CEO and co-founder at Foundries.io. “We are pleased to add support for the AM62X family to our existing support for TI SoCs. As FoundriesFactory reaches new product developers across the IoT and Edge ecosystem, we accelerate development innovation and time to market for all of our global partners and customers.”
The AM62x support in FoundriesFactory adds to existing support for the TI Beaglebone and AM64x SoC families.
