High performing processors support HLOS
The Texas Instruments AM437x high-performance processors are based on the ARM Cortex-A9 core. The processors are enhanced with 3D graphics acceleration for rich graphical user interfaces, as well as a coprocessor for deterministic, real-time processing including industrial communication protocols, such as EtherCAT, PROFIBUS, EnDat, and others.
The devices support high-level operating systems (HLOS). Linux is available free of charge from TI. Other HLOSs are available from TI’s Design Network and ecosystem partners.
These devices offer an upgrade to systems based on lower performance ARM cores and provide updated peripherals, including memory options such as QSPI-NOR and LPDDR2.
