Texas Instruments’ AM571x Sitara Processors, Now at Mouser, Meet High-Performance Industrial Display Requirements

These ARM® Cortex®-based devices achieve high levels of processing and are designed to meet the intense processing needs of modern embedded applications, including industrial communications, human-machine interface (HMI), and automation and control.

July 20, 2017 - Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry's leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the AM571x Sitara applications processors from Texas Instruments (TI). These ARM® Cortex®-based devices achieve high levels of processing and are designed to meet the intense processing needs of modern embedded applications, including industrial communications, human-machine interface (HMI), and automation and control.


TI's AM571x Sitara processors, available from Mouser Electronics, combine programmable video processing with a highly integrated peripheral set. Programmability is provided by a single-core ARM Cortex-A15 reduced instruction set computer (RISC) CPU with Neon extensions and a TI C66x floating-point DSP core. The ARM processor allows developers to keep control functions separate from vision algorithms programmed on the DSP and co-processors, which results in a reduction of system software complexity.

The processors offer up to 512 Kbytes of level 3 (L3) RAM plus L3 and L4 interconnects, as well as a DDR3/DDR3L memory interface module that supports up to DDR-1333 (667 MHz) memory with up to 2 Gbytes across a single chip select function. A robust display subsystem supports 1080p HD video plus 2D and 3D graphics. Other features include two dual-core programmable real-time units, a general purpose memory controller, enhanced direct memory access (DMA) control, sixteen 32-bit general-purpose timers, and a 32-bit watchdog timer.

The AEC-Q100-qualified processors are supported by four development tools, also available from Mouser. The TMDSEVM572x evaluation module features a 7-inch touch screen and works in conjunction with the TMDSCM572x camera evaluation module to accelerate development of HMI and other applications. The TMDXIDK57x-LCD industrial development kit includes a 10.1-inch LCD display that supports 10-point capacitive touch for display and touch applications. The TMDXIDK5718 industrial development kit ships with a camera daughter card and offers simultaneous six-port Ethernet plus integrated industrial Ethernet and fieldbus protocols.

Bitflow is the leader in CoaXPress

Bitflow is the leader in CoaXPress

With the introduction of its Cyton and Karbon CXP frame grabbers, BitFlow has established itself as the leader in CoaXPress (CXP), a simple, yet powerful, standard for moving high speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. With CXP, video is captured at speeds of up to 6.25 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). Simultaneously, control commands and triggers can be sent to the camera 20 Mb/S (with a trigger accuracy of +/- 2 nanoseconds). Up to 13 W of power can also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of industry standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable. Multiple CXP links can be aggregated to support higher data rates (e.g. four links provide 25 Gb/S of data). BitFlow CXP frame grabbers open the door to applications where cable cost, routing requirements and long distances have prevented the move to high resolution, high speed digital cameras. In many cases, existing coaxial infrastructure can be repurposed for CXP with very low installation costs.
