Tiny rugged Linux COM jumps on TI Sitara AM57x

Filed under
Linux

Phytec’s 55 x 45mm, “PhyCore-AM57x SOM” supports the TI Sitara AM57x SoC, and offers a Linux BSP, -40 to 85°C operation, and an optional carrier board.

The PhyCore-AM57x SOM is the second computer-on-module we’ve seen after the CompuLab CL-SOM-AM57x to tap TI’s newly announced Sitara AM57x SoC. The AM57x also appears on the BeagleBoard-X15 single-board computer.

Germany-based Phytec is targeting the PhyCore-AM57x SOM at industrial human machine interface (HMI), factory automation, machine vision, building automation, networking, test and measurement, and medical imaging applications. The company previously employed a Texas Instruments Sitara SoC — the Cortex-A8 based Sitara AM335x — in its PhyCore-AM335x COM and PhyBoard SBC.

  • Should You Run Arch Linux on Your Servers?

    I've decided to run Arch Linux for all my side projects (old and new). Here's my experiences and advice. TL;DR: There are some real advantages: package management, minimalism, and pay-as-you-go tech debt plans, among other things. If you're trying to use Arch Linux in your company's infrastructure, make sure you have a good image-building (and testing) process before proceeding

  • If Linux Ricing Is The Goal, Efficiency May Not Be Important

    There's a lot of Linux software out their that doesn't seem like it has much of a use but if you reframe how you look at the software you start to realize that maybe that's not a bad thing. If your intention is linux ricing maybe it's not really an issue that's it's not the most productive way to do a task and I feel like it's important for me to cover that sort of content on that channel.
