    Texas Instruments Sitara AM263x microcontroller family

    The AM263x Sitara Microcontrollers are built to meet the complex real-time processing needs of next generation industrial and automotive embedded products. The AM263x MCU family consists of multiple pin-to-pin compatible devices with up to four 400 MHz Arm Cortex-R5F cores. As an option, the ArmR5F subsystem can be programmed to run in lockstep or dual-core mode for a multiple functional safety configurations.

    The industrial communications subsystem enables integrated industrial Ethernet communication protocols such as PROFINET, TSN, Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT, standard Ethernet connectivity, and even custom I/O interfaces. Advanced analog sensing and digital actuation modules enable advanced motor control and digital power applications. See here for more information about the Sitara AM263x family.
