The piA-AM5728 is an industrial computer based on the ARM® Cortex ™ -A15 architecture in a top-hat rail housing.
As a power-saving and powerful Sitara computer, the piA-AM5728 offers the highest future security. It is suitable for ideal stationary and mobile control and communication tasks. If there is not enough space for a PC or ATOM board, the piA-AM5728 can be used perfectly due to its small size.
In addition to Ethernet, WLAN and USB, the system enables data exchange via CAN / CANOpen and wirelessly via GPRS / UMTS. The CAN-based DIN rail bus (CH20M DIN rail bus), which replaces the complex individual wiring with an uninterruptible and flexible system solution, can serve the communication of several modules. Common industrial peripherals can be connected via RS232 and RS485 ports.
Linux offers the system universal uses and guarantees sustainability. An alternative are any Linux distributions with ARMv7 support (e.g. Debian, Poky) that can be used with the preconfigured Ångström base system.
A cross-compiler SDK (C / C ++, QT, various libraries) can help you develop your own applications.
The architectural proximity to the popular beagle boards allows access to countless code examples and documentation from a large developer community. The configuration and visualization of the automation projects can be easily implemented with the available, web-based software. The users get a deep overview of the systems.
Between the real-time control and the cloud, the piA-AM5728 module serves as the edge gateway. Advantages are already visible at plant level due to edge / fog computing. From real-time control to communication and remote maintenance, the module serves all of this as a platform consisting of hardware, software and additional features. It forms a technical basis for many applications.
