The AMIC110 SoC is a multi-protocol industrial communication processor supporting nearly all Industrial Ethernet variants ranging from Profinet via Ethercat and Sercos III to Powerlink. The 300-MHz chip comes with several serial interfaces including CAN, Profibus, UART, and USB. This makes the product suitable for gateway implementations.

Built on the Cortex-A8-based Sitara processor platform that features flexible peripherals, industrial temperature ranges and unified software support, the AMIC110 SoC was developed for industrial designers. It can serve as a companion communication processor to a micro-controller such as TI's C2000. In addition to the AMIC110, the provided reference design showcases the DP83822 PHY component that is suited for Industrial Ethernet applications.
