Texas Instruments has announced a new family of Sitara AMIC SoCs, making it easy to attain cost-optimised industrial Ethernet communication. The AMIC110 SoC is a multiprotocol industrial communication processor that offers a read-to-use solution supporting over 10 Industrial Ethernet and fieldbus communication standards.
The device leverages TI’s unified software platform, Processor SDK, and the programmability of TI’s industrial communications subsystem (PRU-ICSS) for industrial communication support in factory automation and control applications.

The new SoC enables developers to convert existing non-networked designs like motor drives to networked systems by adding industrial Ethernet. While application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) only support a single industrial Ethernet standard, AMIC110 SoC’s programmable real-time unit supports a wide variety of protocols like EtherCAT, Profinet, Ethernet/IP, PROFIBUS master and slave, POWERLINK, SERCOS III, CANopen, and so on.
Developed for industrial designers, the devices are built on industry-proven Sitara processor platform featuring flexible peripherals, industrial temperature ranges and unified software support. The Soc can serve as a companion communications device to a microcontroller such as TI’s C2000 MCU for connected drive applications.
Pricing & Availability
The AMIC110 SoC can be availed through the TI store and authorized distributors at USD 6 in 1,000-unit quantities.
