Connectivity can add great value to many embedded applications. An IoT Gateway is one of the easier ways to connect devices to the cloud without bearing the cost of a full Ethernet or Wi-Fi® interface with an accompanying protocol stack. However, there is always a possibility that the device could be hacked when an electronic device is connected to the cloud, which could result in serious consequences like data and identity theft. Hence, a security-focused approach should be taken when building an IoT Gateway to protect users’ privacy and block any malicious activity.
The Programmable Real-Time Unit (PRU) is a small processor that is tightly integrated with an IO subsystem, offering low-latency control of IO pins on TI’s SoC devices including the AM335x, AM437x, and AM57x Sitara Processors. The PRU is customer-programmable and can be used to implement simple and flexible control functions, peripherals, and state machines that directly access IO pins of the device, as well as can communicate with the application cores. This curriculum provides an in-depth look at the PRU, including hardware, firmware, application design, and drivers.
