Low-Power NXP machine learning platform from IBASE
IBASE Technology, a global specialist provider of industrial and embedded computing solutions, has expanded its edge computer line-up by adding the rugged ISR215 that is powered by an NXP i.MX 8M Plus applications processor built using 14nm LPC FinFET process technology and reliably operates over a temperature range of -10°C ~ 60°C across a variety of applications.
The processor is backed by NXP’s longevity program, ensuring 15-plus years of supply from product launch.
The ISR215 provides high-performance and low-power capabilities for machine learning and vision applications, thanks to the powerful 1.6GHz Quad ARM Cortex-A53 processor with a Neural Processing Unit (NPU) operating at up to 2.3 TOPS that boosts complex ML algorithm and reduces power.
Developers can offload ML inferencing tasks to the NPU while tapping the power of the ARM Cortex core, DSP and GPU to handle other application programs. The ISR215 boasts dual image signal processor (ISP) that features HDR, fisheye correction and two HD MPI-CSI interfaces for up to 12-megapixel (MP) resolution cameras, an 800 MHz Tensilica HiFi4 DSP for audio/voice processing, and a high-precision GPU with 1080p and H.265/H.264 compression standards.
The ISR215 comes with 3GB of integrated LPDDR4 memory with ECC function, 16GB eMMC (up to 128GB), and Gigabit Ethernet with time-sensitive networking (TSN) that enables deterministic real-time communication on standard Ethernet. Flexible I/O configurations include USB, HDMI and M.2 B-Key (3052) to accommodate expansion boards and modules with 5G, NFC and QR code functionalities. Standard BSP support for Yocto and Android and design-in services are provided to help customers rapidly develop and deploy their innovations.
