Additionally, the kit includes a dual camera vision board that can support single or dual IAS camera modules based on On Semiconductor’s image sensors.

The single board computer fits in a compact external dimension of 146 mm x 80 mm and is suitable for operations between -40° C and 85° C.

The kit enables advanced AI and machine learning applications to run faster on the edge through the power efficient neural processing unit (NPU) and enables more autonomous systems where cloud connectivity is not required or can supplement the system’s capabilities with higher-level functions.
