SolidRun Companions with Hailo for a 20 TOPS Hailo-15H-Powered Edge AI System-on-Module

Embedded {hardware} specialist SolidRun has introduced the discharge of a system-on-module (SOM) constructed across the Hailo-15 neural processing unit (NPU) — bringing as much as 20 tera-operations per second (TOPS) to bear on edge synthetic intelligence (edge AI) and on-device machine studying workloads.

“Our imaginative and prescient at SolidRun has all the time been to simplify the complicated world of embedded methods and empower engineers to innovate with out constraints,” claims Atai Ziv, PhD, SolidRun’s chief govt officer. “Collaborating with Hailo to develop the Hailo-15H SOM, we have launched an built-in answer that achieves simply that. This market-ready answer seamlessly combines cutting-edge AI inferencing capabilities with ease of integration, finally lowering engineering time and prices. Most significantly, it allows builders and engineers to dedicate their energies completely to realizing their product imaginative and prescient.”

“SolidRun’s SOM based mostly on our Hailo-15H SOC represents a big milestone for in-camera edge AI processing and offers engineers with a compact answer that delivers unparalleled efficiency and power effectivity for a variety of AI imaginative and prescient functions,” provides Hailo’s Yaron Ofer. “Working with SolidRun, we’re capable of empower prospects to shortly unlock the total potential of AI on the edge, and drive innovation throughout numerous industries.”

Hailo unveiled the Hailo-15 again in March final 12 months, promising as much as 20 tera-operations per second (TOPS) of compute, part-dependent, for on-device machine studying and edge synthetic intelligence (edge AI) workloads — delivering the flexibility, in keeping with the corporate’s personal testing, to run the ResNet-50 mannequin on-device at 700 frames per second. SolidRun’s final Hailo-equipped system, in the meantime, was the Hummingboard 8P Edge AI combining an NXP i.MX 8M Plus with the older Hailo-8.

SolidRun has confirmed core variants of the Hailo-15 SOM: the Hailo-15M SOM makes use of a lower-end model of the Hailo-15 chip providing 11 TOPS of compute, whereas the Hailo-15H SOM options the top-end 20 TOPS model. Each fashions embrace a quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 utility processor operating at 1.3GHz, as much as 8GB of LPDDR4 reminiscence, and eMMC storage from 8GB to 256GB alongside a 32Mb QSPI flash module. For community connectivity there’s an on-board dual-band 802.11ac and Bluetooth 5.0 radio alongside gigabit Ethernet, with USB 3.1 for exterior {hardware}.

The modules embrace a imaginative and prescient subsystem with a dual-camera 12 megapixel picture sign processor (ISP) with {hardware} H.264/H.265 encoder supporting high-dynamic vary (HDR) video and as much as 4k30 footage, two MIPI Digital camera Serial Interface (CSI) four-lane ports, and compatibility with the Sony IMX334 and IMX678 picture sensors. There is a four-name MIPI Show Serial Interface (DSI) for video output, Safe Digital Enter/Output (SDIO) assist, audio capabilities, and SPI, I2C, I2S, and UART buses alongside general-purpose enter/output (GPIO) pins introduced out to 3 Hirose DF40 connectors on the board’s underside.

Initially, the Hailo-15 SOMs are solely out there to order as naked modules; the corporate has confirmed plans to launch a Hummingboard IIoT service that includes the modules and bringing out all main options. Pricing for the service bundles and Hailo-15M SOM has but to be confirmed, with orders now open for the Hailo-15H SOM beginning at $149 with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage.

Extra data is offered on the SolidRun web site, whereas the corporate will probably be demonstrating the gadgets at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany April Ninth-Eleventh, Corridor 1 Sales space #126, and at ISC West in Las Vegas, April Tenth-Twelfth, Sales space #31065.
