Suitable for edge computing and AI, the board comes with a host of computing characteristics, which allows high flexibility to Linux users
BeagleBoard in collaboration with Seeed has announced that it has brought in Star Five, a RISC-V solutions provider for the development of the BeagleV (pronounced Beagle five) Single Board Computer, providing developers with more freedom and power to innovate and design.
It features 8GB RAM with powerful AI performance (3.5T NVDLA, 1T NNE), built-in ISP/NNE, PCle 3.0,1 Gigabit ethernet and a dual-core 64-bit RISC-V CPU with 8GB of LPDDR memory. It also has a dedicated hardware encoder/decoder supporting H.264 4k@60fps, making it a perfect edge computing device with powerful AI capability.
Supported by Linux, BeagleV allows high flexibility to Linux users from silicon to hardware. BeagleV is built around RISC-V U74 Dual-core with 2MB L2 cache @ 1.0GHz. The processor offers highly integrated and powerful AI features including:
• Vision DSP Tensilica-VP6 for computing vision
• NVDLA Engine 1 core (configuration 2048 MACs@800MHz )
• Neural Network Engine (1024MACs@500MHz)
Thanks to its open-source structure, the thriving open-source community will find the BeagleV to be greatly effective while building projects with a higher performance development board.
BeagleV will be available for early access in March with larger availability in September.
