Intel RealSense Robotic Development Kit Features Atom x5 UP Board, Realsense R200 Depth Camera

Orange Pi Development Boards

An Intel Developer Forum is currently taking place in Shenzhen, China, which may explains why we have several Intel products announcements targeting developers such as the launch of Quark D2000 development board. Another product for makers and developers is Intel RealSense Robotic Development Kit combining Raspberry Pi like UP Board powered by Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor with Intel RealSense camera (R200) in order to bring 3D / depth vision to robots.

UP Board specifications have changed a little as the processor is now Z8350 instead of Z8300, and they now have a version with 4GB RAM used in the kit:

  • SoC – Intel Atom x5-Z8350 “Cherry Trail” quad core processor @ 1.44 GHz (Burst frequency: 1.92 GHz) with Intel Gen8 HD graphics
  • System Memory –  4GB DDR3L-1600
  • Storage – 32 GB eMMC flash
  • Video Output / Display – HDMI 1.4b, MIPI DSI/eDP interface
  • Audio I/O – HDMI, I2S
  • Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet
  • USB – 4x USB 2.0 host ports, 2x USB 2.0 pin header, 1x micro USB 3.0 port
  • Camera – MIPI CSI up to 4MP
  • Expansion – 40-pin Raspberry Pi compatible header
  • Misc – Power button, RTC
  • Power Supply – 5V/3A via 5.5/2.1mm jack
  • Dimensions – 85.60 x 56.50 mm

The board will ships with Ubuntu Linux, but other operating systems such as Windows 10 and other Linux distributors are also supported. One of the USB 3.0 port is used to interface with R200 3D depth camera with the following features:

  • Depth Range – Up to 3-4 meters indoors, longer range outdoors
  • Depth / Infrared: 640 x480 resolution at 60 FPS
  • RGB: 1080p at 30 FPS
  • USB 3.0 port (required on host)
  • Dimensions – 130 mm x 20 mm x 7 mm

I could not find much information about the software side, but I assume this is likely supported by RealSense SDK.

The development kit is up for pre-order for $249.99 for resident of the United States, Canada, China, EU, and Japan only, and is expected to ship in June 2016. More details are available in the devkit page.

Thanks to Roi for the tip.

If it’s really the up-board being shipped, then it is overpriced…
the same board model costs 129$ http://up-shop.org/up-boards/43-up-board-4b-32-gb-emmc-memory.html
the camera costs 99$ http://click.intel.com/intel-realsense-developer-kit-r200.html

Might be worth a comparison with Orbbec Persee, Kinnect & similar alternatives?

how can x5-Z8350 address 4 GB RAM, with only available one memory channel limited at 2 GB ?
Other space might be for peripherals by BIOS Uefi ?
