Horizon Robotics BOOTPRINT X2 is an AIoT / AI computing development kit providing a complete reference solution from device to cloud integration.
The board is powered by the company’s Sunrise 2.0 AI edge processor based on the second-generation BPU (“Brain Processing Unit”) architecture that delivers up to 4 TOPS at low power consumption and is said to follow 96Boards specification, although from the photo below they’ve taken some liberties with the option (e.g. added a Gigabit Ethernet port).
The board has now launched yet, and we have limited information about BOOTPRINT X2 kit specifications:
- SoC – Horizon Sunrise 2.0 AI edge processor with 4 TOPS equivalent AI processing power (no mention of architecture)
- System Memory – 1GB LPDDR4 RAM
- Storage – 4GB eMMC flash, MicroSD card socket
- Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet
- Camera I/F – Dual 1080p camera inputs for symmetric binocular camera, combination of infrared and visible light.
- Audio – Support for 6-array microphones
- USB – 1x MicroUSB port
- Expansion – 96Boards LS (Low Speed) and HS (High-Speed) connectors should be on the other side of the board too.
- Power Supply – 8-18V via power barrel jack
- Dimensions – 85 x 55mm (96Boards CE compliant)
There’s not much information about the processor itself, as the processor page on Horizon Robotics website only mentions a Sunrise processor that delivers 1.0 TOPS, so I suppose it’s Sunrise 1.0 AI processor.
There will be at least 3 variants of BOOTPRINT X2 kit with the board alone, the board plus cameras, and the board plus cameras and a microphone array.
There’s not a lot of extra information, but we do know Horizon Robotics will also be launching an eco-partnership program around the platform with a developer training program, an online community and various business collaboration opportunities.
I could not find any product page for the board just, so at this time, all available information can be found on Linaro’s announcement post.
