Rockchip RV1109 SBC’s provide access control solutions with optional 4G LTE connectivity

We’ve been writing about Rockchip RV1109 and RV1126 AI camera SoC’s in recent days, as well as evaluation boards and modules, plus some complete solutions such as Firefly dual-lens AI camera modules.

Shenzhen-based JWIPC, a company specifically in embedded PCs and motherboards, has designed three SBC’s powered by Rockchip RV1109 processor especially designed for access control, leverage the face detection capabilities of the Rockchip processor.

The three access control boards are:

  • R19S – Standard 100x72mm Pico-ITX board with industrial grade materials, support for wide temperature, hardware watchdog, and “rich peripheral interface”.
  • R19F- Same as R19S, but with a mini PCIe socket for a 4G LTE module, plus a SIM card slot
  • R19N – Similar to R19S with a narrower 100x60mm design

JWIPC R19 boards share most of the same hardware key features and specifications:

  • SoC – Rockchip RV1109 dual-core Arm Cortex-A7 @ 1.5 GHz, plus RISC-V MCU @ 400 MHz, 2D graphics engine, 1.2 TOPS NPU, 5MP H.264 and H.265 hardware video decoder and encoder
  • System Memory – 1 or 2GB DDR4 RAM
  • Storage – 4, 8 or 16 GB eMMC 4.51 flash
  • Video Output – 40-pin MIPI DSI FPC connector
  • Camera Input – 31-pin MIPI CSI FPC connector
  • Audio – Mic in and speaker headers
  • Connectivity – 10/100M Ethernet (CON2 connector), 2.4 GHz WiFi 4 via RTL8189FTV module; R19F only: optional 4G LTE  via mPCIe socket and SIM card slot
  • Expansion interfaces – 4x USB headers, 2x COM headers (1x RS232, 1x RS485) , GPIO headers, etc…
  • Misc – Recovery button, hardware-level watchdog
  • Power Supply – 12V via 4-pin 1.25mm pitch wafer connector
  • Dimensions –  R19S/R19F – 100×72 mm; R19N: 100×60 mm
  • Temperature Range – Operating: -20 to +70°C; storage: -40 to +80°C
  • Humidity – 10% to 95% non-condensing

While all three single board computers are said to be for access control, the company does not provide much information about software support, except it’s running Linux. But we should expect the boards to use the same RKNN toolkit and resources as other RV1109 or RV1126 SBC’s and modules we previously covered.

There’s no public information regarding pricing and availability, although the JWIPC first introduced the boards around two months ago. Additional details may be found on the products page.

itayga.com has a very similar board. RV1109 $44, RV1126 $47

is there a reason al these camera soc’s still use old A7 designs?

My speculation would be that the A7 is well matched to the older fabs being used to make these low cost chips.

The RK3399PRO has similar video and AI capabilities with Cortex-A72. But it is also 7X the price.

That would make sense if it turns out to be a 28nm (or older) in the end, but the only references for the RV1109 process point to a SMIC 14nm FinFET production that is extremely unusual for a Cortex-A7.

Another possibility is that they designed it to be a drop-in replacement and shrink for 28nm RV1108, with minimal changes aside from adding the NPU and other improvements.
