SMART Wireless Computing provides an Android 10 BSP pre-loaded with Hexagon, SNPE, and OpenCV SDKs. Some specific use cases include enterprise video conferencing solutions, medical portable ultrasound machines, and retails can develop camera systems for self-checkout and to better understand their customers.
The company also provides the ACC1C20 carrier board for testing, prototyping, and development, with the features and interfaces of the ports exposes through standard connectors and headers.
We’ve written several articles about Inforce Computing‘s products over the years, and but never about “SMART Wireless Computing” company. That is because Inforce Computing was acquired by SGH (Smart Global Holdings) about two years ago, and they changed the name of the company.
More details about Inforce 68a1 system-on-module can be found on the product page and the press release.
