Vecow unveils MediaTek Genio 350, Genio 500, and Genio 1200 system-on-modules and development kits

Vecow has announced a series of new system-on-modules and development kits based on Mediatek Genio 350, Genio 500, or Genio 1200 processors for AIoT applications ranging from smart security, smart retail, and traffic vision to digital signage.

This follows last week’s news about ADLINK LEC-MTK-I12000 SMARC module and devkit powered by MediaTek Genio 1200 Cortex-A78/A55 AIoT processor, but Vecow also offers solutions based on the entry-level Genio 350 quad-core Cortex-A53 processor, and the mid-range Genio 500 octa-core Cortex-A73/A53 processor.

Vecoew provides support for Android 10 and Yocto 2.6 Linux for the module. While the CPU and GPU performance will be much greater than for the Genio 350 module, and memory capacity is double, the ESOM-MT-500 is actually a simpler module without WiFi or audio codec on the module, since there are moved to the carrier board, and fewer interfaces.
ESOM-MT-500-CB

The ESOM-MT-500-EV evaluation kit features a carrier board with two Fast Ethernet and USB ports made available through a USB hub, a WiFi and Bluetooth module, an audio codec, HDMI and MIPI DSI display interfaces, and more. The kit comes with a power supply, a thermal solution, and necessary cables, and there’s also a “Plus” version of the kit that adds a 5 MP camera and a 10.1-inch touchscreen display.

Software support includes a more recent Android 11 OS, as well as Linux through Yocto 3.1 build system. The MediaTek Genio 1200 is a much more capable and I/Os rich SoC so it’s a step up from the other modules in virtually all aspects. The audio codec is back on the module instead of being on the carrier board, and the Genio 1200 is the only Genio processor so far to have a native (Gigabit) Ethernet interface.

ESOM-MT-1200-CBThe ESOM-MT-1200-CB 5.25-inch carrier board has a lot to offer with HDMI, DisplayPort, LVDS, and MIPI DSI display interfaces, three 4-lane MIPI CSI camera interfaaces, two Gigabit Ethernet ports including one through Microchip LAN7800 USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet bridge, two USB 3.0 port, two RS232 COM ports, one RS232/RS422/R485 interface, M.2 and mPCIe sockets for expansion, 2x audio jack for Mic-in and Line-Out, and more.
