SolidRun launches Hailo-15 SOM with up to 20 TOPS AI vision processor

In March last year, we saw Hailo introduce their quad-core Cortex-A53-based Hailo-15 AI Vision processor. The processor features an advanced computer vision engine and can deliver up to 20 TOPS of processing power. However, after that initial release, we didn’t find it in any commercial products with the SoC.

But in a recent development, SolidRun has released a SOM that not only features the Hailo-15 SoC but also integrates up to 8GB LPDDR4 RAM and 256GB eMMC storage along with dual camera support with H.265/4 Video Encoder. This is not the first SOM that SolidRun has released. Previously, we wrote about the SolidRun RZ/G2LC SOM, and before that, SolidRun launched the LX2-Lite SOM along with the ClearFog LX2-Lite dev board. Last month, they released their first COM Express module based on the Ryzen V3000 Series APU.

SolidRun has launched a SOM featuring the Hailo-15 AI Vision Processor, with up to 20 TOPS for edge AI and on-device machine learning tasks.

The company has confirmed that there will be two variants of the Hailo-15 SOM: the Hailo-15M and the Hailo-15H. The Hailo-15M will offer 11 TOPS of computing power, whereas the Hailo-15H features the top-end version with 20 TOPS. The module also has a 12-megapixel image signal processor (ISP) with a hardware H.264/H.265 encoder and HDR support. With the help of the Sony IMX334 and IMX678 image sensors, this module can capture up to 4k30 footage.

In terms of OS support, the system boasts broad Linux-based software support, including a dataflow compiler and a library of deep learning and application examples. It supports standard machine learning frameworks such as Keras, TensorFlow, PyTorch, and ONNX, alongside a Yocto-based Linux distribution. more details can be found on SolidRun’s GitHub.

The Hailo-15H SOM, which includes 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage, is priced starting at $149. As of this writing, the company has also confirmed working on the HummingBoard IIoT carrier board with an IMX334-based camera module. Additional details can be found on the SolidRun official website, and the company plans to showcase the devices at the Embedded World 2024 event in Nuremberg, Germany.
