conga-SMX95 NXP i.MX9596 SoM M.2 1216 WiFi 6 module

We had already written about NXP i.MX 95 SMARC 2.1 system-on-modules from ADLINK, iWave Systems, Avnet, and Advantech, but congatec has now launched its own with the conga-SMX95 featuring the NXP i.MX 9596 hexa-core Arm Cortex-A55 AI processor and up to 16GB LPDDR5 memory. The conga-SMX95 also comes with up to 256GB flash, is available on both commercial and industrial temperature grade variants, and exposes most of the same interfaces as competing products. What might be different is that the conga-SMX95 is offered with an optional M.2 1216 WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.3 wireless module. We’ve seen M.2 1216 wireless modules before, and they don’t use any M.2 socket but are LGA packages that need to be soldered to the target board/module. conga-SMX95 specifications: SoC – NXP i.MX 9596 CPU Up to 6x Arm Cortex-A55 application cores clocked at 1.8 GHz (industrial) or 2.0 GHz (commercial) with 32K I-cache and […]

Mixtile Edge AI boxes work with ONVIF cameras to deploy video analytics solutions (Sponsored)

Mixile Ege AI Box

Mixtile Edge AI solution supports ONVIF cameras and leverages object detection, object classification, real-time analysis, and intelligent monitoring to create IoT video analytics applications across the security, transportation, logistics, retail, industry, and agriculture sectors. The hardware is based on the time-tested Mixtile Edge 2 Kit IoT gateway powered by a Rockchip RK3568 SoC with a 1 TOPS NPU and 1080p60 VPU, or Mixtile Blade 3 SBC featuring the more powerful Rockchip RK3588 octa-core SoC with a 6 TOPS AI accelerator and an 8Kp60 VPU. The former can analyze up to 10 streams in real-time, and the latter up to a whopping 40 streams. So the novelty here is on the software side that has been developed by Mixtile and works the following way: The ONVIF cameras transmit video streams to a Mixtile Edge AI Box over the network. The Edge AI Box then runs pre-trained AI models to analyze the […]

Amlogic S905X5M vs S905X4 – Features and benchmarks comparison

Amlogic S905X5M vs S905X4

Amlogic S905X5M is an update to the Amlogic S905X4 quad-core Cortex-A55 SoC with a higher 2.5 GHz CPU clock and a new generation Arm G310 CPU that delivers up to close to three times the performance of the Mali-G31 MP2 GPU for more advanced and smoother HDR user interfaces. The S905X5M and S905X4 share the same video decoding capabilities, notably AV1 and H265 up to 4Kp75, but the new S905X5M drops support for H.265 1080p60 video encoding, only keeping H.264 1080p30. One of the new features is the inclusion of an NPU designed specifically for Super Resolution enabling video upscaling with better image quality. You’ll find the differences between the Amlogic S905X5M and S905X5 processors in the comparison table below. The Amlogic S905X5M adds some HDMI 2.1 features that deserve an explanation: QMS (Quick Media Switching) – A source device can instantly switch its content’s resolution or frame rate without […]
