ROVY-4VM Highlights

Performance

Designed for real-time processing in embedded vision applications, the TDA4VM SoC integrates dual ARMv8 Cortex A72, 6 1.0 GHz ARM Cortex R5F, 3 floating point DSPs, and several accelerators for vision processing.

Functional Safety

Drawing from a heritage in automotive, the ROVY-4VM is Functional Safety Capable, with integrated power monitoring and an isolated dual Cortex R5F MCU subsystem operating in lockstep for safety processing.

Interfaces

With up to 9-ports of Gigabit Ethernet, as many as 4 PCI Express busses, and up to 10 CAN-FD ports, as well as USB3.0, UARTs, SPI, I2C, the ROVY-4VM serves as the network hub for mobile autonomous machines.

Rugged and Reliable

Our System-on-Modules are available in industrial grade configurations to withstand the worst environmental challenges your embedded product might face.

Camera Integration

Seamlessly integrate high resolution and low-latency cameras into your application with embedded vision camera modules and complete off-the-shelf solutions available from TechNexion.

Machine Learning / AI

The integrated DSP and Matrix Multiply Accelerator (MMA) greatly accelerates deep learning inference processing up to 8 TOPS.

Software Platform

As a true opensource software advocate, are supported with a source code Linux BSP pre-integrated with ROS2.

Scalability

Designed with the future in mind. A single carrier board can host the TDA4VM to far more powerful embedded vision SOCs in the near future.
