Joining the previously announced ULX4M dev board is another dev kit in the form of the V853. Offering an open source dev kit with an Arm Cortex-A7 core, a RISC-V E907 core, a 1-TOPS NPU, a 7-inch LCD screen, two cameras, and everything else your AI-vision applications might require says its developers.
Soon to be available from the Crowd Supply website the hardware feature an Allwinner’s powerful V853 SoC, which includes a 1-GHz Arm Cortex-A7 core, a 600-MHz RISC-V E907 core, and a 1-TOPS NPU. It does so by integrating several additional modules that, together, provide 512 MB of DDR3 memory, 8 GB of eMMC storage, SD-card support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Ethernet, SD-card support, USB connectivity, dual microphones, a dual-camera interface, IT-CUT, a screen interface, a battery interface, an RTC battery, buttons, power management, a speaker, GPS support, a G-SENSOR interface, JTAG, I²S, and UART, among other features.
