Penguin Edge 6560

A complete 4k encode/decode SBC with stereoscopic depth sensing and deep learning capabilities for IoT edge devices.

Penguin Edge 6560, is a fully featured production ready Pico-ITX single board system (SBC) featuring the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 660 processor.

The Penguin Edge 6560 SBC combines the heterogeneous compute capabilities of the Snapdragon™ 660 processor with 2×2 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.x, a full featured USB-C interface with UltraHD display capability, an Integrated battery charging circuitry with battery header, an on-board RTC and support for up to 8GB of LPPDR4 and 256GB of flash storage provided through eMCP (8-bit eMMC 5.1 compliant) or uMCP (1 ×lane UFS 2.1, Gear 3 compliant) multichip package to make it a complete 4K encode/decode system.

Penguin Edge software BSPs enable simultaneous dual streaming capabilities using which depth perception use-cases like proximity detection, semantic segmentation, facial recognition and object tracking can be enabled with ease which make it ideal for edge analytics and connected camera use-cases.
