SMART Embedded Computing and SMART Wireless Computing are now Penguin Edge, a Product Line of Penguin Solutions

Be the First to the Future. Let Penguin Point the Way.

Penguin Edge 6303 and 6403

Highly integrated compact SoMs to drive power efficient edge compute applications such as rugged smart cameras

Designed to target applications such as Home IP cameras, body cams and dash cams

Dual 14-bit ISPs to support dual sensors and dual concurrent display Outputs

Penguin Edge computing introduces compact modules in under 1600 mm sq size, based on Qualcomm’s QCS410 and QCS610 custom Kryo™ cores in LGA packages for rugged smart cameras. With calibrated WLAN signal strength, onboard GNSS and audio codec, this production-ready module will be a perfect fit for smart camera use-cases that necessitate low vertical product profiles.

QCS SoMs based reference design

Penguin Edge has created a reference carrier that is compatible for both SoMs and brings out all native interfaces of the QCS410 and QCS610 processors together with some value-add like an HDMI 2.0 interface. The carrier integrates LTE Cat 4 module that is pre-certified for the North America and Canada regions. The reference design with the LGA SoM soldered helps create and optimize your products with the shortest turnaround time. An Off-the-shelf camera module accessory is available that works out of the box with this platform.
