Industrial-Grade Computer-on-Modules Support High-Performance AI-Edge Applications
congatec launched its latest conga-STDA4 SMARC Module 2.1 industrial-grade computer-on-modules, based on Texas Instruments' Jacinto 7 TDA4x or DRA8x processors. Well-suited for high-performance AI edge applications, it offers an ultra-low power envelope featuring dual Arm Cortex-A72 processors, powerful AI accelerators, and 3D graphics. Consuming only 5 to 10 W, the modules target industrial systems that require advanced functionality like 2D/3D camera-, radar-, and LiDAR-based near-field analytics, as well as vision-focused industrial automation or medical solutions.
The SMARC modules come with two MIPI CSI camera inputs, and the conga-STDA4 adds an Image Signal Processor, vision accelerators, and pre-trained AI models from the TI Model Zoo, plus there's a Robotic SDK for enhanced functionality. The DRA8x variants come without vision processing accelerators for a cost-efficient option. Both high-throughput module variants operate over a temperature range from -40 to +85°C.
Both offer time-sensitive networking and cybersecurity measures, help streamline the design process, and ensure high design security and low non-recurring engineering costs. Features include 2x MIPI-CSI 4-lanes and integrated image signal processor for MIPI-CSI cameras, enabling high-quality camera, LiDAR, or radar data capture and processing. The new modules also leverage congatec’s high-performance SMARC 2.1 Module ecosystem.
