Canaan K510 CRB RISC-V AI development kit ships with dual-camera module and LCD display

Last summer time, Canaan launched the Kendryte K510 tri-core RISC-V AI processor, now also called Canaan K510, as an up to date model of the Kendryte K210 with a a lot larger 3 TOPS of efficiency, however on the time, there have been no development board and SDK.
But I’ve now simply been knowledgeable of the supply of the Canaan Kendryte K510 CRB (buyer reference platform) AI development kit with digital camera module and LCD display, in addition to a software program development kit with U-Boot, Linux, and AI instruments which can be utilized to develop sensible audio and laptop imaginative and prescient purposes.

Kendryte K510 CRB-Kit development kit specs:

SoC – Canaan Kendryte K510 dual-core RISC-V64 CPU as much as 800MHz and 1x RISC-V DSP as much as 800MHz for as much as 3 TOPS AI efficiency, ultra-low-power wake-up VAD, H.264 video encoding as much as 2 channels @ 1080p60
System Memory – 512 MB LPDDR3 @ 1600 MHz
Storage – 16GB eMMC 5.1 flash, MicroSD card socket
Video Output – HDMI and built-in LCD display
Video Input – 2x MIPI CSI, 1x DVP interface, built-in digital camera board with 2 sensors
Audio – 3.5mm audio jack
Networking – Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 port, and wi-fi module
USB – Micro USB OTG 2.0 port
Debugging – USB-C to UART interface, JTAG header
Expansion – GPIO enlargement header with UART, SPI, and so forth…
Misc – LED, Reset and Boot buttons, on/off swap
Power Supply – 5V by way of USB Type-C port


Looking extra carefully on the board, we are able to see the K510-CRB-V1.2 service board and the K510-CORE-V1.2 system-on-module.

The SDK (K510 buildroot) will be discovered on Github with directions in Chinese solely right now, and a comparatively quick K510 technical reference handbook (575 pages PDF) can be discovered on Google Drive. The default Linux picture comes with a face detection demo that may be began from the serial console.

Another Github repository has extra detailed {hardware} and software program documentation, and the corporate posted just a few demos reminiscent of license plate recognition and face detection on their Bilibili account (That’s the equal of YouTube in China).
Just a few extra particulars (in English) could also be discovered on the product web page. The K510 CRB development kit is offered for $199 on Analoglamb. The worth is comparatively excessive, however I suppose it’s for individuals wanting early entry to the platform, and later this 12 months, we should always most likely get extra reasonably priced K510 development boards.
