Excellent in computation and energy efficiency
The AX650N is a powerful SOC chip that excels in both computing ratio and energy efficiency ratio. This chip features an A55 octa-core processor, a formidable NPU capable of 43.2TOPS@int4 or 10.8TOPS@int8, and an ISP that supports impressive 8K@30fps along with H.264 and H.265 VPU encoding capabilities. Additionally, the AX650N can support a wide array of interfaces, including 64bit LPDDR4X support, multi-directional MIPI input, Gigabit Ethernet, USB, and HDMI 2.0B output. With a 32 Road 1080P@30FPS decoding capability, it truly sets itself apart. Emphasizing its remarkable performance, this phenomenal chip is poised to elevate the fields of smart cities, smart education, and smart manufacturing, enabling users to unlock even greater value.
The main advantages
With the Orange Pi Orin M.2 AI Card, developers can harness the power of AI on their Raspberry Pi 5 or other single-board computers that lack native NPU support. This opens up a realm of possibilities for AI applications in domains such as robotics, smart home automation, and edge computing.
The card itself is compact and easy to install, featuring an M.2 form factor that can be easily plugged into compatible SBCs. In addition to the hardware, the OPi Orin M.2 AI Card comes with software support for popular AI frameworks such as TensorFlow and PyTorch. This makes it easy for developers to get started with AI development on their SBCs, even if they have limited experience in this area.
The Orange Pi Orin M.2 AI Card provides enhancement to the AI capabilities of SBCs, such as the Raspberry Pi 5, which lack built-in AI support. Thanks to its robust hardware and software support, developers now have the opportunity to build sophisticated AI applications on these compact and cost-effective devices. This opens up a multitude of new avenues for innovation in the realm of embedded systems and IoT.
