Qualcomm® Robotics RB3 Platform(SDA845)
The Qualcomm Robotics RB3 development kit supports the development of smart, power-efficient and cost-effective robots by combining high-performance heterogeneous computing, Qualcomm® Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engine for on-device machine learning, computer vision, vault-like security, multimedia and Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity (4G/LTE and CBRS). Comprised of a comprehensive set of software & hardware, including the industry’s best performing 6-Axis Motion Sensor (ICM-42688), Top Port PDM Microphone (ICS-41351), and Barometric Pressure Sensor (ICP-10101) from TDK InvenSense.The Qualcomm Robotics RB3 development kit is designed to help manufacturers and developers create robotic products ranging from large industrial and enterprise robots to small battery-operated one’s with challenging power and thermal dissipation requirements.
The Qualcomm Robotics RB3 development kit includes the purpose-built robotics-focused DragonBoard™ 845c development board, based on the Qualcomm® SDA845 processor and compliant with the 96Boards open hardware specification to support a broad range of mezzanine-board expansions.
The Qualcomm SDA845 processor is a heterogeneous computing architecture and integrates an Octa Core Qualcomm ® Kryo™ CPU with performance up to 2.8GHz a Qualcomm® Adreno™ 630 Visual Processing Subsystem (including GPU, VPU and DPU), and a Qualcomm ® Hexagon™ 685 DSP with Hexagon Vector Extensions (HVX) delivering sophisticated, on-device AI processing and mobile-optimized computer vision (CV) capabilities for perception, navigation and manipulation.
The development board supports Linux and Robotics Operating System (ROS), while also including support for the Qualcomm® Neural Processing software development kit (SDK) for advanced on-device AI, the Qualcomm ® Computer Vision Suite, the Qualcomm ® Hexagon DSP SDK, and AWS RoboMaker.
