Analog Devices recently introduced an innovative addition to the growing list of use cases that leverage the powerful and versatile i.MX8M Plus SoM (System on Module) from SolidRun – a new TOF (“Time of Flight”) camera.
TOF technology, which uses refracted light to perform highly-accurate object measurements, is being deployed in a wide variety of applications, including automotive safety, gaming, robotics, and autonomous vehicle navigation.
The TOF camera, together with the computing power of the embedded SolidRun SoM, provides measurement accuracy of– 3 mm at a distance of 5 meters. A recent demonstration of the technology showed its effectiveness in automating package handling and delivery fulfillment operations.
Embedding up to four Arm Cortex A53 cores and a 2.3 TOPs NPU, the SolidRun SOM offers the outstanding performance needed for demanding network-edge machine learning and computer vision applications, while minimizing physical and power consumption footprints.
In addition, its array of high-speed interfaces (2 x Gigabit Ethernet, TSN, PCIe Gen 3, USB 3.0, CAN-FD) make the i.MX8M Plus SOM an ideal choice for industrial IoT and HMI applications.
