e-con Systems, Inc., specialist maker of Computer on modules, has introduced the eSOMTK1 System On Module, which is based on nVIDIA TK1 ARM Cortex, A-15 Quad core Processor running up to 2.3GHz. The product features 3 high-speed camera interfaces with support for 13MP camera and Video Streaming 4K@30fps.

The eSOMTK1 exposes the complete range of interfaces provided by the Tegra K1 processor through its connectors, so that the customers can get the complete functionality without going through the complex design requirements of the processor sub system including memory and power manager. eSOMTK1 has three camera interfaces provided with one 1-lane MIPI CSI-2 and two 4-lane MIPI CSI-2. The 4-lane interface allows 4K streaming at 30fps. In addition, the eSOMTK1 offers a wide range of interfaces from simple GPIOs, industry standard I2C, SPI, UART, PCIe, SATA and USB 3.0.

Other than exposing the native features of the Tegra K1 processor, the eSOMTK1 includes an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for 3D gyroscope & 3D acceleration. Further, the eSOMTK1 has an inbuilt Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (BLE).

The eSOMTK1 answers the demand for powerful computing platform for high-end image analytics, Deep Learning and Virtual/Augmented reality applications, according to Ashok Babu, president of e-con Systems. "Together with the Propus Development that is supporting three simultaneous cameras and wide range of peripherals, this will be powerful development kit for the algorithm developers. While going for production, customers can use our eSOMTK1 SOM in their final product, without going through the complex design of high-speed CPU, thereby reducing the time-to-market for the new products."

The eSOMTK1 at volumes is available at USD 149 onwards and samples can be bought from the Webstore.

Evaluation kit customers willing to evaluate the eSOMTK1 can ordering the Propus – eSOMTK1 development kit from e-con Systems' Webstore. The development kit, among other accessories, also features a 13MP camera board, 4 MP RGB-IR camera board and Wi-Fi + Bluetooth adaptor board. BSP support is available for both Linux and Android.
