it delivers long and stable operation between -40°C and 85°C. Backplane reference design and other open resources are provided for users
to make further customization.

RK3568J industrial-grade processor

The quad-core 64-bit Cortex-A55 processor, with 22nm lithography process, has frequency up to 2.0GHz, delivering efficient and
stable performance for data processing of back-end equipment. There are a variety of storage options, allowing customers to
quickly implement the research and production of products.

8GB large RAM, all-data-link ECC

It supports up to 8GB RAM, with up to 32Bit width and frequency up to 1600MHz. It supports all-data-link ECC, making data safer
and more reliable, and meeting the requirements of running large-memory products.

Integrated co-processors — GPU, VPU, NPU

It is integrated with dual-core GPU, high-performance VPU and high-efficiency NPU. The GPU supports OpenGL ES3.2/2.0/1.1, Vulkan1.1. The
VPU can achieve 4K 60fps H.265/H.264/VP9 video decoding and 1920x1080@60fps H.265/ H.264 video encoding. The NPU supports one-click
switching of mainstream frameworks like Caffe/TensorFlow.

Various display interfaces, dual cameras supported

With MIPI-CSI x2, MIPI-DSI x2, HDMI2.0 and EDP video interface, it can support up to three screen output with different display. The
built-in 8M ISP supports dual cameras and HDR. Video input interface can be connected to an external camera or multiple cameras. The
board can be used in NVR, intelligent terminal, multimedia advertising player, etc.

Powerful network communication

It is integrated with PCIe3.0, GMAC Ethernet controller, SDIO3.0 interface, and can be extended to multi-channel Gigabit Ethernet,
WiFi 6/Bluetooth, 5G/4G LTE, enabling higher-rate communication.
