Geniatech DB10 AI Development Board For Smart Applications


We recently saw a Banana Pi BMP-M2S single-board computer that was powered by the powerful Amlogic A311D processor. Prior to the release of Banana Pi BMP-M2S, the Geniatech DB10 AI development board came to light with the same AI processor onboard. The DB10 AI development board is huge hardware when compared to the Banana Pi BMP-M2S SBC. But of course, looking at the number of interfaces it is justifiable.

Regarding the onboard powerful AI processor featuring quad-core ARM Cortex-A73 and a dual-core Cortex-A53 core with L2 cache to improve system performance. The integrated ARM Mali-G52 MP4 (6EE) supports OpenGL ES 3.2, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenCL 2.0. The hardcore NPU is capable of providing high performance for AI tasks with a speed of 5 TOPS and supports INT8 inference for all deep learning frameworks including TensorFlow and Caffe.

DB10 AI Development Board Interfaces

The video interface through HDMI IN gives the maximum resolution of up to 1920 x 1080 pixels at 60 frames per second, while the HDMI OUT has the support for maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels at 60 fps. With the 4GB LPDDR4 variant, the hardware is expected to be smooth for high-end multimedia applications that involve video interfacing.

Geniatech DB10 AI development board comes with optional 3G/4G support while inbuilt Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth. It is fascinating to see Wi-Fi 802.11ac support that can give a high data rate for video transfer. The board can be powered using a DC jack at 12V/2A. If you are interested in purchasing the board that runs Android and Linux, please visit the product page where the pricing is not yet disclosed.
