Geniatech K3-3568 Development Board for Smart Display Devices
Six months since the release of the Geniatech DB10 AI development board for smart automation applications, the manufacturer has come up with an RK3568-based K3 intelligent development board with high performance and stability. More than a year after the launch of RK3568, it is surprising to see Geniatech embed the system-on-chip in its newest development board. There are several reasons to choose this SoC over the recently introduced powerful and high-performance chips. Let us dive into what makes K3 so much RK3568.
Rockchip RK3568 is a general-purpose SoC made in 22nm process technology, designed for industrial control automation deployment. At the heart of the SoC is the Arm-based Cortex-A55 processor integrated alongside Mali G52 2EE graphics processor supporting 4K video decoding and 1080p video encoding. With built-in NPUs and embedded Neon co-processors can be utilized for lightweight AI workloads. Officially supporting Android 11 and Linux distros, Rockchip RK3568 makes it into the world of IoT gateways, industrial equipment and vehicular subsystems.
