High-Performance Mixtile Core 3588E: A Compact System-on-Module with Advanced AI Capabilities

Mixtile develops Core 588E SOM, a high-performance SOM with an edge connector. Powered by Rockchip RK3588 SoC, this board is compatible with NVIDIA Jetson TX2 NX carrier boards.

Mixtile, a well-known IoT hardware and compute module manufacturer, has recently announced the mixtile core 3588E System on Module. The SOM boasts a powerful Rockchip RK3588 SoC with a 260-pin SO-DIMM connector. The system designers at Mixtile designed the board to be compatible with NVIDIA Jetson TX2 NX carrier boards, making the integration process seamless.

The Rockchip RK3588 system-on-chip ships with four Arm Cortex-A76 high-performance cores at 2.4GHz and four Cortex-A55 low-powred cores at 1.8GHz. It also has a Mali-G610 graphics processor with 6 TOPS NPUs. There’s also 15GB eMMC storage as standard and support for an 8K video encoder and decoder. Designed with the latest 7nm Technology, the total TDP of this device is only 7W. The company has confirmed that the module includes four PCI Express Gen 3 lanes for external accelerators or other hardware integration.

Mixtile provides Android 11 and Debian 11 BSPs for the Rockchip RK3588 module. On the other hand, the Jeston Nano module comes with Ubuntu 18.04 or 20.04. Apart from the software difference, the Mixtile’s module is expected to give more value for its cost compared to the NVIDIA Jetson modules. However, that depends on the use case.

According to the product page, the Mixtile core 3588E SOM is available to order in two variants — the 4GB model comes at $109, and the 16GB version at $159; they also announced a 32GB version, but it is not available at the time of writing this article.

The pricing is based on an early bird pre-order, which is already 18% less than the original price. But they will increase on August 31. Additionally, these devices are expected to be delivered in mid-October via international air mail.
