Highlights of RSC201 Fanless Edge Computer with Xilinx Kria SoM


Based on Xilinx’s Kria K26 System-on-Module, Axiomtek’s RSC201 Vision System was released last month for use in business and industry. With a single 1x GbE LAN port, a single 1x CAN bus, a single 1x 4K display, and 5G connectivity, the RSC201 is well-equipped. An H.264/265 video codec is built right into the Kria K26 SoM, which also boasts a Quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 MPCore (up to 1.5GHz), a Dual-core Arm Cortex-R5F MPCore (up to 600MHz), a Mali-400 MP2 (up to 667MHz), and 1.36TOPS.

The device has one M.2 Key B 2242 slot and up to 16GB of eMMC flash storage for SATA 3.0. There is only one DisplayPort for this screen, and its maximum resolution is 4Kp60. The RSC201 has an M.2 B-Key 3052 slot for 5G modules, a SIM slot, and a Gigabit Ethernet interface. The RS201 is approved by CE and FCC as Class A and is immune to vibration (3.5 Grms, 5 to 500Hz, X, Y, Z directions). Although the product page boasts Linux compatibility, as of this writing, the Downloads page is still empty.

RSC201 peripherals


About 64 bits of onboard DDR4 (Up to 4GB) and eMMC (Up to 16GB) are included in the RSC201. There includes a GbE LAN port for communication, and the DisplayPort version is 1.4. There is a single SIM card slot and one each M.2 Key B 2242 and M.2 B-Key 3052 expansion slots. There are two USB 3.0 ports. There is one RS-232 COM port, one PMOD port, and one CAN bus port used for input and output. Linux is the operating system, and there are 2 LEDs for monitoring system activity.

The package weighs roughly 1.5 kg and has dimensions of 150.0 x 111.0 x 65.6 mm. Aluminum extrusion and the robust steel construction also contribute to its IP40 rating. You may use it from -30 degrees to 75 degrees, and the voltage is between 12 and 24 volts.

Cameras using the GbE LAN interface are supported, and so is the 5G wireless connection. Non-condensing relative humidity between 5% and 95%. The X, Y, and Z axes vibrate at frequencies between 5 and 500 Hz, and the overall level of vibration is about 3.5 Grms. The option to place it on the wall is included. Its cutting-edge capabilities make it a top choice for use in edge AI smart city and industrial settings.
