UNIT-V is the new AI Camera powered by Kendryte K210 .An edge computing system-on-chip(SoC) with dual-core 64bit RISC-V CPU and Convolutional Neural Network neural network processor.UNIT-V AI Camera features its integration with machine vision capabilities, featuring the unprocessed acceptability to AI Visioning with high energy efficiency and low cost. We co-oped with Sipeed providing the MicroPython environment makes programming on UNIT-V easier. Support MicroPython development environment, which makes the program code more concise when you use UNIT-V for project development.Equipped with OV2640 (2 megapixel) image sensor, it is an ideal choice for machine vision project.It is equipped with two programmable keys and an RGB LED indicator on the front for convenient status display.At the bottom, there is a PH2.0*4P interface and a type-C interface compatible with grove, which is convenient to connect with the main controllor. Support TF card to expand memory, related material and model file call more convenient.
The Kendryte K210 is a system-on-chip (SoC) that integrates machine vision. Using TSMC’s ultra-low-power 28-nm advanced process with dualcore 64-bit processors for better power efficiency, stability and reliability. The SoC strives for ”zero threshold” development and to be deployable in the user’s products in the shortest possible time, giving the product artificial intelligence
The chip contains a high-performance, low power RISC-V ISA-based dual core 64-bit CPU with the following features:
UNIT-V does not currently recognize all types of MicroSD cards. We have tested some common SD cards. The test results are as follows.
To communicate to M5StickC by UART, fairly slow than Maixpy terminal.
Buffering issue? I'm not sure at this moment.
I use M5StickV and UnitV.
M5StickV is usefull for standalone AI camera But which is a bits difficult for assembling with robot . On the other hand, UnitV is smaller and easy to assemble for some hobby robot.
So, this gadget is very cool and useful!
This product needs providing a Quick Start Guide or description document!
Also NO sample code provided! Caution for beginners!
When running a simple snapshot code, after 3 minutes, the body becomes hot!!
