Forlinx announces RISC-V SoM based on StarFive JH7110

Jul 31, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 528 views

Forlinx announced in July that they are working together with the RISC-V processor manufacturer StarFive to deliver the FET7110-C System-on-Chip based specifically on the Jinghong 7110 with RISC-V architecture. The SoM is expected to target applications in commercial, medical, industrial automation, etc.

Recently, a few embedded products have emerged utilizing the same processor, including the VisionFive 2, Pine64, and Milk-V Mars. However, the FET7110 SoM will be the first product from Forlinx to feature the integrated Jinghong 7110 processor. See the JH7110 block diagram for reference.


  • JH711064-bit RISC-V, up to 1.5GHz (quad SiFive U74-RV64GC, up to 5.09 CoreMark/MHz)

Regarding power consumption, Forlinx indicates that the JH7110 is segmented into eight independently switchable power domains. Additionally, the CPU frequency can be dynamically adjusted via software, allowing customers to fine-tune the frequency based on various application scenarios that require flexible control and power consumption.

The JH7110 facilitates camera access through both MIPI-CSI and DVP interfaces, with ISP support. It enables video decoding capabilities of up to 4K@60fps and video encoding of 1080p@30fps. Moreover, the SoM supports HDMI (4K@30fps) and RGB (1080p@30fps) display output interfaces, along with MIPI-DSI (2K@30fps).

Preliminary specifications listed for the FET7110-C SoM include: 

  • Memory/Storage:
    • LPDDR4 RAM
    • eMMC 5.0
    • 100 Mbps QSPI
    • SD 3.0/MMC 5.0
  • Connectivity:
    • 2x 1Gbps Ethernet
  • Display/Audio:
    • 1x PCM/I2S
    • 2s SPDIF
    • DSP
  • USB:
    • 1x USB 2.0
    • 1x USB 3.0
  • I/O Peripherals:
    • 6x UART, 7x I2C, 7x SPI
    • 2x SDIO
    • 8x PWM
    • 64x GPIOs
    • 2x CAN 2.0B

Further information

The Forlinx only mentions that the FET7110-C SoM will be launched soon. See the product announcement for more information.
