Jun 13, 2024 — by Giorgio Mendoza 469 views

The Luckfox Pico Ultra RV1106 is a compact, Linux-based micro development board powered by Rockchip RV1106, tailored for embedded applications. It features a single-core ARM Cortex-A7 32-bit processor with NEON and Floating Point Unit enhancements.

Embedded in the Luckfox Pico Ultra is Rockchip’s fourth-generation Neural Processing Unit, which supports int4, int8, and int16 hybrid quantization, as noted on the product page. This NPU delivers a computational power of 0.5 TOPS when using int8, and can reach up to 1.0 TOPS with int4.
