Octa-core Rockchip based SBC for autonomous mobile robots

Oct 20, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 438 views

The JAGUAR is a Single-Board Computer featuring the high-end RK3588 processor and designed to speed up applications that involve robotics, SLAM and obstacle detection. This SBC also supports the latest Debian 12 Bookworm in addition to Yocto.

As shown in the board layout image, the RK3588 is located on the bottom side of the PCBA for thermal efficiency.

  • RK3588 Quad-core Cortex-A76 (up to 2.4 GHz); Quad-core Cortex-A55 cores (up to 1.8 GHz); 3x Cortex-M0 coprocessors; Arm Mali-G610 MP4 GPU; 6 TOPS NPU

For communication and connectivity, the JAGUAR comes equipped with CANBUS, RS-485, Gigabit Ethernet, and multiple PCIe slots to accommodate LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NVMe/SSD modules.

An optional “mezzanine” extension board provides access to various peripherals including 2x MIPI CSI, 2x CAN, 3x SPI, 2x I2S, 34x GPIOs, 13x PWM, 1x PCIe 2.0, 1x SDIO, 4x UART, 1x SATA and 1x RGMII (Gigabit ethernet).
