SemiDrive-based CPU module aims for industrial applications

Sep 11, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 243 views

MYIR recently introduced an embedded platform based on a SemiDrive six-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz. The MYC-JD9360 CPU module includes a 0.8 TOPS NPU and it offers support for dual GbE ports, PCIe, dual displays and up to 135x GPIOs.

At the core of this module lies the D9-Pro Chip with TSMC 16nm FinFET process with the following architecture:

  • SemiDrive D9-Pro (D9360) — Six-core Arm Cortex-A55 (up to 1.6GHz); Single Arm Cortex-R5 (Up to 800MHz), dual-core Lock-step; 0.8 TOPS NPU; IMG PowerVR 9XM GPU (100 GFLOPS)

    As this device is using a little-known processor it would be helpful to know what level of software support is provided. Looking at MYIR pages it appears that it uses U-Boot 2021.04 and an ancient 4.14.61 Linux kernel.
