(Update) MediaTek presents Genio 1200 based SoM compatible with ADLINK’s carrier board

Sep 25, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 317 views

MediaTek released a System on Module (SoM) that integrates their latest Genio 1200 AIoT (MT8395) System on Chip showcased last month. The LEC-MTK-I1200 features 8-cores (4x Cortex-A78/4x A55), 5-cores Arm Mali-G57 GPU and an APU system (5 TOPS). For quick prototyping, ADLINK has also designed a development board compatible with the LEC-MTK-I1200.

The LEC-MTK-I1200 comes in a SMARC 2.1 factor form and combines four Arm Cortex-A78 (up to 2.2GHz) and four Arm Cortex-A55  (up to 2.0GHz). The SoM can be configured to have four or eight GB of LPPDR4X and up to 256GB of UFS storage (32GB standard).

There is also support for 4K resolution via HDMI and DSI connectors; for camera devices the System on Module includes support for up to three MIPI CSI 4 lanes. In addition, the SoM includes a five-core Arm Mali-G57 GPU supporting OpenGL ES 3.2/2.0/1.1, Vulkan 1.1/1.0 and OpenCL 2.2.

As previously mentioned, ADLINK has developed the I-Pi SMARC 1200 which functions as a carrier board for LEC-MTK-I1200 from MediaTek. The comes in a compact design (82 mm x 50 mm) and provides interfaces such as USB ports, RJ45 ports, 40-pin headers, audio jack, CSI connectors and a large heatsink.
