AM5718 system on module AM5718 DSP AM5718 PRU

Powerful Multi-media Performance

The development board is integrated with SGX544 3D and GC320 2D GPU which are applicable for senior graphic UI, meanwhile, Cortex-M4 GPU IPU2 is specially used in IVA image and video hardware codec

perfectly supports H.264, MPEG4 multiple encoding forms and video hardware decode playing, supports multiple video together with decoding playing, multiple decoding channels up to 1080P@60FPS,
supports MJPEG iamge hardware codec, and also the VPE can well support hardware image, video zooming and color spacing converting.

1080P H.264

Dual-screen Display

Support Linux 4.9.41, image system with QT5-wayland architecture, can be QT5.6 independent operation,

Also supports LCD and HDMI extended display, supports home screen sub-screen settings, exclusively provides waylandsink (hardware decoded video playback)

Window fixed-point display; Qt, OpenCV window fixed-point display solution


Multiple Expanding Functions

Set LCD resolution and boot logo in UBOOT,

flash OS image just by an SD card, WIFI, MIPI camera , CPU frequency auto adjusting and appoint a fixed frequency

Deeply optimized operating system

Forlinx chose a high-version Linux kernel and QT system to support Linux 4.9.41 plus QT5.6 and to optimize in depth.
