Qualcomm Robotics Platform and Qualcomm Hexagon Tensor Accelerator, is a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

On-device AI intelligence

The Qualcomm Robotics RB5 Platform supports the leading 5th generation Qualcomm AI Engine with the brand-new Hexagon Tensor Accelerator, pushing 15 trillion operations per second with maximum efficiency to run complex AI and deep learning workloads at the edge.

Dedicated high performance computer vision

Provides hardware acceleration for advanced computer vision applications using the dedicated computer vision hardware block EVA (Engine for Video Analytics). EVA provides enhancements for CV applications with reduced latencies for real time image processing decisions under decreased power for demanding budgets freeing up the DSP, GPU, and CPU capacity for other critical AI applications

Designed for industrial conditions

Operates in harsh industrial conditions & supports temperature range of -30°C to 105°C and has an option for extended lifecycle support until 2029. Communicates via industrial protocols such as EtherCAT & TSN and supports security at almost every layer.

Heterogenous computing

The RB5 platform provides powerful heterogeneous Computing Capabilities using the Octa Core Qualcomm® Kryo™ 858 CPU, powerful Qualcomm® Adreno™ 650 GPU, multiple DSPs (compute, audio, and sensor) and ISPs. It also contains the dedicated, powerful Qualcomm AI Engine, which includes the Hexagon Tensor Accelerator, and dedicated computer vision hardware block EVA (Engine for Video Analytics), designed to achieve peak performance while being able to also support small battery-operated robots with challenging power and thermal dissipation requirements.

Comprehensive development kit

Further reduce development time and complexity using a feature packed development kit. The kit includes the robotics-focused development board based on the QRB5165 processor, compliant with the 96Boards open hardware specification for supporting a broad range of mezzanine-board expansions The platform offers support for Linux, Ubuntu and Robot Operating System (ROS) 2, as well as pre-integrated drivers for various cameras, sensors and connectivity.

Flexible commercialization design options

In addition to a feature packed development kit, the platform offers a range of solutions for commercialization from off-the-shelf System-on-Module (SoM) solutions to speed commercialization, to the flexibility for chip-on-board designs for cost-optimization at scale and also package-on-package (POP) and non-POP designs.
