The EMC³ is a carrier card designed to be populated with AMD’s K26 SoM and is PCIe/104 “OneBank” compatible. The EMC³ is both a development platform and deployment solution for embedded AI and Vision applications targeted towards embedded HW & SW developers.
EMC³ can be used as a complete stand-alone solution or be part of a stack of PC/104 boards.
The EMC³ carrier, when populated with the KRIA-K26 SOM, provides a completed embedded system targeted towards robotics and vison processing. The EMC³ carrier card allows up to eight cameras connected via MIPI interfaces in addition to two USB3.0 Type-C camera inputs. These consist of x4 IAS camera interfaces which incorporate an OnSemi image processor per two inputs and x4 Raspberry Pi (22 pin) camera inputs.
The Zynq Ultracscale+ MPSoC provides AI Inference at lower power with low latency; vision processing applications can be implemented within the FPGA fabric or within the processor.
The EMC³ is equipped with high-speed connectivity, allowing fast transfer of raw data or the results of AI inference and vision processing. The Samtec High-Density connector incorporates a 60pin Samtec connector capable of PCIe Gen3 data transfers. The EMC3 carrier complies with PCIe/104 standards allowing interfacing to peripheral boards through the OneBank connector, either Top mounting or bottom mounting, utilising the x1 PCIe Gen3 lanes. Two wired ethernet connections at 1 Gb also facilitate data transfer, with one connection to the PS and the other to the PL. The ethernet connection to the PL enables industrial ethernet control, such as Real-Time networking interfaces and Time Sensitive Networking (TSN).
Large data storage is available by using an external SSD via an onboard SATA connector.
Wireless connectivity is supplied via an 802.11 b/g/n WiFi module.
The mini PCIe connector allows the connection of additional peripheral cards.
The EMC³ is defined as a PCIe/104 processor which can sit at either the Top or Bottom of the stack. When the EMC³ is configured as a HOST power is applied via the DC input with a range between 8.5V and 36V. Connections to peripheral boards are achieved through the OneBank connection either stacking up or down.
The EMC³ can also function as a peripheral board which requires external powering.
