ASUS and Google have partnered on a mini PC project. The two companies are collaborating on Tinker Board single board computers (SBCs), which like the Raspberry Pi are credit card sized systems that can be used for a variety of projects. What makes this partnership somewhat unique, however, is the focus on edge AI computing. There are two "Tinker Edge" models—Tinker Edge T and Tinker Edge R. The Tinker Edge T (shown above) pairs an NXP i.MX8M ARM processor with an Edge TPU to accelerate local inference workloads using TensorFlow Lite. It also features a USB Type-C port, a pair of USB 3.0 ports, a GbE LAN port, and an HDMI port. ASUS Tinker Board R The Tinker Board R, meanwhile, is powered... Read more...
ASUS first announced its competitor for the Raspberry Pi 3 back in late January. Aimed at DIY enthusiasts, the Tinker Board promises unmatched performance and connectivity options compared to the perennial favorite in this arena. Today, ASUS is announcing that the Tinker Board is now available in North America, where it will be priced at $54.99. ASUS says that the single-board system is capable of powering all of your projects from robots to media boxes to coding machine for budding programmers. The Tinker Board is powered by a Rockchip RK3288 quad-core ARM SoC that is clocked at 1.8GHz, and has an integrated Mali-T764 GPU (600MHz). The Tinker Board is no slouch when it comes to rest of its specs... Read more...
