NXP SBC-S32V234 Vision Prototype Kit

NXP’s SBC-S32V234 Vision Prototype Kit is an evaluation system and development platform supporting the S32V234 family of vision and sensor fusion processors. The S32V234 family is designed for ADAS, avionics, robotics, and other applications that rely on high-performance image processing and sensing.

The SBC-S32V234 Vision Prototype Kit consists of a System-on-Module and carrier receiver board.  The SoM includes the S32V234 CPU, 2GB of DDR3 DRAM, 16GB of eMMC flash, clocks, and power management. The SoM plugs into the carrier board, which provides multiple connectivity options and additional functionality to fully leverage the capabilities of the CPU.  

This includes two MIPI-CSI2 serial camera interfaces, which can be used with LVDS quad deserializers to support up to eight cameras total, an HDMI output that connects to the CPU through an RGB-to-HDMI IC on the carrier board, and a x1 PCIe 2.0 mini card slot.  The carrier board also offers a number of communications interfaces, including gigabit ethernet, two CAN-FD ports, LIN, and micro-USB. The kit is designed for use as a development platform, with the free S32 Design Studio, Vision SDK, Linux BSP, and graphing tools to aid development,  and it can also be directly integrated into industrial ADAS systems.

The S32V234 CPU itself is designed to provide performance, power savings, safety, and security for computation-intensive vision and sensor fusion applications. It includes a quad-core 64-bit Arm® Cortex®-A53 processor operating at up to 1GHz for high-performance computation and a single-core 32-bit Arm Cortex-M4 that is used for functional safety. The CPU also includes dual APEX-2 vision accelerators, an image signal processor, a high-performance 3D GPU, and a CSE2 hardware security module.
