SECO, a leading provider of embedded technology solutions, has announced the launch of its new board, Maury. Maury is a high-performance NXP processor board that is designed to cater to the needs of a wide range of embedded systems. The board features an Arm Cortex-A55, Cortex-M33, and Ethos-U65 neural network processor, making it an ideal choice for applications that require real-time processing, power efficiency, and advanced machine learning capabilities.
As an NXP Early Access Program participant and an NXP Gold Partner, SECO started development of Maury before the general availability of the NXP i.MX 93 processor, which is expected in the third quarter of 2023. The board’s neural processing unit has 0.5Top/s, which is useful for a variety of applications, including keyword recognition, noise reduction, beam-forming, Deep Speech 2, and image recognition (such as ResNet-50). The board can convert network models based on frameworks such as TensorFlow, MXNet, PyTorch, or Caffe, making it a flexible option for a wide range of use cases.
The Maury board is available in various versions, covering different i.MX 933x and 935x processors, with up to 2GB of soldered LPDDR4X/LPDDR4-3200. Depending on the version and options, the board’s interfaces can include 2x Gigabit Ethernet, soldered M.2 1216 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth LE module, USB 2.0 OTG, 4x USB 2.0 host, 2x CAN, 4x UART, MIPI-CSI (camera), and I2S. Display options include a single-channel LVDS up to 720p60 and MIPI-DSI or eDP with up to 1080p60.
The board’s compact size of 82 x 50mm and its operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C make it suitable for use in a wide range of applications. The operating system of the board is Yocto Linux, and there are plans to add Ubuntu (Debian) and Windows 10 IoT-Enterprise, making it a flexible option for a variety of projects.
SECO will showcase its new board, Maury, at Embedded World 2023 in Nuremberg, where visitors can find the company and its new board on stand 320 in Hall 1 from 14 to 16 March. With its advanced features and flexibility, Maury is expected to become a popular choice among developers and engineers looking to create innovative and high-performance embedded systems.
