With the Open-Q 865XR SOM, Lantronix is targeting next-gen intelligent Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR) applications in sectors such as artificial intelligence (AI) machine learning, medical, gaming, logistics and retail.

“Our new Open-Q 865XR SOM gives product developers AR/VR capability at the edge, powerful general processing capability and professional-quality imaging needed to kickstart IoT application development,” says Jonathan Shipman, VP of Strategy at Lantronix Inc.

Lantronix’s Open-Q 865XR SOM is an ultra-compact (50mm x 29mm) production-ready SOM powered by the Qualcomm® SXR2130P that utilises Qualcomm® Technologies’ heterogenous compute expertise to deliver a System-on-Chip with multiple specialised processing cores, in addition to the Kryo™ 585 Octa-core CPU, including:

  • 5th generation AI engine — twice the performance of the previous generation with up to 15 TOPS
  • Dual Qualcomm® Spectra 480 ISP — supporting up to 64MP cameras
  • Qualcomm® Adreno 650 GPU — high performance graphics with power efficiency
  • Qualcomm® Hexagon 698 DSP — vision processing and machine learning
  • Adreno 665 VPU — high-quality, ultra HD video encode and decode

In addition, the Open-Q 865XR SOM delivers next-generation wireless and wired connectivity with more reliable performance and higher bandwidth, including:

  • Wi-Fi 6 — 802.11ax 2×2 MU-MIMO
  • Two-lane Gen3 PCIe
  • Two USB3.1 interfaces

Lantronix’s ultra-compact Open-Q 865XR SOM enables product designers to quickly kickstart development for IoT solutions needing advanced technologies at the edge.

The Open-Q 865XR delivers on exceptional functionality across many applications, including edge computing, augmented reality, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision and high-resolution input/output. Customer interest is high with initial engagements commencing over gaming, education, medical, logistics and retail applications.
