Google has partnered with tech company Asus. Under this partnership, a single board computer will be introduced called Tinker Board. This is mainly being done to develop AI-based apps. Its concept is very similar to Raspberry Pi. It is believed that its size will be like a credit card. The first batch of Asus in computers may showcase the IoT Technology Conference to be held in Japan on 20 November.
According to a report by AnandTech, it will have two variants. The first will be Tinker Edge T and second will be Tinker Edge R. The report states that the Tinker Edge T will be based on the NXP i.MX8M. It will also have an Edge TPU chip. If you talk about Tinker Edge R, then the Rockchip RK3399 processor will be present in it. It will have NPU for 4K machine learning.
The wide-angle camera will be present: Tinker Edge T and Tinker Edge R are expected to offer input-output ports as well as features such as active cooling, USB 3.0 and Gigabit Ethernet port. At the same time, Asus has said that these will be called high-speed AI ad computing devices. It will easily identify things placed anywhere. It will also have a small wide-angle lens. Its viewing angle is 187 degrees.
Asus has said that this device will create an anomaly detection solution. The company has said that it will be able to understand a common image through AI image detection for any common image and camera.
