Supported Texas Instruments Processors


Bring smart cameras, robots and intelligent machines to life with the TDA4VM processor starter kit. With a fast setup process and an assortment of foundational demos and tutorials, you can start prototyping a vision-based application in less than an hour. The kit enables 8 TOPS of deep learning performance and hardware-accelerated edge AI processing without any hand-tooling. You can unleash high-speed AI in your embedded application only using Linux and industry standard APIs (TensorFlow Lite, ONNX Runtime, TVM, GStreamer, Docker, ROS, OpenGL ES).

  • Performance: TDA4VM processor enables 8 TOPS deep learning performance and hardware-accelerated edge AI at low power

  • Camera interfaces: two CSI-2 ports compatibe with Raspberry Pi and a high-speed 40-pin Semtec camera connector connecting up to 8 cameras (requires TIDA-01413 sensor fusion add-on card)

  • Connectivity: 3 USB 3.0 Type A ports, 1 USB 3.0 Type C ports, 1 ethernet port, 1 M.2 Key E connector and 1 M.2 Key M connector, 4 CAN-FD interfaces, 4 UART terminals over 1 USB bridge

  • Memory: DRAM, LPDDR4-4266, 4 gigabytes total memory, support for inline ECC

  • Display: DisplayPort with up to 4K resolution with MST support and 1080 HDMI


Supported Texas Instruments Software

TI enables an interplay of multiple Open Source components such as GStreamer, OpenCV and Deep-learning runtimes such as TFLite, ONNX and Neo-AI DLR. Edge AI devkit supports edit-build-debug cycles directly on target without needing a PC to cross-compile and build the applications.


TI provides perception-based examples such as image classification, object detection, and semantic segmentation in both Python and C++ variants.
