The Qualcomm Robotics 5165 processor specifications

The Qualcomm RB5165 platform features an octa-core Qualcomm Kryo 858 chipset with an Adreno 650 GPU and discrete signal processors for computing, sound, and sensors. It also has the Spectra 380 ISP, capable of processing up to 2 Gigapixels per second. It also allows Dolby Vision video capture, 8K video recording @30fps, and can take photos up to 200 Megapixels. The platform features simultaneous capture of 4K HDR video at 120 frames per second, and up to 64 Megapixels photos.

The platform carries another chipset, Qualcomm’s Secure Processing Unit (SPU). That integrates secure boot, cryptographic accelerators, malware protection, and biometric identification. According to the company, the QRB5165, together with the platform’s Artificial Intelligence engine, can reach up to 15 Tera operations per second (TOPS).

For the development of this platform, Qualcomm has partnered with the Japanese electronics multinational TDK. It will be responsible for supplying the platform’s six-axis inertia measurement unit, among other components. The company will also handle the RB5’s robotic application algorithms, as well as the barometric pressure and temperature sensors it includes.

The RB5 platform supports Linux, Ubuntu distribution, and robotic middleware, such as the Robot 2.0 (ROS) operating system. Furthermore, it is compatible with OpenCL, OpenGL, and OpenCV. The Qualcomm RB5 platform is expected to go on sale before the end of 2020.
