Unleash AI Performance at the Edge with ASUS Tinker Edge R

With the new ASUS Tinker Edge R Single-Board-Computer, “Intelligence at the Edge” becomes more easiness for solution development!


Based on the performant Rockchip RK3399PRO processor with its Big-Little architecture with 2x ARM® Cortex®-A72 and 4x ARM® Cortex®-A53 cores, completed with an additional NPU for 8-bit/16-bit inference support and an ARM® Mali™-T860 MP4 GPU, the ASUS Tinker Edge R is the perfect fit for many applications, where inference needs to be done as close as possible to a camera or other sensor devices, needing neural network processing on a higher level.

Typical applications, such as face recognition, number plate recognition, people counting or parking place control, benefit from the computing and inference power close to the data source, reducing bandwith demands for cloud based inference or gateway based inference.

The board is Mircosoft Azure certified and can be used as well in mixed environments for machine learning tasks.
