For quite some time I’ve been working on the Pika Spark, which is a Arduino Portenta X8 based micro robot control system combining an unprecedented amount of computing power and interfaces within an extremely small form factor.
Naturally Cyphal is going to be a first-class citizen .
- 4 x ARM Cortex-A53 up to 1.8 GHz / core
- 1 x ARM Cortex-M4 up to 400 MHz
- 2GB low power DDR4 DRAM
- 16GB eMMC flash module
STM32H747XI Micro-Control-Unit running bare-metal firmware for real-time applications.
- Cortex-M7 core up to 480 MHz with double-precision FPU
- Cortex-M4 core up to 240 MHz with FPU
- 1 MB RAM
- 2 MB Flash
All industrial wired interfaces are galvanically isolated to prevent ground-loops and increases overall system resilience.
- 2 x CAN / CAN FD (Controller Area Network)
- 2 x RS485
- Gigabit-Ethernet (1000BASE-T)
- Single-Pair Ethernet (10BASE-T1S)
- Debug-UART providing a Unix shell
- USB-C for flashing the Yocto image and connecting via adb (Android Debug Bridge)
- WiFi (Murata 1DX)
- 9-DoF (Degree-of-Freedom) IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit)
- EEPROM for configuration storage (24LC256)
