Mouser Electronics has signed a global distribution agreement with Sony Electronics to distribute its Spresense development boards for edge computing solutions.

Mouser, as part of the agreement, will offer Spresense high-performance development boards, enabling designers to develop a diverse range of implementation areas including logistics, robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), audio and the Internet of Things.

The Spresense Main Board is based on the powerful multicore CXD5602 microcontroller with GPS functionality by Sony. The Arduino-compatible development board is both compact and highly versatile and can be used both as a standalone device or with an extension board.

The Main Board supports a applications such as high-performance drones, time-lapse cameras, and smart speakers. The Extension Board offers additional features and hardware connectability to the Main Board, including Arduino Uno-compatible headers, a micro-SD card slot, extra USB port, and 3.5‑mm headphone jack.

The Spresense Camera Board extends the functionality of the Main Board with a compact, high-resolution 5 megapixel camera. The Camera Board uses the ISX012 Image Sensor by Sony, and its onboard encoder supports JPEG, RAW, Y/C, and RGB formats.

The Camera Board can be combined with the AI capabilities of the Main Board to offer advanced vision capabilities in IoT devices.
