Advantech releases ROM-5720 module

Advantech has announced ROM-5720, a SMARC 2.0 module powered by the NXP ARM Cortex-A53 i.MX8M processor with excellent graphics performance and low power consumption.

The ROM-5720 supports 4Kp60 resolution via HDMI 2.0 and 4Kp60 H.265 decoding with HDR. It features a variety of interfaces: USB3.0, PCIe, Dual Gigabit Ethernet, two MIPI-CSI, and a four lane MIPI-DSI. ROM-5720 provides an ideal solution for a wide range of industrial applications such as infotainment, automation, HMI, and healthcare.

Excellent Graphics Performance for Machine Vision and Multimedia Applications

ROM-5720 adopts NXP i.MX8M SoC, which features up to four ARM Cortex-A53s and one additional general-purpose Cortex-M4 core processor for low-power processing. The ARM Cortex-A cores can be powered off while the Cortex-M4 subsystem performs low power, real-time system monitoring.

The Vivante GPU supports the latest OpenGL ES, OpenCL , OpenVG, and Vulkan for advanced graphics and accelerated compute workloads such as the Deep Learning Inference. ROM-5720 supports display output with HDMI2.0 (4096 x 2160 @60Hz), 1x4 lanes MIPI-DSI for multiple display, and two MIPI-CSI camera input. It provides a high resolution display and meets camera requirements for different machine vision and multimedia applications.

High-Speed Connectivity Interfaces

To extend the flexibility of various applications, ROM-5720 offers a range of interfaces, such as dual USB3.0, dual Giga Ethernet, PCIe2.1, and four RS232. It provides efficient interfaces for extending peripheral devices like high-speed storage, camera, wireless modules, and it works with touch and legacy devices to empower self-service kiosks and interactive multimedia applications.
