Intel Joule platforms available from Mouser

Mouser Electronics is shipping the Intel Joule 550x and 570x modules, capable of delivering human-like senses to a new generation of smart devices.

Featuring high end compute and graphics, with support for Intel RealSense depth-sensing cameras, and multiple high-speed interfaces, the Intel Joule platform enables developers to build embedded systems or take prototypes to commercial products faster, while also minimising development costs.

The Intel Joule compute modules are available in two configurations. The Intel Joule 550x module features a 64bit, 1.5GHz quad-core Intel Atom processor T5500 with 3GBytes of LPDDR4 RAM and 8GBytes of eMMC memory.

The higher performance Intel Joule 570x module offers a 64bit 1.7GHz quad-core Intel Atom processor T5700 with burst up to 2.4GHz plus 4GBytes of LPDDR4 RAM and 16GBytes of eMMC memory.

Both modules support 4K video capture and display, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity, and a customisable Linux-based operating system designed for IoT and smart devices. The modules’ interfaces include USB 3.0, I2C, UART, and multiple general-purpose inputs and outputs.

The modules are supported by Intel’s software and hardware ecosystem, which means engineers can choose the programming environment and take advantage of off-the-shelf libraries and peripherals to further accelerate development.

The modules are suitable for computer vision, robotics, drones, IIoT, VR, augmented reality, micro-servers and other applications that require high-end edge computing.

Mouser is also stocking the Intel Joule 550x developer kit and Intel Joule 570x developer kit, which include the corresponding Intel Joule module mounted on a compact expansion board.
