Competitive quad-core IoT solution


R16 is an efficient quad-core solution designed for IoT applications, which outperforms competitors in terms of its system performance, scalability, and energy-efficiency.

R16 packs four ARM Cortex-A7 CPU cores and Mali400MP2 graphics architecture to enable impressive system performance, and it perfectly supports various applications of mainstream operating systems such as Android and Linux.

To deliver better architecture scalability, R16 comes with an extensive connectivity and interfaces, including eight groups of GPIO, six UARTs, two SPIs, four TWIs, 4-lane MIPI DSI, LVDS, USB OTG/HOST, SD/MMC, I2S/PCM, RSB, and a lot more. R16 is designed to be extremely power-efficient to realise massive ubiquitous deployment. It achieves lower power consumption with a balanced combination of several features: the exceedingly power efficient Cortex-A7 CPU cores, the advanced fabrication process, the battery-saving DVFS technology support, and the low power design architectures.
