Lantronix has an “Open-Q 5165RB” module that runs Linux on Qualcomm’s robotics-focused QRB5165 SoC. An accompanying “Open-Q 865 SOM Development Kit” works with the QRB5165 SoC or other Open-Q 865 family SOM.

Lantronix has announced its Open-Q 5165RB, a small (50 x 29mm) production-ready computer system-on-module) SOM based on Qualcomm’s QRB5165 SoC. The QRB5165 is a robotics-oriented variant of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865. Along with the module, Lantronix has rolled out the Open-Q 865 SOM development kit to complement the Open-Q 5165RB SOM. The developer consists of an open-frame carrier card that is compatible with the 5165RB SOM, exposing all of its available I/O. The products support Ubuntu 18.04 Linux.

This announcement follows Qualcomm’s Flight RB5 5G Platform, also based on the QRB5165, which was unveiled last week. In fact, the 5165RB is most likely the “unnamed module” used in the RB5 5G. We’ve covered a number of Lantronix development kits and dev kit/module combinations over the past 12 months, including the Open-Q 610 µSOM with associated Open-Q 610 µSOM development kit and the Snapdragon 888 Mobile HDK. But the 5165RB appears to be the company’s first solution specifically aimed at robotics.

According to Lantronix, the 5165RB is designed for use in advanced robotics for consumer, industrial and defense applications. The SOM is also useful for the development of AI-enabled drones, UAVs, machine vision platforms, AI processing gateways, face detection and recognition systems, deep learning and neural network processing and autonomous systems, the company says.

The SoC of the 5I65RB, the QRB5165, is built around the 7nm-manufactured, octa-core Snapdragon 865. It contains Cortex-A77 based Kryo 585 cores, 4x Cortex-A55 like Kyro cores, along with GPU, DSP , ISP and NPU cores. More details on the QRB5165 are detailed in last week’s Qualcomm’s Flight RB5 5G Platform story.

Apart from the 5I65RB SoC, the 5165RB module offers 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 GB of UFS flash. Wireless connectivity is powered by 802.11ax 2×2 MU-MIMO and Bluetooth 5.1. It is ready for Bluetooth v5.2 (Milan). High-speed interconnects include 1x PCIe Gen3 2-lane, 1x USB 3.1 with support for Type-C + DisplayPort v1.4 with USB SS data concurrency, and 1x USB 3.1 Type-A. Other I/O links include 4-bit SD 3.0, UART, I2C, I3C, SPI, configurable GPIOs, and sensor I/O for the Hexagon sensor DSP core.


For display interface, the module provides up to three 4K displays: 1x internal display via DSI and 2x external displays via DisplayPort. There are also 2x 4-lane MIPI DSI D-PHY 1.2 links. Displays are supported up to a resolution of 5040 x 2160 at 60 fps and support for touchscreens. Camera support includes 3x 4-lane MIPI CSI camera ports plus CCI I2C control. The SoC’s Spectra 480 ISP core supports multiple simultaneous cameras at 64MP, 30fps ZSL with a dual ISP.

Apart from Ubuntu 18.04 Linux support, module Linux support includes kernel v4.19, Wayland/Xorg display manager, apt pkg manager, ALSA sound, GStreamer, Video4Linux (V4L2), USB UVC camera support and Docker- support. A number of AI platforms are also compatible, such as TensorFlow Lite, Qualcomm Neural Processing SDK, Computer Vision SDK, and Neural Networks API. The SOM also supports Robot Operating System (ROS2).

Open-Q 865 SOM Development Kit

While the Open-Q 865 development kit can be used with the 5165RB module, it is in fact compatible with all production-ready Open-Q 865 family of SOMs from Lantronix. The kit is intended to be used as a starter port for evaluating any of the compatible Open-Q 865 family of SOMs or developing next-generation embedded and IoT devices, the company says. SOMs are sold separately from the dev kit, and touchscreen display and camera add-ons are available

The Open-Q 865 Development Kit consists of an open-frame Mini-ITX Form-factor (170 x 170 mm) carrier board with dual WiFi/Bluetooth PCB antennas, a SOM heat sink, and an STMicroelectronics sensor board. The kit is powered by a 12V/3A adapter (included) or a single cell Li-ion battery (not included). All available I/O of the SOM is visible and accessible via the carrier card. Operating system support and other compatible software depend on the specific SOM purchased and installed. So, for example, all of the I/O and software support described for the 5165RB module, discussed above, applies to an Open-Q 865 development kit used with the 5165RB SOM.
