Orbbec Persee+ 3D Camera integrates Neural Processing Unit for AI/ML applications

April 27, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza


The Persee+ 3D camera is the 2nd generation of the camera computer line developed by Orbbec. The SoC (System on Chip) features Orbbec’s Astra 3D+ camera and an integrated ARM processor optimized for artificial intelligence and machine learning applications.

The Persee+ 3D camera implements the Amlogic A311D as the processor unit. The Smart Vision SoC (System on Chip) has 4x ARM A73 cores and 2x ARM A53 cores as well as an NPU optimized for AI/ML applications.

The Persee+ includes Orbbec’s Astra+ 3D structured light camera optimized for lengthy (0.6-8m) use cases. The maximum RGB resolution is 1920 × 1080 pixels at 30 fps and the maximum depth resolution is 640 × 480 pixels at 30 fps.

Other upgrades include improved memory and storage support (4GB RAM and 32GB eMMC). The device also offers support for RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0. According to Orbbec, the Persee+ can be connected to a TV/monitor (via HDMI) or used without a display via the built-in Astra+ 3D camera.
