Vaaman is a high-performance edge computing board, featuring a six-core ARM CPU and an FPGA with 112,128 logic cells. Its unique design makes it ideal for addressing many challenges unmet by current products. With a 300-MBps link between FPGA and CPU, Vaaman is optimized for hardware acceleration and excels at parallel computing. Vaaman’s versatility extends to its comprehensive range of interfaces, including PCI, HDMI, USB, MIPI, audio, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, BLE, LVDS, and GPIOs.

Vaaman accelerates your most demanding edge-computing scenarios.

Overcome Challenges With Parallel Processing

Vaaman stands at the forefront of Edge AI and ML acceleration, providing a dynamic platform for groundbreaking applications. We are currently developing a custom platform called "Gati," which will enable custom end-to-end solutions, and enable convolutional neural networks (CNN) exclusively on Vaaman. By mapping these advanced algorithms to the FPGA, the CPU is left free to handle other critical tasks, which improves overall performance.
