Theobroma releases JAGUAR, a Single-Board Computer dedicated to autonomous mobile robots


Vienna/Austria, October 20, 2023 - JAGUAR SBC-RK3588-AMR is specifically designed for use in robust and reliable autonomous mobile robots (AMR). Typical applications include industrial automation, agriculture and horticulture, construction, retail intralogistics, and hospitality.

JAGUAR features Rockchip’s high-end ARM-based SOC RK3588. A variety of interfaces allow the integration of a broad range of sensors, actuators, and communication modules such as high-resolution cameras, LiDAR and ToF sensors. The octa-core CPU and the Neural Processing Unit (NPU) provide the required processing power for simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), and for detecting obstacles to avoid collisions while navigating autonomously.

“On a single board, JAGUAR provides a cost-efficient and optimized processing platform for autonomous mobile robots to be produced in series. It comes along with a board support package (BSP) that is optimally configured to the hardware and runs on Linux supported by Debian and Yocto. JAGUAR helps significantly shorten the product development cycle of our customers,” said Dr. Stefan Roth, Managing Director at Theobroma Systems.

Peak performance for autonomous mobile robots

The RK3588 features four ARM Cortex-A76 at 2.4 GHz and four ARM Cortex-A55 at 1.8 GHz, a Mali G610-GPU and an NPU with up to 6 TOPs. It opens up a wide range of possibilities for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning applications.

Multiple interfaces

Two SuperSpeed USB 3.1 interfaces enable high-resolution cameras, stereo cameras or sensors such as 2D and 3D LiDAR as well as ToF sensors to be connected. Four MIPI-CSI interfaces allow the cost-efficient connection of high-resolution cameras.

CANBUS, RS-485 and Gigabit Ethernet ensure seamless integration into the robot. Two PCIe slots host LTE, WiFi or Bluetooth and an NVMe/SSD. Finally, an optional “mezzanine” extension board, which plugs into a dedicated port, enables the use of a wide range of additional interfaces.

Single power supply and cooling concept

The compact 135 x 93 mm JAGUAR SBC board is powered by a single power source with a voltage range of 12 to 24 volts. While consumption is a moderate 18 watts under load, it delivers up to 35 watts for devices connected via PCIe and USB.

The RK3588 processor is located on the bottom of the PCBA as the highest element, which allows for a simplified thermal connection to the housing.

Ready for secure cloud services

JAGUAR’s Secure Element is Common Criteria (EAL6+) certified. It ensures government-grade security for identification and key storage. This enables cloud services, such as remote software management and preventive device management, to be rendered in accordance with the highest level of cybersecurity.
