AI performance

Featuring a powerful quad-core Arm processor and a high-performance AI accelerator integrated into a single System-on-a-Chip (SoC), the Hailo-15H delivers up to 20 TOPS (Tera Operations Per Second). This high computing capacity enables leveraging the AI for both image enhancement, such as low-light denoising and high dynamic range, as well as for superior video analytics. This unique combination empowers developers to process multiple complex deep-learning AI applications in parallel, providing unrivaled speed, efficiency, and unparalleled video quality. Additionally, the Hailo-15H enables high FPS DL model processing, ensuring fast and highly accurate detection of objects in real time. All these cutting-edge features are delivered within the standard camera power consumption and cost envelope, making the Hailo-15H SOM the go-to solution for next-generation AI-powered applications.


4K60 image quality

Equipped with AI-powered vision enhancement capabilities, the Hailo-15H SOM ensures exceptional image quality with support for premium 4K60 or 2x4K30 resolution and a 12MP ISP video pipeline. Leveraging its comprehensive vision library and advanced image processing algorithms, the Hailo-15H SOM delivers unmatched clarity and precision, enhancing the accuracy and reliability of AI vision applications.

Moreover, the Hailo-15H SOM is compatible with various micro-camera solutions, including models from Leopard Imaging. Its pre-tuned MIPI-CSI2 interface seamlessly integrates with a range of micro-camera solutions, providing developers with a hassle-free, plug-and-play experience. This ensures the effortless incorporation of high-quality imaging capabilities into AI-powered applications, further enhancing their functionality and performance.


Small footprint, security, comprehensive tools

The Hailo-15H SOM offers unparalleled flexibility and security, packed into an ultra-compact form factor measuring just 47- x 30-mm. Despite its small size, this SOM is designed to withstand extreme environmental conditions, with a temperature range spanning from -40°C to 85°C. This ensures reliable operation in a variety of industrial settings, making it ideal for deployment in harsh environments. 

The SOM comes with a comprehensive software suite, including drivers, libraries, and tools designed to streamline the development of AI vision applications. With support for standard ML frameworks such as Keras, TensorFlow, PyTorch, and ONNX, as well as specialized image and video processing algorithms, the Hailo-15H SOM provides engineers with everything they need to accelerate their projects.

Additionally, the Hailo-15H SOM features industry-standard infrastructures and frameworks, coupled with robust security measures such as secure boot and debug with the hardware-accelerated crypto library, TrustZone, TRNG, and Firewall.

Additionally, SolidRun will soon announce an expansion to the Hailo SOM product line, which will include a Hailo-15M SOM, featuring the same pinout for seamless integration, as well as a new carrier board to expand the development and prototyping with these new SOMs. 

The Hailo-15 SOM will be demonstrated at Embedded World in Nuremberg.
