E-HEALTH

Data-driven technologies for healthcare (e-Health) provide diverse benefits to patients and medical professionals. Electronic patient records help prevent adverse drug interactions, internet-based prescriptions provide timely medical intervention, and insurance checks provide swift payment for medical services.

E-Health systems utilize AI layered on secure and private networks to improve the efficacy of healthcare via medical data warehousing and authentication.

All our SoM modules support e-Health applications, providing:

  • Advanced security using an on-module secure element with government-grade security
  • Rich peripherals and superior computing power for AI and inference
  • Secure boot
  • Network connectivity

HUMAN MACHINE INTERFACE/AUTOMATION

Human-machine interfaces (HMI) are employed extensively throughout modern technology. An HMI uses human touch as a point of communication between a machine and a user e.g., in smartphones, laptops, cars, and industrial control equipment.

The essential requirements for HMI/automation applications are an intuitive user interface with embedded AI, secure elements for data protection, and superior computing power.

Theobroma Systems provides turnkey solutions or validated modules for HMI applications.

  • 4K (UHD) HDR10 video output for crisp, life-like images and richer colours (icon)
  • 4K video playback for the best picture decoding quality (icon)
  • Glueless display attachment for multiple independent displays (icon)
  • Glueless camera sensor interface for eye-tracking or analysis of viewer impression (icon)

Our RK3368-µQ7 and PX30-µQ7 modules provide:

  • Single 1080p display
  • Rich peripheral interface
  • Small form-factor

MACHINE LEARNING (AI)

From “Chatbots” that provide customer service on a webpage to GPS systems that map out directions to avoid traffic and intelligent robots that perform complex manufacturing, Artificial Intelligence is all around us.

Machine learning uses algorithms and statistical models to design AI systems which interpret and respond to data in a similar way as humans.

Theobroma Systems provides hardware and software capabilities to create products that support machine learning systems for various applications.
