Milk-V Duo S is A SOPHON SG2000 Based SBC with Enhanced Multimedia and Connectivity Features


The Milk-V Duo S is another compact SBC powered by the SOPHON SG2000 Dual-Core RV64 Processor. The SOPHON SG2000 is a hybrid SOC With Dual C906 RV64 Cores and an ARM Cortex-A53 Core. Additionally, the board features an 8051-based 6KB MCU and a 0.5 TOPs (Int8) TPU similar to the Milk-V Duo launched in June 2023. This new Duo S variant steps up with 512MB DDR3 RAM and 8GB eMMC for storage.

Milk-V Duo S, a compact SBC with SOPHON SG2000, dual RV64 cores, ARM Cortex-A53, 8051 MCU, 0.5 TOPs TPU, 512MB RAM, and 8GB eMMC.

The board includes features like 100Mbps Ethernet, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, microSD, and SPI connectivity, on top of that the board has a 5M,30FPS Image Signal Processor(ISP) for quality imaging and video recording at 30FPS. Continuing on it has 2x MIPI CSI lanes, and 1x MIPI DSI 4-lane ports for multimedia, plus hardware H.264/H.265 encoding for video applications, and audio support via GPIO. all these features come in a compact 43x43mm board with pre-soldered headers for ease of use.

We are not finished with the feature as this device has 39x GPIOs, USB-C power input, 3.3V/2A output with low battery detection, USB 2.0 Type-A (Host mode), and an optional PoE HAT for expanded connectivity.

Milk-V also talks about a camera module that is compatible with the Duo series and provides an affordable imaging solution with its GALAXYCORE GC2083 CMOS sensor. This hardware version 1.1 features a 1/3 inch sensor with 1920×1080 resolution, RAW 10bit/8bit support, and up to 30fps video capture. Which makes it perfect for the onboard Image Signa Processor.
