Overview

The Portenta H7 Lite Connected is designed to provide the computational power of the Portenta H7 for AI applications and low-latency control solutions, with a module that is made more cost-effective by removing the high-resolution video interface feature.

It fills the gap between the full H7 and the H7 Lite versions by integrating wireless connectivity, adding yet another option for Arduino Pro clients to build the perfect solution with the right combination of performance and simplicity.

The Portenta H7 Lite Connected simultaneously runs high-level code and real-time tasks thanks to its two processors. For example, it can execute Arduino-compiled and MicroPython code at the same time, and have the two cores communicate via a Remote Procedure Call mechanism that allows calling functions on the other processor seamlessly for real multitasking. Your machine learning algorithms can now run simultaneously alongside low latency sensor/actuator interaction.
 

Key benefits include:

  • Dual Core - Two best-in-class processors in one, running parallel tasks
  • AI on the edge - So powerful it can run AI state machines
  • Onboard wireless module - Simultaneously manage WiFi and Bluetooth® connectivity
  • High-level programming language support (Micropython)
  • Security - Onboard secure element for certificates storage and management

The Portenta H7 Lite Connected offers twofold functionality: it can run either like any other embedded microcontroller board, or as the main processor of an embedded computer. 

For example, use the Portenta Vision Shield to transform your H7 Lite Connected into an industrial camera capable of performing real-time machine learning algorithms on live video feeds. As the H7 Lite Connected can easily run processes created with TensorFlow™ Lite, you could have one of the cores computing a computer vision algorithm on the fly, while the other carries out low-level operations like controlling a motor or acting as a user interface. 

Portenta is the go-to family when performance is key, and the H7 Lite Connected is no exception. We can already envision it as part of a wide range of solutions, including: 

  • High-end industrial machinery
  • Laboratory equipment
  • Computer vision
  • PLCs
  • Robotics controllers
  • Mission-critical devices
  • High-speed booting computation (ms)


Two Parallel Cores

The Portenta H7 Lite Connected’s main processor is the STM32H747 dual core including a Cortex® M7 running at 480 MHz and a Cortex® M4 running at 240 MHz. The two cores communicate via a Remote Procedure Call mechanism that allows calling functions on the other processor seamlessly. Both processors share all the in-chip peripherals and can run: 

  • Arduino sketches on top of the Arm® Mbed™ OS
  • Native Mbed™ applications
  • MicroPython / JavaScript via an interpreter
  • TensorFlow™ Lite


A New Standard for Pinouts

The Portenta family adds two 80-pin high-density connectors at the bottom of the module. This ensures scalability for a wide range of applications: simply upgrade your Portenta to the one suiting your needs.


USB-C Multipurpose Connector

The module’s programming connector is a USB-C port that can also be used for power, as a USB Hub, or to deliver power to OTG connected devices.
