Where is my (missing) NPU hardware (not on the VIM4 I ordered)

Which system do you use? Android, Ubuntu, OOWOW or others?


Which version of system do you use? Khadas official images, self built images, or others?


Please describe your issue below:

Recently purchased a VIM4. There is no NPU on my unit. I’ve asked Khadas about this on their page(s) and have received zero response. So do you guys know how I can further address this hardware? I do a lot of experimentation with GPU’s, esp on Jetson platforms and was really looking forward to experimenting with this (expensive) VIM4 unit

Hello @skypuppy can you share the details of your order number ?
we can check if you have ordered the right device.

Pretty sure I got it though Amazon. What would be involved in swapping out the CPU? Or is it soldered in? It’s under the heatsink so I can’t tell.

@skypuppy the NPU is internally present on a part the onboard SoC, not a seperate chip.

Thanks, oh-electric-one!
Still no word on an NPU, but it may not matter anyway as I assume the NPU isn’t software compatible with an AMD or nVidia unit. (I’m not interested in learning yet another software library. Two are already more than enough!)
