Premio adds new edge AI processor to its portfolio for industrial computers

Rugged edge and embedded computing tech provider Premio Inc. has announced its new Hailo-8 AI accelerator modules for its line of industrial computers, the RCO series.

The Hailo-8 processor is an edge AI accelerator that provides up to 26 tera operations per second (TOPS) and uses a typical power consumption of less than 2.5 watts per module.

The company says edge AI deployments can integrate a low power Hailo-8 module with any Premio x86 industrial-grade RCO-1000, RCO-3000, or RCO-6000 series computer to process inference analysis and object detection workloads in real time.

Speaking about the new processor, Dustin Seetoo, Premio’s product marketing director, says: “Premio continues to recognize the crucial role that AI is playing at the edge. By integrating HAILO’s M.2 accelerators to empower our computers, we give system integrators a powerful choice in their deployments – bringing reduced costs, thermal and power constraints, and a faster time to market.”

Hailo-8 M.2 AI accelerators are available in the RCO series directly on board or through Premio’s EDGEBoost I/O modules that feature a M.2 carrier board.

With EDGEBoost I/O modules, Premio says its customers may utilize either a M.2 M-key in PCIe x4 or B-key in a PCIe x2 to allow for maximum throughput. HAILO Supported x86 rugged computers RCO-1000-EHL.

EDGEBoost I/O modules aim to provide flexible customization to match I/O requirements within a passively cooled, ruggedized design. With EDGEBoost I/O modules, system integrators can linearly scale the number of AI accelerators in compatible Premio computers, increasing total TOPs and AI inference acceleration at the rugged edge, according to the company.

“Premio is joining a growing number of manufacturers across industries who understand how crucial it is to integrate AI capabilities into their edge platforms,” adds Orr Danon, CEO of Hailo.

“Our Hailo-8 M.2 modules empower companies like Premio to create new powerful, cost-efficient, innovative AI-based products with a short time-to-market – while staying within the systems’ thermal constraints. The high efficiency and top performance of Hailo’s modules enable data center-class AI capabilities on the edge.”

Premio’s RCO series ruggedized industrial computers range from fanless mini to high performance and offer a range of purpose-built features and modular options with EDGEBoost technologies.
