Premio unveils edge AI-focused carrier boards for rugged industrial computers
Premio Inc, a rugged edge and embedded computing tech company, has released two new carrier board modules at Embedded World 2023 in Nuremberg, Germany.
These modules support edge AI inference, high-speed NVMe storage and 5G connectivity for industrial computers.
Premio says the two new EDGEBoost I/O modules, the EBIO-2M2BK and EBIO-M2MK, are designed to help support modular hardware designs with edge AI acceleration technologies.
“As the demand for Edge AI grows, our EDGEBoost I/O carrier boards offer a modular solution to scale new m.2 AI accelerators with ultimate reliability in the harshest edge-level deployments,” says Dustin Seetoo, the product marketing director at Premio.
According to Premio, its EDGEBoost I/O modules provide a plug-and-play solution for peripheral connectivity, allowing system integrators and OEMs to incorporate real-time inference and analysis into edge AI processing applications. These applications include computer and machine vision, security and surveillance, industrial automation, intelligent transportation, Smart City and Smart Agriculture.
The EBIO-2M2BK carrier board is compatible with Premio industrial computers, utilizing PCIe protocols for fast communication. Enhanced edge AI capabilities are enabled with up to x4 Hailo-8 AI processors, offering 104 TOPS (trillion operations per second) performance and low TDP (thermal design power) for real-time inference operations and object detection, the company says.
“By supporting up to x4 m.2 Hailo-8 AI processors and NVMe storage options, Premio is first-to-market a modular and scalable solution for m.2 accelerators in a rugged design,” explains Seetoo.
Meanwhile, the company says the EBIO-M2MK carrier board has a modular design similar to the EBIO-2M2BK but offers increased performance bandwidths for AI and NVMe modules. It is ideal for edge workloads that require real-time performance for edge AI inference and high-speed NVMe storage.
In addition, Premio’s EDGEBoost I/O modules provide various options for connecting IoT sensors.
“Premio EDGEBoost I/O carrier boards provide partners with an innovative approach to match mission-critical I/O requirements with ease and scale,” adds Seetoo.
Earlier this month, Premio rolled out its new surveillance-oriented rugged network video recorder (NVR). According to Premio, it provides a reliable and efficient solution for harsh environments with extreme temperatures and shocks/vibrations.
