Premio’s in-vehicle edge systems add 10th-gen Intel chips, railway certified

Premio, a designer and manufacturer of systems for edge and cloud, released new in-vehicle systems that include Intel’s Comet Lake S and Xeon W processors. The new computers in the ACO-6000 series are expected to help power rolling stock in the railway industry, among other scenarios, Premio says.

In the railway industry, “rolling stock” refers to locomotives, freight and passenger cars, and other vehicles that use steel wheels on railroad tracks. Premio says the ACO-6000-CML is certified for use in rolling stock and railway deployments.

“Designing computers for railways poses some unique challenges, such as power supply fluctuations, constant vibrations, extremes in operating temperatures, and even electromagnetic protection in railway infrastructure,” Dustin Seetoo, product marketing director for Premio said. “We always validate our products under strict guidelines to address safety and reliability concerns for systems used on railways and the EN 50155 certification puts our design to the test,” he added.

Premio’s says the industrial-grade fanless design ensures better reliability in wider temperatures (ranging from -25C to 70C), wider input voltages (from 9-48VDC / 48-110VDC), and offers shock resistance of up to 50G and vibration resistance (5GRMS).

System integrators and end-users can also use the CAN Bus chip embedded on the motherboard which allows the computer to leverage vehicle telematics data and provide real-time analytics for intelligent transportation systems, fleet management, process analytics, and system optimization. Premio says it includes a PC/Car mode setting that allows programmable power ignition management for safe shutdown within in-vehicle designs.

The company notes that expandability is another requirement for modern edge workloads; the ACO-6000-CML uses Premio’s I/O bracket for modular I/O daughterboards and supports up to 16 additional LAN and PoE in wired RJ45/M12 connectors, 16 USB ports, four 10GbE connectors, and a 5G-ready module for low-latency wireless connectivity at the edge.

“New demands for automation and real-time processing at the edge require even more I/O connectivity to consolidate analog and digital workloads,” Seetoo said. “The ACO-6000 Series uses a modular approach that creates a key advantage for system integrators, increasing flexibility for them to match exact I/O with their edge-level deployments to help them win projects.”

As previously noted, the ACO-6000-CML AI Edge Inference Computer luses Intel 10th Generation CML S Processors and W480E Chipset support. Premio says a key feature of the new technology is the ability to use Intel Xeon processors in a fanless system. The Xeon W-1290TE is a 35W processor with 10 cores for multitasking and supports error correction code (ECC) memory for data redundancy in mission-critical applications.
