Categories Edge Computing News  |  Hardware

Seco, a provider of IoT and AI solutions, has unveiled Callisto, a COM Express Type 6 module featuring the 13th Gen Intel core processor family. Seco could access the design information and silicon processor through the Intel Early Access Program. The company designed Callisto to provide AI processing performance for various applications, including industrial automation, robotics, high-performance computing and edge computing.

According to the company, the Seco Callisto provides high performance for complex AI workloads using the embedded Intel processor. The processor enhancements over the previous generation include the Intel DL Boost, which speeds up AI inference workloads, and the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit for cross-architecture DL inference. It also includes on-processor graphics execution units for parallel AI processing. The processor design allows it to achieve optimal performance and power consumption through a hybrid architecture.

“Callisto is a further step forward for our high-end COM Express modules linecard. Intensive video processing and AI-based analytics are widespread as the backbone of many industrial applications,” said Davide Catani, the chief technology officer of Seco S.p.A. “With Callisto, our customers will quickly deploy such an approach, even in challenging environmental conditions, like that machinery or autonomous equipment are requiring.”

Using the embedded Intel Iris Xe graphics card, the company says the Callisto module can handle intense video processing and AI-based analytics on edge devices. It supports high-quality visuals on up to four 4K displays simultaneously, using three DDI interfaces, one VGA port and one eDP interface. The module also can support a single 8K display in addition to the four concurrent 4K displays. The PCIe 5.0 interface allows for processing up to 48 simultaneous 1080p streams.

The Seco Callisto’s thermal design power options range from 15W and 45W for use in both industrial and commercial temperature ranges. To support industrial-grade operations, the module offers a variety of interface options, including two USB 4.0, four USB 3.2, eight USB 2.0 host ports, eight PCIe lanes and several serial interfaces. It also has a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet interface with an Intel i225 GbE controller for networking purposes.

Seco will showcase the Callisto COM Express Type 6 module at embedded world 2023, in Nuremberg, Germany, from March 14 to 16.
