Embedded AI platform offers high-performance edge solution
Embedded systems developer MicroSys Electronics has announced a partnership with AI chipmaker Hailo to launch an embedded platform hosting up to five integrated Hailo-8 AI accelerator modules.

The miriac AIP-LX2160A edge server-grade AI solution enables high-performance and scalable AI inference capabilities at the edge. The new, application-ready AI platform, says the company, offers industries a high bandwidth and power-efficient solution at the edge, benefiting a wide range of applications in Industry 4.0, automotive, heavy machinery, and more.

Powered by the NXP QorIQ Layerscape LX2160A high-throughput processor technology, the miriac AIP-LX2160A can integrate multiple advanced Hailo-8 AI accelerators and offers processing performance and deep learning capabilities of up to 130 tera-operations per second (TOPS). The combined solution is offered as delivering exceptional AI computing performance across multiple standard NN benchmarks, including over 6000 Frames Per Second (FPS) on Resnet-50, over 5000 FPS on Mobilenet-V1 SSD and close to 1000 FPS on YOLOv5m.

The embedded platform, says the company, give customers the benefit of highly efficient AI implemented into their connected edge appliances for situational awareness and predictive maintenance analytics.

"Our strategic partnership with Hailo is an important milestone, helping our customers reap the enormous benefits of AI and neural networks," says Ina Sophia Schindler, Managing Director at MicroSys Electronics. "Hailo's AI processor allows edge devices to run full-scale deep learning applications more efficiently, effectively, and sustainably while significantly lowering costs. In combination with our NXP processor-based platforms, our customers get one of the most powerful AI solutions that can be developed for edge applications."

Typical markets for the application-ready bundle include low-power IIoT and Industry 4.0 edge servers for predictive maintenance, collaborative robotics, video surveillance servers in infrastructures with distributed cameras, communication servers for autonomous vehicles in logistics and agriculture, and heavy equipment for construction, as well as edge servers in trains where multiple GigE Vision camera streams are analyzed with AI for increased safety and security.

The new application-ready AI starter kit comes complete with everything needed for evaluation and development, including a carrier board, cable set and cooling solution. Developers will also have access to MicroSys'
