Intelligent edge computing appliances frequently demand AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology. When it comes to applications that require intelligent video analysis operating at the edge, having access to an AI accelerator card that can offer offload CPU loading and the instant ability to plug into intelligent transport systems (ITS), smart cities, smart retail, and Industry 4.0 applications to improve performance, is ideal for these compute-intensive operations.
On this episode, the Insiders ponder the future of embedded engineering in light of Arm’s release of its Total Solutions for IoT. How far along in the development process can engineers get virtually, before they even have silicon in their hands?
The importance of security in embedded designs can never be stressed enough. With the expanding cybersecurity threat landscape and lack of security professionals in the workforce, everyday engineers need to be able to implement hardware root-of-trust-grade security in a robust but simplified manner.
On this episode of Embedded Insiders, Brandon and Rich are addressing the increasingly political aspect of the semiconductor supply chain issues running rampant across the globe, and the danger of those issues reaching all the way up to the semiconductor manufacturing equipment itself.
Ruggedized systems require high-bandwidth processing.
On this episode of Embedded Insiders, Brandon and Rich recap a recent visit to DesignCon 2022, where Brandon highlights one of the embedded engineering industry’s rising stars, the Compute Express Link open standard.
Artificial intelligence is the driving force behind so many applications today. From the developers’ perspective, it’s almost a given that AI will play some role in the end application. One such application where AI is making a lot of inroads is public safety and security. Such security is being utilized in everything from airports and railways stations to hospitals and manufacturing facilities. And it can scale from a single room to a large campus or even a city.
New and evolving hardware technologies are making real-time AI inferencing at the edge a reality. These include fluid edge-to-cloud connectivity, expansive networking capabilities, and sustained computational performance at efficient power consumption levels, all of which are designed into Premio’s RCO-6000-CFL AI Edge Inference Computer.
On this episode of the Embedded Insiders, Brandon and Rich review the recent Applied Power Electronics Conference, or APEC, as a proxy for how the industry works post-pandemic and the reality of supply chain demand.
Every type of edge AI has three hard and fast technical requirements: low power, small form factor, and high performance. Of course, what constitutes “small,” “power efficient,” or “high performance” varies by use case and can describe everything from small microcontrollers to edge servers, but usually you must sacrifice at least one to get the others.
However, one solution that can address everything from edge clouds to endpoints without sacrifice is the FPGA.
Market research estimates the natural language processing market will grow from $20.98 billion in 2021 to more than $127 billion in 2028. Similarly, the AI vision market is expected to grow to $144.46 billion from $7.04 billion in 2020.
Clearly, artificial sensory perception is on the rise.
On this episode of the Embedded Insiders, Brandon and Rich discuss the impact of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on the electronics industry.
As the world’s demand for intelligence increases, real-time edge computing no longer refers simply to data processing. Increasingly, it implies AI.
In applications like traffic monitoring, defect/quality inspection, people counting, medical imaging, or autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), the demand for edge AI also means requirements for low latency, minimal power consumption, and sufficient thermal dissipation – all of course, at the highest performance levels possible.
Logistics automation is the straightforward act of applying industry standards to the operation of a factory or warehouse to simplify its operation and organize it in ways that are not possible through more manual methods.
Smart retail refers to the concept of adding “intelligence” to traditional shopping methods. The global pandemic has expedited the smart retail process, as it allows the consumer to complete a transaction with little to no human interaction if desired.
On this episode, Brandon and Rich review highlights from Smart Manufacturing Day, including a debate on what Industry 5.0 truly means, and discuss the potential peril of code-heavy software-defined factories and vehicles.
In the world of manufacturing for industrial and rugged applications, including robotics, and artificial intelligence, the Made in America moniker brings a lot of cache.
In operating rooms, electronic medical devices are indispensable to healthcare diagnostics, real-time patient monitoring, and surgical visualization. But as crucial as these systems are, they are also potentially quite dangerous. If they aren’t dust-proof, water-tight, protected against power failure, and immune to electromagnetic interference, they present a range of dangers from electric shock to hosting bacteria.
To ensure healthcare workers can continue to access the patient data and productivity technology they need in the safest, most, reliable, and most hygienic manner possible, Wincomm has released the WMP-24M-PIS, a 23.8” LCD screen medical panel PC based on 10th generation Intel® Core® processor technology.
The more data that’s generated, the more that needs to be stored. The more data that needs to be stored, the more bandwidth and capacity required from storage solutions.
In consumer electronics and the data center, technology roadmaps are in place to help offset the exponential demand for data acquisition and storage. But what about industrial computing?
The NVIDIA/Arm transaction may have fallen through, but that isn’t the only momentous merger and acquisition that’s been on the table in the embedded technology space.
