Asus subsidiary AAEON has launched an embedded Artificial Intelligence processing card for edge computing.
The AI Core is a mini-PCIe module powered by Intel's Movidius Myriad 2 2450 chip combined with Aaeon's UP Squared companion board for building embedded applications.
The low-power 51 x 30mm module can be used to add AI capabilities to industrial IoT edge devices with hardware accelerated deep learning and enhanced machine vision functionality.
The card includes 512 MB onboard DDR memory and the Myriad 2 gives developers immediate access to its advanced vision processing core, while allowing them to develop proprietary capabilities for differentiation.
The AI board can be used with the Aaeon's credit card sized UP Squared single board computer. This is aimed at different domains and products like Robotics, Drone, Machine Vision, Smart Home, Education, Digital Signage, Intelligent Cars and Internet Of Things via compatibility with Linux, Android, and all the Windows 10 distributions. The UP is powered by an Intel Atom x5 Quad-Core 1.44/1.92Ghz 64-bit SoC (Cherry Trail) and HD 400 graphics (H.264, HEVC decoding, VP8 is supported), with 1GB/2GB/4GB RAM, 16GB/32GB/64GB eMMC storage, 40-pin GPIO expansion, 6x USB 2.0, USB 3.0 OTG, Ethernet, HDMI, MIPI-CSI/DSI and hardware security.
The board is availble from Texim Europe Datasheet AI Core
