MicroSys Electronics announced a partnership with AI chipmaker Hailo to launch its miriac AIP-LX2160A embedded platform, hosting up to 5 integrated Hailo-8™ AI accelerator modules. The edge server-grade AI solution delivers high-performance and scalable AI inference capabilities at the edge and offers high bandwidth and power-efficiency for such applications as Industry 4.0, automotive, heavy machinery.
Powered by the NXP® QorIQ® Layerscape LX2160A high-throughput processor technology, the miriac AIP-LX2160A can integrate multiple advanced Hailo-8™ AI accelerators for what the company claims is best-in-class processing performance and deep learning capabilities of up to 130 tera-operations per second (TOPS). The combined solution delivers 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 automotive grade Hailo-8 provides up to 26 tera-operations per second (TOPS) at a typical power consumption of 2.5 W. The embedded platform gives customers the benefit of highly efficient AI implemented into their connected edge appliances for situational awareness and predictive maintenance analytics.
Typical markets for this new 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 includes everything necessary for evaluation and development: a carrier board, cable set and cooling solution. Developers will also have access to MicroSys’s comprehensive AI toolchain and developer tools offered in Hailo’s developer zone. For more information visit: miriac®-AIP-LX2160A product page
