ADLINK Technology (Taiwan) - The new Matrix series combines CPU and GPU computing to enhance time to decision and performance at the edge.
ADLINK Technology, a global leader in edge computing, announced the release of its next generation of Matrix embedded computers designed to enhance responsiveness and durability of edge AI and computing applications. Designed for enhanced performance, the next generation Matrix series offers innovation and ruggedness to enable timely data-driven decision making at the edge, delivering efficiency, productivity, and security enhancement across industries.
The next generation Matrix series brings system responsiveness to the next level with its heterogeneous computing architecture. The new Matrix series combines CPU computing based on 9th Gen Intel® Xeon® and Core™ processors and GPU computing from NVIDIA® Quadro® embedded GPUs, enabling it to accelerate compute-intensive, high-resolution medical imaging for more rapid and accurate diagnosis. In addition, these boxes can be used to detect and classify product defects for quality assurance, deploy facial recognition for access control, track movement of workers for hazard prevention and control, and effectively perform other edge AI and computing applications.
Additional features include precise motion control, interface with protocol-based devices, and other application-specific, hardware-accelerated processing functions. Designed with harsh edge environments in mind, the next generation Matrix series is housed in a fanless, compact, rugged, stainless steel chassis with multiple expansion slots on select models. Furthermore, the next generation Matrix series includes a comprehensive I/O set to collect sensor measurements and allow data-driven actions to be taken in a timely manner.
The new Matrix series comprise of the models below:
- MVP-5100-MXM: Integrated fanless embedded computers featuring Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processors and embedded GPU for industrial AI applications
- MVP-6100-MXM: Expandable fanless embedded computers featuring Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3 processors and embedded GPU for industrial AI applications
- MXE-5600: Fanless embedded computers featuring 9th Gen Intel® Xeon® and Core™ processors with low power consumption for edge computing applications
- MXC-6600: Expandable fanless embedded computers featuring 9th Gen Intel® Xeon® and Core™ processors with low power consumption for edge computing applications
“Edge AI and computing applications require massive amounts of memory, parallel computing, and mixed-precision computation. The release of our new next generation Matrix series cost-effectively delivers edge computing solutions to meet the demands of these speed and accuracy requirements,” commented Elizabeth Campbell, General Manager of ADLINK Technology.
