DFI will showcase its latest compact and fan-less industrial PCs with AI acceleration modules at embedded world 2024.

The EC70A-ADP is designed with rich I/O and wide temperature support, enabling diverse deployment for AMRs and AGVs. EC700-ADN, equipped with the Hailo-8 module, offers advanced AI computing capabilities for industrial automation applications.

According to a recent market research report by Emergen Research, the global embedded systems market size is expected to reach $169.4 billion by 2032. This growth is primarily driven by the increasing adoption of AIoT devices and automation technologies across various sectors, including manufacturing, healthcare, and logistics.

As businesses continue to prioritise efficiency and data-driven decision-making, DFI's Box PCs arrive amidst this burgeoning trend in embedded computing.

The DFI EC70A-ADP stands out as an ultra-compact, fan-less industrial computer powered by the 12th Gen Intel Core Alder Lake-P Processor. It boasts a sleek and silent design suitable for space-constrained or noise-sensitive environments. With 8GB of onboard memory and an additional SO-DIMM DDR4 slot, the EC70A-ADP offers flexible memory options. Its dual display support allows for enhanced visualisation, while compatibility with 5G-NR modules ensures future-proof connectivity. The EC70A-ADP also delivers unparalleled robustness and reliability with a wide operating temperature of –20°C to 60°C, making it ideal for deployment in AGVs, AMRs, or material logistics systems.

DFI’s EC700-ADN is also tailored for space and noise-sensitive environments by combining robust performance with a slim form factor. However, what sets the EC700-ADN apart is its compatibility with the Hailo-8 module, offering unparalleled AI computing capabilities. Its advanced analytics algorithms are capable of processing high-resolution and high-frame-rate videos, resulting in superior accuracy in detecting small and fast-moving objects. Moreover, it significantly reduces false alerts and generates comprehensive metadata, thereby enhancing operational efficiency.

EC700-ADN's built-in OOB functionality facilitates remote diagnostics and system reboots for malfunctioning systems, even when the device is turned off or the OS has crashed. This enables remote troubleshooting and streamlines issue resolution for optimised operations optimisation. Featuring LPDDR5 & eMMC support, and up to Quad Display Support via VGA/HDMI/USB-C, the EC700-ADN emerges as the top choice for AIoT, factory automation, and robotics applications.
