IBASE and Hailo launch edge AI computing system
IBASE Technology Inc. has announced its partnership with leading AI chipmaker Hailo. IBASE and Hailo are launching the 11th Gen Intel Core U-Series-based (formerly Tiger Lake) ASB210-953-AI edge AI computing system, which is targeted at AIoT (Artificial Intelligence of Things) applications in multiple sectors, including smart cities, industry 4.0, and the automotive industry.
Integrated with the Hailo-8 M.2 AI acceleration module, the ASB210-953-AI provides unparalleled performance, with up to 26TOPS (tera-operations per second) and high-power efficiency. Measuring 180 by 150 by 72mm, the compact system comes with flexible expansion supporting high-speed 5G connectivity and three M.2 modules – B-Key, E-Key and M-Key (with the Hailo-8 AI module installed) – allowing customers to accelerate time to market.
“Our collaboration with Hailo enables us to offer customers edge AI inference systems with unprecedented performance and responsiveness,” says Albert Lee, Executive Vice President at IBASE.
“With a best-in-class AI processor packaged in a module, the Hailo-8 is compatible with NGFF M.2 form factor, as well as with M, B+M and A+E keys that can be perfectly adopted in our ASB210-953-AI platform to execute real-time deep neural network inferencing in a wide range of market applications.”
As Liran Bar, VP Business Development at Hailo explains: “We are excited to partner with a market leader like IBASE to bring the performance capabilities of their deep learning solutions to a new level and enable smarter AI products. We look forward to offering our reimagined AI processors to more embedded computing applications via IBASE solutions.”
IBASE will be presenting a live demo with the AI solution at the coming 2022 SPS Italia, Automate, and Embedded World exhibitions. All visitors are welcome to stop by the IBASE booth when they visit the shows.
