The new compact Kontron Industrial AI platform AI-pITX-100-GC consists of an M.2 module with the Google Coral accelerator chip for the software ecosystem TensorFlow Lite on a 2.5" pITX single board computer from Kontron with an NXP i.MX8M processor.
The Google Coral TPU (Tensor Processing Acceleration Unit) supports small and low power applications and provides up to 4TOPS (trillion operations per second) for higher speed image and video data processing. Compared to an application with simple USB-cameras without TPU at approx. 6 frames/s, the TPU accelerates to a speed of 30 frames/s, therefore five times faster.
All Google TensorFlow Lite applications and pre-trained models can be downloaded free of charge from Google and enable rapid development of own neural networks with Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning and Deep Learning applications - and significantly reduce time-to-market.
The platform is suitable for use in harsh environments with extended temperatures ranging from -40° to + 85° C and supports Yocto Linux with the latest kernel.
Furthermore, the solution can be flexibly customized to the respective application requirements.
