One of the new challenges arising with the use of edge, fog, and cloud architectures is the connection of components to each other and to the public cloud. An important element of developing a solution capturing all pieces is the IoT framework SUSiEte
At the field, or edge level, data is collected by industrial computers, e.g. by gateways, which process, filter, analyze and act on these data in real-time right at the device.
Edge, fog and cloud applications demand increasing computing power. The interfaces to sensors or machines often require non-standard solutions. Especially in smaller machines, space is limited or restricted in some dimension and need a special solution.
Today, the connection from the sensor device to the embedded cloud takes place via real-time data communication, on sensor and edge level - for example Industrial Ethernet or fieldbuses - and gateways , which provide the transformation of real time data into the informational area.

Kontron 3.5"-SBC-R39: New 3.5" single-board computer with ARM® Cortex®-A72/Cortex®-A53 and Rockchip RK3399(K)
Kontron's new 3.5" SBC offers high performance with low power consumption
Ismaning, November 3, 2021 - Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), launches the 3.5" SBC-R39, a compact 3.5" single-board computer for high-performance and low-power systems. The single-board computer is suitable for integration into (open source) embedded systems in the areas of entertainment, digital signage, facial recognition, smart retail, smart classroom, smart office and industry.
The 3.5" SBC-R39 is built on a Rockchip RK3399(K) processor with ARM® big.LITTLE microarchitecture. This includes two processors embedded in a single, fully integrated silicon chip. The LITTLE cluster consists of a quad-core Cortex® A53 processor, which is typically used to perform routine tasks at low power consumption. The large cluster is a dual-core Cortex®-A72 processor, which handles compute-intensive high-performance tasks. Thanks to this clever architecture, the 3.5" SBC-R39 can dynamically assign tasks to the respective processor - according to the performance requirement - and fulfills two in principle contradictory requirements: high performance and energy-efficient computing power.
With the high-end Mali-T864 GPU from ARM® integrated into the processor, the 3.5" SBC-R39 also enables high-performance 4K UHD video decoding and 4K UHD video playback at up to 60 frames per second via DisplayPort and HDMI 2.0 connectors. Additionally, display panels can be connected via an integrated eDP interface.
