Advantech, a leading provider of AIoT platforms and services, today announced its participation at Embedded World 2024, a trade show taking place in Nuremberg April 9-11, 2024. Visitors will find Advantech’s 160 m2 booth in Hall 3, Booth 339, where the company’s comprehensive portfolio based on different hardware architectures (x86/ARM) and dedicated software services will be on display, fully tailored for different emerging markets such as EV charging and AI-integrated robotics.

A number of live demonstrations – essentially proof-of-concept system demonstrations – will present Advantech’s industry-leading scalable industrial Box PCs for end-to-end Edge AI solutions. This includes the AIR-150 system, featuring Advantech’s first integrated HAILO AI acceleration module and based on Intel® 13th Core i5/i3 processors, targeting e.g. AI-based access control applications. Advantech’s AIR-530, a Box solution based on NVIDIA’s IGX platform, will also be on display. It provides 200GbE Ethernet bandwidth and 32 TFLOPS AI computing power, while the compact and high-performance AI Box AIR-030 based on NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Orin™ delivers powerful AI inferencing capabilities. These systems are ideal for energy-efficient autonomous machines and feature versatile I/O options including CANBus for motion control, LAN and optional PoE for camera input, and DI/O for sensor control. All industrial Box PCs are globally certified, meet industrial standards and come with an industrial roadmap guaranteeing availability for a minimum of 5 to 10 years.

Live AI demonstrations will feature Intel’s new ARC A380E chipset. The integration of the EAI-3101 GPU with Advantech’s Intel-based industrial motherboard AIMB-278, which boasts advanced computer vision capabilities, will demonstrate the implementation of AI for age and mood detection. Potential applications include gaming, surveillance, autonomous vehicles and medical, to name a few.

The company will also shine a spotlight on a number of individual high-performance products demonstrating all available board form factors such as Computer-on-Modules (COMs), Single-Board-Computers (SBCs) and Motherboards. One standout example is the COMe module SOM-5885, which features the latest Intel® 14th Gen Core™ Ultra Processor with up to 14 cores and an integrated ARC GPU.

Two new SBCs, the MIO-5154 and MIO-2364, both powered by the latest Intel® Atom® x7000E Series will be presented as well. The 3.5” MIO-5154 caters to various retail applications including self-checkout and smart vending, medical applications like hemodialysis, ventilators and In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD), as well as factory automation tasks encompassing HMI, robotic arms and AGV/AMR systems. Meanwhile, the space-saving 2.5” MIO-2364 offers an optimal solution for medical automation, HMI interfaces, sensors and gateway deployment, AI boxes and smart camera setups.

Also adding to the SBC-family is the 2.5” RSB-3810, with 8-watt power efficiency  that adopts MediaTek’s flagship chipset Genio 1200 and is optimized for IoT applications at the edge, including robotics and industrial IoT.

Advantech will also introduce OSM modules based on Qualcomm and NXP technology, specifically optimized for low-power applications and for products requiring compliance with 0.8W EU Standby power regulations.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to get close to Advantech’s brand-new Qualcomm SoC board-based portfolio, marking the dawn of a new era of Edge AI applications.

Among the innovations will be the brand-new Flash Memory card SQF 930L in E1.S form factor supporting PCIe GEN4, designed to be hot pluggable and ideal for Hyperscale Solutions

All these versatile building blocks cater to solutions targeting diverse vertical markets including such as EV charging and AI-integrated robotics

Advantech will prominently highlight its rich software and service offerings which strive to meet industrial computing needs comprehensively, with systems like Microsoft Windows IoT and ARM, as well as Ubuntu, along with BIOS modification services, Linux Yocto and QNX support, and BSP maintenance service.
