City of Industry, Calif., January 31st, 2021 – Axiomtek, a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative and reliable high performance industrial computer products, is pleased to announce its partnership with leading AI chipmaker Hailo to launch the RSC100, a state-of-the-art ARM-based edge AI computer (also named Plato). The RSC100 supports the Hailo-8™ edge AI processor, the latter of which features up to 26 TOPS for efficiently running full-scale deep learning applications intelligently and sustainably. The partnership with Hailo provides customers with a diverse array of cutting-edge AI solutions across a wide range of intelligent market segments including smart city, retail and transportation.
The RSC100 (Plato) is versatile. It is equipped with flexible storage, including a 16GB eMMC onboard, an M.2 Key M 2280 SATA SSD slot with PCIe x4 NVMe interface and a Micro SD slot to maximize performance, density, and throughput for critical workloads. The system’s dual GbE ports enable IP cameras and LiDAR connectivity with greater bandwidth for video analytics. Furthermore, the RSC100 (Plato) has two full-size PCIe Mini Card slots, a SIM slot, and an M.2 Key B 3052 slot for unrivaled expandability. These slots facilitate peripheral modules such as Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, 5G/4G/LTE, and additional storage for enhanced functionality.
The RSC100 (Plato) offers rich I/O interfaces including one HDMI 2.0 port with support of 4K2K, dual GbE LAN ports, dual RS-232/422/485 ports, dual CANbus ports, dual USB 2.0 ports, 8-CH DIO, one console port, and seven SMA-type antenna connectors for WLAN and 5G/LTE usage. Moreover, the rugged edge AI system is designed with OVP, OCP as well as power protection. It can also withstand vibrations of up to 3 Grms and temperatures between -20°C to +70°C, making it ideal for compute-intensive AI applications at the edge. The RSC100 (Plato) also supports the Linux operating system.
Due to its innovative architecture, the Hailo-8™ enables edge devices to effortlessly run sophisticated Deep Learning applications that previously could only be computed in the cloud. Hailo-8's advanced structure translates into unprecedented performance, lower power, and minimal latency, with enhanced privacy and reliability for smart devices operating at the edge.
“Hailo specializes in developing high-performance AI processors for edge devices. The powerful yet affordable RSC100 (Plato) is our first fanless edge AI computing system that adopts the Hailo-8™,” says Ken Pan, the product manager of the Artificial Intelligence Division at Axiomtek. “The RSC100 (Plato) provides system developers with highly efficient implementations of innovative AI solutions at reduced time-to-market and engineering costs. Empowered by its advanced AI performance, the RSC100 (Plato) is ideal for smart city applications, including smart surveillance, smart factory, smart agriculture, and smart transportation.”
“More and more enterprises are seeking to deploy smart AI edge technologies, and this joint solution will surely serve as a competitive advantage for them,” says Liran Bar, VP of Business Development of Hailo. “We look forward to working with an industry giant like Axiomtek to usher in more AI-powered smart city applications. The RSC100 (Plato) will serve as a game changer in the edge AI space.”
