The new Kontron’s KBox PC based on an Intel Atom® x7-E3950 processor has been designed to be integrated directly into existing X86 landscapes enabling own application possibilities around Machine Learning and AI at the Intelligent Edge. These new capabilities include image and video data processing for visual inspection, quality assurance, predictive maintenance, sorting or object recognition, as a stand-alone device or as a gateway.
The integrated Google Coral Edge TPU (Tensor Processing Acceleration Unit), increases the speed significantly, supports small and low power applications and requires only one watt for two TOPS. The gateway solution based on the KBOX A-203 system networks different end devices and guarantees seamless transmission to a higher-lever infrastructure. The KBOX also features many interfaces such as Two front USB 3.0 ports, connections for displays, two GB Ethernet and an industrial 24 VDC power input.
The AI platform runs on Debian Linux and is compatible with TensorFlow Lite. Users can thus benefit from the wide range of applications offered by Google-AI right from the start.
