Kontron is launching edge AI applications together with AI chip manufacturer Hailo. Included is a single board computer as well as an industrial box PC. They can be used to easily realize AI projects.

Augsburg-based embedded company Kontron is bringing Hailo's AI expertise in-house. With the technology partnership, Kontron wants to offer developers AI applications for the edge – for example, for the areas of Industry 4.0, smart cities or smart retail. Hailo's 8-AI series processor is to be used first and foremost in Edge devices. With a performance of 26 Tera operations per second (TOPS), it requires only 2.5 W.

First products with Hailo chipset

Kontron has already equipped first products with the Hailo chip: the 2.5-inch single board computer »pITX-iMX8M-AI-H8« on arm basis as well as the x86-based box PC »KBox A-150-WKL-AI-H8«.

Both products are equipped with Core processors from Intel and i.MX8M CPUs from NXP, respectively, and now they get additional computing power for AI applications with the Hailo chip. In addition to pre-installed drivers and a BSP, the complete software toolchain is available on Hailo's »Developer Zone« website. It includes numerous pre-trained neural networks (»Model Zoo«), a bit-accurate simulator, and a performance tool – the Hailo Dataflow Compiler. Also available is the »Tappas« high-performance application toolkit. It enables the implementation of AI applications for fast time-to-market.

»The partnership includes jointly developing AI-enabled board-level products and custom solutions on a project basis,« said Christoph Neumann, VP Technology at Kontron Group. »In addition, we offer comprehensive AI project services, including consulting and integration of software applications, as well as neural network training by our own Data Scientists.«

Hailo will present a live AI demo as a co-exhibitor with Kontron at SPS 2021 from November 23rd to 25th. It can be seen at Kontron's booth in Hall 7, Booth 193.
