AAEON’s VPC-5600S opens up new horizons for NVR technology

AAEON, an award-winning developer of network devices and embedded computers, launches the VPC-5600S, a network video recorder (NVR) with a possible eight PoE ports, each supported by their own LAN chips.

The VPC-5600S recently picked up coveted COMPUTEX d&i and Taiwan Excellence Awards, and AAEON network security division product manager Josh Chen has labelled it “the perfect surveillance system.” AAEON is currently the only company to offer NVRs featuring eight PoE ports with individual LAN chips. With this hardware specification and the device’s 7th Generation Intel® Core™ processor, users will receive the highest quality images from multiple sources without any danger of data loss. With an additional four USB3.0 ports and two LAN ports, the VPC-5600S can support up to 14 high-grade surveillance cameras. (more…)

AI Core – Artificial Intelligence On The Edge

The first embedded ultra-compact Artificial Intelligence processing card for on the edge computing

UP Bridge the Gap – a brand of AAEON Europe – is proud to launch AI Core: the first embedded ultra-compact Artificial Intelligence processing cards for edge computing.

AI Core is a mini-PCIe module powered by Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ 2 technology. This low-power module enhances industrial IoT edge devices with hardware accelerated deep learning and enhanced machine vision functionality. AAEON Technology is one of the first IPC manufacturers to address the growing need for Artificial Intelligence on the edge with dedicated hardware.

Most of the available IoT solutions are focused on connecting edge devices to the cloud and these deployments face challenges related to latency, network bandwidth, reliability and security. Experts in this field agree that not all the tasks and decision making processes can be addressed in cloud-only models. AI Core is the solution for cloud limitations by bringing AI performance and hardware acceleration not “at” but “ON” the edge of the Internet of Things.

AI Core is powered by an advanced vision processing unit: the Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ 2 VPU. With 512 MB onboard DDR memory this mini card module requires very little energy to enable local deep-learning and computing vision algorithms. (more…)

UP Squared maker board

The UP Squared maker board, developed by Aaeon, creates custom-built IoT applications. The advanced maker board has low power consumption and high performance specifications.

UP Squared supports a range of operating systems including Ubuntu, Android 7.1, and Windows 10 IOT Core, which gives access to Microsoft app templates and code editors. Aaeon has also partnered with Intel to produce the UP Squared Grove IoT development kit, which includes components to custom-build IoT applications, such as sensors, buttons and a screen.

Powered by Intel Atom E3900 series, Intel Pentium N4200, or Intel Celeron N3350 processors (formerly codenamed Apollo Lake), UP Squared boasts two, four and eight Gbyte of LPDDR4 memory and up to 128Gbyte of eMMC storage. The board also houses an Intel Gen9 GPU, which supports 4K codecs. Expansion is via a 40-pin GPIO, a 60-pin EXHAT connector, or through SATA3, PCIe, and M.2 ports. The board also features multiple USB ports and CSI, HDMI, DP, and eDP interfaces.
