Axiomtek - a world-renowned leader relentlessly devoted in the research, development, and manufacturing of innovative and reliable industrial computer products of high efficiency - 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 ARM-based RSC100 (Plato) supports the Hailo-8 edge AI processor, the latter of which features up to 26 TOPS for running deep learning applications at full scale efficiently, intelligently, and sustainably. The partnership with Hailo offers customers a new level of AI solutions across a wide range of market segments such as smart city, smart retail, industry 4.0, and smart transportation.

"Hailo has gained a lot of experience in developing high-performance AI processors suitable for edge devices. The powerful yet affordable RSC100 (Plato) is our first fanless edge AI computing system that adopts the Hailo-8. The RSC100 (Plato) provides system developers with highly efficient implementation of innovative AI solutions at reduced time-to-market and engineering costs. With the advanced AI performance, the RSC100 (Plato) is well suited for use in smart city applications, including smart surveillance, smart factory, smart agriculture, and smart transportation," said Ken Pan, the product manager at Axiomtek.

"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," said Liran Bar, VP 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 gamechanger in the edge AI space."

The RSC100 (Plato) comes with flexible and capable storage including a 16 GB 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. Benefiting from dual GbE ports, the RSC100 (Plato) enables IP cameras and LiDAR connectivity with greater bandwidth for video analytics. Furthermore, the edge computing appliance has two full-size PCIe Mini Card slots, a SIM slot, and an M.2 Key B 3052 slot for addition

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 box is designed with OVP, OCP as well as reverse protection for power protection. It can also withstand vibrations of up to 3 Grms in harsh environments with a temperature range of -20°C to +70°C, making it ideal for compute-intensive AI applications at the edge. In addition, the RSC100 (Plato) supports Linux operating system.

The Hailo-8 is built with an innovative architecture that enables edge devices to run sophisticated Deep Learning applications that could previously only run on the cloud. Hailo-8's advanced structure translates into unprecedented performance, lower power, and minimal latency, with enhanced privacy and more reliability for smart devices operating at the edge.

Advanced Features:
  • Hailo-8TM AI processor, up to 26 TOPS
  • Advanced AI performance, ideal for smart city applications
  • Dual GbE for GigE camera and LiDAR connectivity
  • Dual COM/Dual CANbus/8-CH DI/DO
  • Supports Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/5G/LTE wireless connection
  • Wide operating temperature from -20°C to +70°C
  • Supports Linux operating system
