Avnet Silica demos AI and IoT technologies at embedded world 2019
Avnet Silica will exhibit at this year’s embedded world and highlight its competencies in different focused areas under the banner ‘technologies, solutions and services to reach further’.
Demonstration suites from Avnet Silica will feature advanced technologies in the fields of safety and security, power, analog and sensors, wireless and Ethernet-based connectivity. Avnet Silica has significant expertise across all of these fields, coupled with its years of experience working closely with customers, helping to speed hardware and software development, and enabling them to quickly bring products, systems and end-to-end solutions to market.
Another area will feature advanced system solutions that have been developed by customers and other key partners in close collaboration with Avnet Silica. These are based upon a diverse suite of technologies and target applications including edge-to-enterprise IoT, connectivity, security, embedded vision and data communications. Particular focus will be given to the strategically important technologies required in product and system development for the IoT.
The key demonstrations in the system solutions area will showcase:
- TSN-based industrial control, artificial intelligence and FPGA-accelerated image cognition capabilities. Developed by Avnet Silica’s Software and Services team, the ‘TSNeyes’ platform is an application-agnostic tool that can be mapped and adapted to a multitude of real-world use cases. It has been designed to be a research, evaluation and demonstration tool to help accelerate the adoption of future embedded vision and Industry 4.0 technologies.
- A Microsoft Azure Sphere highly secured MCU cloud solution like Avnet Azure Sphere MT3620 Starter Kit. In an extension of its partnership with Microsoft, Avnet will introduce the Avnet Azure Sphere MT3620 Starter Kit to help product developers overcome the challenges of bringing IoT products to market. The Avnet Azure Sphere MT3620 Starter Kit features extensive connectivity and sensor options that help developers create highly secure IoT and edge devices that quickly and easily connect to Microsoft Azure. Last spring, Microsoft named Avnet the lead partner for Microsoft Azure Sphere and the first to distribute the product. Azure Sphere is a solution for creating highly secured, internet-connected microcontroller-powered devices, and the new development kit supports rapid prototyping to accelerate IoT deployments.
- An AI-accelerated multi-camera development system that comes with various computer-vision and machine-learning application examples, including object detection, face recognition, segmentation and video analytics. The system offers a complete imaging solution connecting multiple cameras to a Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC development platform.
- Secure authentication of IoT devices, developed in partnership with Zurich University of Applied Sciences and targeting building automation applications in particular. The demo is based around a research project built by ZHAW based on the secure authentication of resource-constrained wireless nodes in an IP-based mesh network.
