Collaboration bring ‘ready made’ IoT edge gateways for retail and industry
In a collaboration to bring hardware and software for IoT edge gateway devices together, Beechwoods Software and GigaPic believe they provide a complete solution for retail and industrial applications.
The IoT Edge software is based on Beechwoods’ Edge Optimised Software (EOS) which is a supported edge computing platform which includes a pre-packaged Linux distribution, integrated edge analytics, dashboard application software and a setup configuration console. There is also support for leading cloud service providers like Amazon IoT Core, Azure IoT Hub, Google IoT Core and IBM Watson IoT for hybrid cloud use case scenarios.
The EOS software has been validated on GigaPic’s industrial motherboard which is powered by AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 and R1000 Series processors. The processor provide the performance and capabilities required to securely manage data processing, aggregation and analytics at the edge as well as headroom for future proofing, assures GigaPic.
According to Michael Daulerio, Beechwoods’ vice president, marketing and business development: “We’re pleased to join forces with GigaPic to provide a product-ready IoT edge solution based on AMD Ryzen Embedded Processor technology.”
GigaPic is an independent spin-off from GigaByte. It was established in 2018. It has an award-winning Taiwan-based manufacturing facility, synchronising with its R&D department to deliver high quality and reliable products. The company says it aims to offer not only high-quality computing platforms but also world-class service and support.
