Impulse Embedded offer’s ASRock/’s GPU for AI inference at the edge
The ASRock IEPF-9010S-EY4 GPU AI system is available from Impulse Embedded and provides a rich selection of I/O and storage options. It features the Intel R680E chipset, the IEPF-9010S-EY4, which supports up to 65W Intel 12th Gen Core processors and can be partnered with up to 250W Nvidia GPU in a rugged package suitable for AI inference at the edge.
The IEPF-9010S-EY4 features an LGA1700 CPU socket and can support a wide range of Intel’s 12th Gen Alder Lake processors including the flagship Intel Core i9 12900E, a 16-core, 24-thread hybrid processor that features eight Big or Performance cores with hyper-threading and eight low power Efficient cores.
It uses Intel’s new Thread Director in Windows 11, to assign demanding tasks to the larger Performance cores and pushes background functional tasks to Efficient cores for the system performance to focus on high intensity workloads.
The need to perform AI inference at the edge is becoming increasingly commonplace in the industrial sector. As the technology behind these embedded systems improves the capability to perform and support more features is extended. The IEPF-9010S-EY4 has an array of features that can help businesses tailor the system to the needs of their application.
The system is expandable but remains compact with support for up to three PCI-Express Gen4 cards, via one PCIe [x16], one PCIe [x8] and two PCIe [x4] which can be used in a variety of configurations. For AI inference there is support for up to 250W GPUs such as the Nvidia 24Gbyte RTX A5500 which features 320 Tensor cores for accelerating machine learning applications.
I/O options include six serial ports, six USB ports, 16-channel digital I/O, and five 2.5Gbits per second LAN interfaces, of which two support PoE (Power over Ethernet). For additional comms expansion, there are also two full-size mPCIe slots, one M.2 2280/3042/3052 B-key slot for 5G cellular support or additional storage, one M.2 2230 E-key for Wi-Fi and six breakouts for SMA antennas.
The IEPF-9010S-EY4 operates over a wide range of temperatures from -40 to +75 degrees C (35W CPU), with high shock and vibration resistance for functionality even in the harshest environments.
Impulse Embedded can configure the IEPF-9010S-EY4 to customer’s exact specifications in the UK-based engineering facility with a choice of processor, memory, storage, peripheral cards, and operating system.
