UP Xtreme i12 Edge computer bring AI to health and transport
The latest addition to the UP series by Aaeon is based on the 12 th generation Intel Core, or Intel Celeron processors.
The UP Xtreme i12 Edge makes substantial upgrades on Aaeon’s predecessor with the power-efficient, multi-core architecture of 12 th Generation Intel Core i7 / i5 / i3 / Celeron processors (formerly Alder Lake-P), onboard LPDDR5, and AI module support. These contribute to its adaptability for industrial, healthcare, and transport applications.
For expansion, the UP Xtreme i12 Edge has four M.2 Keys for Wi-Fi 6, 5G, AI and PCIe 4.0 storage module support, in order to bring edge AI computing capabilities to a wider variety of markets. The computer also supports Intel Iris Xe graphics, Intel DL Boost, and the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO Toolkit. This boosts GPU image classification inferencing performance by up to 2.81 times that of the previous generation, confirmed Vishay.
Housed in a fanless 152 x 123.8 x 72.5mm chassis, the UP Xtreme i12 Edge also has one USB 4.0, three USB 3.2, and three USB 2.0 ports, along with an Intel i226-IT LAN port running at 2.5Gbits per second and with TSN (time sensitive networking). Aording to Aaeon, the UP Xtreme i12 can achieve real-time data processing using its onboard LPDDR5 system memory.
A selection of I/O ports complement the display interface, which can support four simultaneous 4K displays via configurations of HDMI 2.0, DP 1.4a and eDP 1.4b ports, enhanced by Intel Iris Xe graphics.
Potential uses of the combination of computing performance and AI are smart retail and industrial automation solutions, particularly given its fanless chassis and 12 to 36V power input range.
The UP Xtreme i12 Edge is in mass production and available for order.
