IBASE Technology, a manufacturer of application specific embedded computer platforms, has unveiled the EC-7100. Built with the high-performance NVIDIA GTX 1080 graphics card equipped with 2560 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR5X memory and up to 9 TFLOPS capability, the EC-7100 platform combines the computing power of the NVIDIA’s MXM GPU hardware accelerator and the 7th Generation Intel® Core™ processor family to leverage streaming data for artificial intelligence-driven applications in the transportation, automation and retail industries.
“We have designed the EC-7100 to meet the demand for edge computing solutions with optimal performance and low latency to bring faster data processing and real time analytics for the user,” said Archer Chien, Director of IBASE Solution Product Planning Department. “The system delivers high-throughput inference for computing vision applications such as image recognition, object detection, and image classification.”
Measuring 340 x 170 x 79mm and suited to most indoor installations, the standard model comes installed with an Intel® Core™ i7-7700 3.0GHz processor, 16GB DDR4 system memory that is expandable to 32GB, and one 128GB SATA-III SSD storage and a spare connector for a second drive. Four DisplayPort 1.4 interfaces are available, together with expansion provided by M.2 sockets, a full-size mPCIe and a SIM card slot. Also supported are Ubuntu and Windows 10 operating systems, as well as a maximum of three Gigabit Ethernet ports.
