This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

Advantech Edge AI Acceleration Module

Advantech’s VEGA-340 Edge AI Acceleration Modules provide plug-and-play AI inference capabilities for vision applications including video surveillance, medical diagnostics, and machine vision. 

The modules feature Intel Movidius Myriad X VPUs that are optimized for image processing, computer vision, and deep learning, and provide 10 times the performance of previous-generation models. The VEGA-340 is designed for quick integration into edge devices and brings hardware acceleration for common deep neural networks. 

Developers can leverage the Edge AI Suite for real-time status monitoring and AI inference using pre-trained or custom models, and the Intel OpenVINO toolkit to optimize inference performance. 

The modules fully comply with media industry needs and can be scaled to perform inference on multiple video streams.
