Vecow and Blaize Team to Deliver Leading Workstation-grade Edge AI Computing Solution

Vecow ECX-2400 AI Computing System targets demanding industrial applications with higher system reliability, lower power consumption and faster time-to-market - ideal Edge AI solution for lower total cost of ownership (TCO)

El Dorado Hills, CA and New Taipei City, Taiwan — September 27, 2021 — Vecow Co.,  Ltd., a team of global embedded experts, and Blaize®, the AI edge computing innovator, today  announced the launch of the Vecow ECX-2400 workstation-grade AI Computing System. Vecow ECX-2400 AI Computing System harnesses the Blaize Graph Streaming Processor® (GSP®)  based Xplorer AI accelerator to deliver outstanding AI performance with higher system  reliability, lower power consumption and faster time-to-market. Vecow ECX-2400 AI is a trusted  solution for smart AOI, public security, robotic control, traffic vision, and any Industry 4.0/AIoT  applications at the edge with less total cost of ownership (TCO). 

The Vecow ECX-2400 AI is powered by workstation-grade 10-core 10th Gen Intel® Xeon®/Core™ i9/i7/i5/i3 processor, and incorporates the advanced Blaize Xplorer X1600P PCIe series AI accelerator card supporting up to 80 TOPS of AI inference performance in a compact and ruggedized configuration. To address demanding industrial requirements, Vecow ECX-2400  AI features smart system protection functions including 12V to 50V wide range DC power input,  80V surge protection, software ignition power control and even 250W system power budget,  making it the trusted solution for any mission critical AI accelerating tasks at the edge. 

The Blaize software programmable GSP architecture provides a low latency and high performance inference processing solution requiring less memory with fewer access, yielding an  ideal low latency AI system that consumes less power than other accelerators. “The Blaize  software programmable GSP architecture excels in AI inference for edge-based products and  appliances,” said Kev Wang, Applied Software Manager at Vecow. Vecow ECX-2400 AI has  integrated the Blaize Picasso SDK into VHub AI developer software, enabling the users to easily  develop, deploy and manage edge AI inference systems with single-core or quad-core Blaize Xplorer AI Inference Accelerators.

“It’s our honor to carry a new powerful and lower power consumption AI accelerator solution to  the market,” said Joseph Huang, Global Sales Director at Vecow. “Industrial users have  stringent requirements for trusted and reliable AI computing engines with longevity support and  less total cost of ownership. This collaboration with Blaize contributes our global partners and customers closer to their success with faster time-to-market consideration. We will keep  engaging advanced AI technologies to benefit to our global partners and customers.” 

“We look forward to jointly engaging with end customers and channel partners to deliver the  new levels of efficient and cost-effective AI inference systems enabled by the Vecow ECX-2400 AI,” said Barrie Mullins, Sr. Director, Product Marketing, Blaize. “Industrial customers using  vision analytics in use cases such as industrial inspection, manufacturing production line  anomaly, human robot interaction, employee safety and smart camera systems can utilize the  ECX-2400 AI to advance operational efficiencies and processes.” 

Powered by workstation-grade 10-core 10th Gen Intel Xeon/Core i9/i7/i5/i3 processor running  with Blaize Xplorer X1600P PCIe series AI accelerator card supporting up to 80 TOPS of AI  inference performance, system-oriented optimization and protecting features, Vecow ECX-2400  AI serves higher system reliability, lower power consumption and faster time-to-market to  contribute project success with less total cost of ownership (TCO) for Smart AOI, Smart City,  Public Security, Robot Control and any AIoT applications at the edge.

Why long-term consistent performance matters for relative humidity sensors

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

The open cavity sensing element included in relative humidity sensors is constantly exposed to the environment, leading to drift over time. The new relative humidity sensor, the HDC3020, offers integrated drift correction technology to reduce drift caused by environmental stress or interactions with contaminants. This article discusses the accuracy and long-term drift of humidity sensors and how these parameters impact end-equipment performance and lifetimes.
