Introducing Myriad X: Unleashing AI at the Edge

Remi El-Ouazzane for Intel:  Throughout my career, and now more than ever at Intel, I have dreamed about where technology will take us next, and it’s even more exciting to be creating the future. Today, that future is here with the unveiling of the Myriad™ X, the world’s first vision processing unit (VPU) to ship with a dedicated Neural Compute Engine to deliver artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to the edge in an incredibly low-power, high-performance package.

In the coming years, we’ll see a huge range of new products emerge that are made more autonomous by embedding real-time intelligence capabilities in devices – from drones and smart cameras to augmented reality and more – to give them the ability to see, understand, interact with and learn from rapidly changing environments.

Myriad X combines dedicated imaging, computer vision processing and – thanks to the industry-first Neural Compute Engine – high-performance deep learning inference within the same chip, and the results are opening up new realms of possibility. With this faster, more pervasive intelligence embedded directly into devices, the potential to make our world safer, more productive and more personal is limitless. From autonomous delivery drones and security cameras with contextual understanding to personal robots that have both situational and emotional awareness, Myriad X will unleash innovation for a new future of intelligent and autonomous devices.

To make this possible, we’ve removed the time and power constraints of communication with the cloud and enabled deep learning at the device level. This is where the power of the VPU comes in – the Movidius™ platform is specifically designed to meet the challenges of autonomous devices. Our tiny VPUs put visual intelligence directly onboard the device while delivering industry-leading compute performance at an ultralow power threshold.

This is the day I have looked forward to since we were welcomed into the Intel family nearly one year ago – how time flies. In working across Intel’s diverse areas of expertise – from the AI Product Group and IoTG to the Intel Labs and RealSense teams, we have been able to give scale to our technology and push the performance of deep learning at the edge to bring Myriad X to the world in a form that is better and faster than I ever imagined.  Full Article:

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
