Advantech is a global leader in the fields of AI and IoT intelligent systems and embedded platforms. They are developing a new series of IoT, big data, and artificial intelligence hardware and software products. Their Edge Intelligence WISE-PaaS core is at the heart of these products and is built using Xilinx technology.
Recently, Advantech successfully deployed the Xilinx DPU to their customized board - VEGA-550, which uses four ZU7EV devices. By integrating Xilinx’s DPU into the design, they were able to implement 32-channel, 1080p 30fps video transcoding and real-time face detection/object detection.
This solution was exhibited at NAB show on April. Key highlights are:
Reconfigurable video processing and video intelligence accelerators based on Xilinx MPSoC technology
Integrated 32-channel Full HD video encode & decode with real-time AI inferencing
The optimized implementation of Xilinx ZU7EV gave industry-leading power and area
Xilinx SDSoC™ compatible, allowing developers to build their 3rd party IP using RTL/OpenCL
Support for mainstream algorithms such as SSD/YOLO V3
PCIe x16 support with both low profile and professional GPU form factors available
