Innodisk Proves AI Prowess with Launch of FPGA Machine Vision Platform
TAIPEI, Nov. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Innodisk, a leading global provider of industrial-grade flash storage, DRAM 
memory and embedded peripherals, has announced its latest step into the AI 
market, with the launch of 
EXMU-X261(, an 
FPGA Machine Vision Platform. Powered by AMD's Xilinx Kria K26 SOM, which was 
designed to enable smart city and smart factory applications, Innodisk's FPGA 
Machine Vision 
Platform( is set 
to lead the way for industrial system integrators looking to develop machine 
vision applications.

Automated defect inspection, a key machine vision application, is an essential 
technology in modern manufacturing. Automated visual inspection guarantees that 
the product works as expected and meets specifications. In these cases, it is 
vital that a fast and highly accurate inspection system is used. Without AI, 
operators must manually inspect each product, taking an average of three 
seconds per item. Now, with the help of AI solutions such as Innodisk's FPGA 
Machine Vision 
product inspection in factories can be automated, and the end result is not 
only faster and cheaper, but can be completely free of human error.

Innodisk's FPGA Machine Vision 
Platform( comes 
with 1GbE LAN, 4 USB 3.1 Gen1 ports, 2 M.2 slots, and a series of other 
expansion and connectivity options. Thanks to the platform's 0° to 70 °C 
operational temperature support, and optional industrial temperature support 
from -40° to +85°C, 
EXMU-X261( is 
tough enough for the harshest of industrial environments. In addition, 
EXMU-X261 features support for Innodisk's InnoAgent out-of-band remote 
e-oob-space-with-innoagent), allowing the platform to be remotely managed from 
anywhere, even during a system crash or an in-band network failure. This is 
important for any automated system, as it allows for it to be completely 
unmanned, which further reduces manpower and maintenance costs.

Customers can take advantage of AMD's Xilinx Kria K26 SOM's ability to quickly 
get applications to market thanks to EXMU-X261's full support for Innodisk's AI 
Suite SDK. The suite includes an FPGA Model Zoo, as well as Innodisk's in-house 
software solutions(, such as iCAP 
(Innodisk Cloud Administration Platform), and iVIT (Innodisk Vision 
Intelligence Toolkit). iVIT for example, provides a deep learning environment 
for efficient development and deployment of "no-code-operation" solutions.
