SolidRun has announced the world’s first rugged system design that combines 8-core AMD Ryzen 7040 series processors with multiple Hailo-8 AI accelerators to create its Bedrock R7000 Edge AI for artificial intelligence (AI) applications. This new member in SolidRun’s Bedrock family of fanless modular industrial PCs is specifically designed to meet demanding vision-based situational awareness in harsh environments.
The new system integrates with the AMD Ryzen 7840HS processor, a state-of-the-art 4nm APU with 8C/16T Zen4 CPU, and an integrated RDNA 3 Radeon 780M GPU. The 20 native PCIe Gen4 lanes and up to three Hailo-8 AI accelerators can be fully utilized with NVME Gen4x4 storage, dual 2.5 Gbit Ethernet, and 4x4K displays. The CPU and all devices are passively cooled by the innovative fanless cooling system of the Bedrock R7000 in an industrial temperature range of -40ºC to 85ºC.
Demand for such high-performance Edge AI box-PCs is growing in all embedded market segments, including Industry 4.0, robotics, autonomous guided vehicles, healthcare, transportation, smart cities, retail, agriculture, defense, and utility.
“Efficiency and scalability are key factors in advanced edge AI,” said Irad Stavi, IPC Product Line Manager at SolidRun. “Bedrock R7000 stands out as the first fanless IPC based on the ultra-efficient AMD Ryzen 7040 processor and the innovative modular design which enables out-of-the-box integration of 3 Hailo-8 AI accelerators, each with 26 Tera Operations per Second (TOPS), or even more with a simple customization.”
“An important feature of Hailo-8 AI accelerator and Hailo AI Software Suite is linear scaling of the inference performance simply by adding modules,” said Dima Caplan, Product Manager at Hailo. “SolidRun’s new Edge AI platform exhibits ample system resources which enable high AI performance at perfect scaling.”
