Furthermore, AAEON added a version of the BOXER-8120AI, now featuring the Jetson TX2 4GB module, implementing a choice for AI edge computing with 256 CUDA cores achieving processing speeds up to 1.3 TFLOPS.
AAEON is a partner in the NVIDIA Jetson ecosystem. The NVIDIA Jetson family of products renders the performance and power efficiency to control autonomous machines, bringing modern AI, deep learning, and inference to embedded systems at the edge.
Real-Time Systems: Design Principles for Distributed Embedded Applications
Real-Time Systems concentrates on hard real-time systems, which are computing systems that must satisfy their temporary specification in all expected load and fault scenarios. The book emphasizes the system aspects of distributed real-time applications, discussing the issues of real-time, distribution, and fault-tolerance from an integral point of view.
A unique cross-fertilization of ideas and concepts between the academic and industrial worlds has led to the incorporation of various insightful models from industry to describe the basic scientific concepts in a real-world setting. Compared to the first edition, new developments in complexity management, energy and power management, dependability, security, and the internet of things, are addressed.
The book is written as a standard textbook for a high-level undergraduate or graduate course on real-time embedded systems or cyber-physical systems. Its pragmatic approach to solving real-time problems, along with many summary exercises, makes it an exceptional choice for researchers and practitioners alike.
The following is part of A Comprehensible Guide to Industrial Ethernet by Wilfried Voss.High-speed and high-precision manufacturing equipment such as, for instance, a robotic arm utilizes electric components like motion controllers, programmable logic controllers (PLC), feedback devices, and more, and it is mandatory for the machine’s performance that these components work together in a synchronized fashion. [...]
The following is part of A Comprehensible Guide to Industrial Ethernet by Wilfried Voss.The demand for Ethernet as a real-time communication network has increased continuously in the past due to the benefits of employing a single network technology throughout the manufacturing facility, from office to plant floor.However, the unpredictable nature of Ethernet TCP/IP’s timing (which will [...]
The following is part of A Comprehensible Guide to Industrial Ethernet by Wilfried Voss.While Ethernet TCP/IP is a well-established and well-known networking technology, Industrial Ethernet, for various reasons, is still widely regarded as an unknown entity. This statement may appear contradictory to the fact that most of the available protocols already exist for several years (e.g., Modbus/TCP was introduced in 1999), [...]
