iEi’s new Mustang-MPCIE-MX2 computing accelerator card

ICP Australia has introduced iEi’s new Mustang-MPCIE-MX2 computing accelerator miniPCIe card with two Intel Movidius Myriad X VPU, providing a flexible AI inference Solution, designed to execute two topologies simultaneously.

The Mustang-MPCIE-MX2 card includes two Intel Movidius Myriad X VPU, providing a flexible AI inference solution for space limited and embedded systems.

VPU is short for vision processing unit. It can run AI faster, and is well suited for low power consumption applications such as surveillance, retail and transportation, as its power consumption is 7.5W.

This highly flexible product supports Intel’s OpenVINO toolkit for the optimisation of pre-trained deep-learning models such as Caffe, MXNT, ONNX and Tensorflow.

With the advantage of power efficiency and high performance to dedicate DNN topologies, it is perfect to be implemented in AI Edge computing device to reduce total power usage, providing longer duty time for the rechargeable edge computing equipment.

Key features:

  • miniPCIe form factor (30 x 50 mm)
  • 2 x Intel Movidius Myriad X VPU MA2485
  • Power efficiency, approximate 7.5W
  • Operating temperature 0°C-55°C (In TANK AIoT Dev. kit)
  • Powered by Intel’s OpenVINO toolkit

AI training system with Intel Xeon W family processor

ICP Australia is introducing iEi’s GRAND-C422-20D AI training system with Intel Xeon W family processor and powerful PCIe expansion ability.

The GRAND-C422-20D is an AI training system which has maximum expansion ability to add in AI computing accelerator cards for AI model training or inference.

Powered by an advanced 14nm Intel Xeon W processor with an Integrated Intel C422 PCH, and up to 256GB DDR4 ECC RDIMM/LRDIMM RAM, the GRAND-C422-20D storage server delivers outstanding performance for data transmission and applications.

Storage spaces support up to 20 2.5-inch/3.5-inch SATA 6Gb/s drives, allowing for SATA hard drives and SSDs. Businesses can create the most cost-effective storage by implementing suitable drives based on their needs.

The AI training system GRAND-C442 is dedicated for these tasks because it offers a wide range of slots for storage expansion, acceleration cards and video capture, Thunderbolt or PoE add-on cards for unlimited data acquisition possibilities.

In order to develop a useful training model, existing and widely used deep learning training frameworks such as Caffe, Tensor-Flow or Apache MXNet are recommended. These facilitate the definition of the apt architecture and algorithms for a distinct AI application.

Key features include:

  • Intel Xeon W family processor supported
  • 6 x PCIe slot, up to four dual-width GPU cards
  • Water cooling system on CPU
  • Supports two U.2 SSD
  • Supports one M.2 SSD M-Key slot (NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4)
  • Support 10GbE network
  • IPMI remote management

iEi’s GPOE series PCI express power over Ethernet card

ICP Australia is proud to introduce iEi’s GPOE Series (GPOE-2P and GPOE-4P) PCI Express Power over Ethernet Card 2/4-Port 1000 Base(T), 802.3at/af Compliant, Low Profile, RoHS.

With PoE Technology, users can easily connect various PoE PD supported IP camera to the control system through the standard CAT-5/CAT-6 Cable (up to 100 meters) to transfer both electrical power and data at the same time.

In this application, users can lower the difficulty of routing to avoid the risk of Power Adapter Failure, and easily build the system to act as PSE, allowing the entire Production Process to be Monitored and Controlled from A to Z.

Access Control System can be easily developed by connecting PoE-Capable Devices like door controller, locking system and RFID Reader. Combining power supply and data transmission in a single cable can save both cost and time on system installation. It is also easy to integrate IP-based system into the existing IP infrastructure.

The GPOE series can be added into In-Vehicle Control System and connect to various devices like surveillance camera, bus payment terminal or In-Bus digital signage system. Both data and electrical power can run on standard CAT-5/CAT-6 cable to lower the difficulty of routing and avoid the risk of power adapter failure.

Features include:

  • PCI Express x1 Compliant
  • 802.3at/af Compliant (GPOE-4P), 802.3at compliant (GPOE-2P)
  • Support IEEE 802.3at for PoE (Power over Ethernet) with 30W per port (GPOE-2P)
  • Support for total 60W under full load (GPOE-4P)
  • Support link aggregation/jumbo frames (9 Kbyte)
  • Supports 12V~24V DC input power
