Vecow and Blaize Team to Deliver Leading Workstation-grade Edge AI Computing Solution

29-09-2021

Vecow ECX-2400 AI Computing System targets demanding industrial applications with higher system reliability, lower power consumption and faster time-to-market - ideal Edge AI solution for lower total cost of ownership (TCO) Vecow Co., Ltd., a team of global embedded experts, and Blaize®, the AI edge computing innovator, today announced the launch of the Vecow ECX-2400 workstation-grade AI Computing System.

Vecow ECX-2400 AI Computing System harnesses the Blaize Graph Streaming Processor® (GSP®) based Xplorer AI accelerator to deliver outstanding AI performance with higher system reliability, lower power consumption and faster time-to-market. Vecow ECX-2400 AI is a trusted solution for smart AOI, public security, robotic control, traffic vision, and any Industry 4.0/AIoT applications at the edge with less total cost of ownership (TCO).

The Vecow ECX-2400 AI is powered by workstation-grade 10-core 10th Gen Intel® Xeon®/CoreTM i9/i7/i5/i3 processor, and incorporates the advanced Blaize Xplorer X1600P PCIe series AI accelerator card supporting up to 80 TOPS of AI inference performance in a compact and ruggedized configuration. To address demanding industrial requirements, Vecow ECX-2400 AI features smart system protection functions including 12V to 50V wide range DC power input, 80V surge protection, software ignition power control and even 250W system power budget, making it the trusted solution for any mission critical AI accelerating tasks at the edge.

The Blaize software programmable GSP architecture provides a low latency and high- performance inference processing solution requiring less memory with fewer access, yielding an ideal low latency AI system that consumes less power than other accelerators.

“The Blaize software programmable GSP architecture excels in AI inference for edge-based products and appliances,” said Kev Wang, Applied Software Manager at Vecow. Vecow ECX-2400 AI has integrated the Blaize Picasso SDK into VHub AI developer software, enabling the users to easily develop, deploy and manage edge AI inference systems with single-core or quad-core Blaize Xplorer AI Inference Accelerators. “It’s our honour to carry a new powerful and lower power consumption AI accelerator solution to the market,” said Joseph Huang, Global Sales Director at Vecow. “Industrial users have stringent requirements for trusted and reliable AI computing engines with longevity support and less total cost of ownership. This collaboration with Blaize contributes our global partners and customers closer to their success with faster time-to-market consideration. We will keep engaging advanced AI technologies to benefit to our global partners and customers.”
