SEPTEMBER 20, 2021
PARIS-(BUSINESS WIRE)-GrAI Matter Labs (GML), a pioneer of brain-inspired ultra-low latency computing, and ADLINK Technology Inc., a global leader in edge computing, today announced the companies’ partnership to create a Life-Ready AI SMARC platform based on ADLINK’s SMARC I-Pi Development kits and GML’s Life-Ready GrAI VIP (Vision Inference Processor).
Life-Ready AI SMARC Module enabled products such as robots, drones, autonomous vehicles, inspection cameras and more, will now be able to act, and react in real-time all while saving time, money and vital natural resources. The ultra-small form factor SMARC can be directly embedded into the camera module, to provide ultra-low system latency, low power consumption, and the flexibility to integrate AI close to the sensors.
GML and ADLINK will showcase the world’s first Life-Ready AI Kit for Robotics Education, using the GrAI VIP platform on ROS2 and ADLINK SMARC I-Pi development platform at the SIDO Fair starting September 22nd.
Christian Verbrugge, GML Europe – Senior Director Business Development, said: “We are so thrilled to be working with ADLINK as a provider of cutting edge SMARC modules for scalable, low-power, industrial solutions to address the rapidly growing trend of systems with integrated AI. Together we will deliver a SMARC platform that will be integrated with our ‘Life-Ready AI’ chip, GrAI VIP, allowing us to offer full-stack solutions to our end customers that will drive value for their businesses.”
Pierre Guillaume, ADLINK France – Head of Sales, said: “GML’s Life-Ready VIP offers a one-of-a-kind brain-inspired computing architecture optimized for AI Inference performance at very low power; a key feature most industrial clients demand for their Edge AI applications. Because ADLINK’s area of expertise is at the edge, we are excited to partner with GML to bring their VIP accelerator into our existing IPI SMARC platform so we continue growing our business in key vertical segments such as Machine Vision & Robotics by offering to our clients the widest choice of market-leading AI accelerators in ready-to-use hardware form factors. We are also thrilled to empower the next generation of young European AI developers with the launch of GML’s IPI SMARC dev kit for the education market.”
