Manufacturers are increasingly using connected nodes to monitor production on the factory floor, as well as for surveillance, traffic, and retail applications.
Seeking processing power that can boost IoT board and blade performance, manufacturers are eagerly integrating ‘upgrades’ in microarchitecture.
Earlier this year ADL Embedded announced the ADLVIS-1700 CoaXPress/CameraLink vision system. The prototype debuted at Embedded World, in Nuremberg, Germany. At 5.0 x 7.0 x 7.6-inch, it is claimed to be the smallest CoaXPress system in the industry. It consists of a CoaXPress board inside the vision box (see Figure 1). The company has used the small PCIe/104 form factor, and believes it is the first to do so.
“The new, low-power versions of the high-end 64-bit Intel Core processors offer a highly configurable Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 15W.”
