What is SMARC?

/
The ‘building blocks’ of embedded systems, SMARC modules are hard-wearing, low-energy and flexible enough to meet a range of applications. Find out more.

Avnet Embedded co-hosts webinar with Intel on 11th generation processors

Avnet Embedded partnered with Intel recently to launch the 11th generation of Intel Core processors. As part of the launch, Avnet Embedded's own Compute Innovation expert, Chris Engels, recorded a webinar with Intel to explore the potential of the processors in Mission Critical applications.

The rise of machine intelligence in the AI era

/
There is a lot of buzz around the deep learning technology and the remarkable market growth it has made. A deep learning solution, unlike AI and ML, needs a huge amount of embedded data and computational power to make machines learn human behavior, store knowledge, and make predictions using a trained neural network.

Industrial automation demands high flexibility

/
Based on deep expertise and an extensive portfolio of SMARC 2.0, Qseven, COM Express and nanoRISC standard modules, Avnet Integrated offers application-optimized single board computer solutions. These innovative products are designed for industrial applications and are developed and manufactured in-house in Stutensee, Germany.

3 use cases for embedded platforms enabling HMIs and IoT systems

/
The demand for intelligent human machine interface (HMI) systems, flexible panel PCs and easy-to-configure Internet of Things (IoT) gateways for industry remains strong and will continue to grow.

Regulatory insights: Are your computer, audiovisual and information technology products ready for the transition to 62368-1?

/
Regulatory certification can be confusing because of constantly changing standards, the complexity of the process and the amount of time needed to properly complete it. For most of our customers it is well outside their core competency and can be a drain on resources, delay time-to-market and create unnecessary liabilities.

Does hardware matter?

/
I believe every IoT and Industrial IoT system designer and software developer should consider the question in the title. Do you? With millions of ready-made hardware solutions, fierce competition keeps hardware prices down. This may lead one to think that hardware does not matter. And that one can choose the cheapest platform that seems to be able to run the software in a test environment.

Machines in the middle: infection transmission via touchscreens

/
In the last few months, what we touch – and who else has touched it - has suddenly become a critical thought process that very few people thought of previously. Touch screens, devices, kiosks, fuel pumps – people are a lot more conscious of what they have to touch, and the implications of hygiene on every day life.

AI Inference at the Edge: A lesson from Marie Curie

In 1914, Marie Curie’s work on radium stopped in its tracks as the reality of World War I approached. Undaunted, Curie sent her entire stock of radium to a local bank by train and embarked on a new project – using her knowledge of radiology to save soldiers’ lives. The problem Curie identified was that wounded troops needed the latest X-ray technology to quickly diagnose broken bones and find shrapnel such as bullets. But all of the X-ray machines were in hospitals, in large cities. This presented a major obstacle for fast diagnosis, decision making and lifesaving action to be taken.
