Global industrial computer manufacturer Logic Supply (www.logicsupply.com) has introduced four new lines of IoT Edge Hardware designed for use in challenging computing environments. Edge hardware options include ultra-small form factor fanless Edge Devices, passively and actively cooled IoT Gateway systems, Deep Learning PCs with GPU configuration options, and Edge Servers. Systems can be configured with a wide range of processing, storage, memory, connectivity and expansion options, with the aim of providing IoT builders with the flexibil ity today’s edge computing projects require.
“There is no one-size-fits-all approach to IoT, every project and application has its own unique demands,” said Logic Supply Vice President of Products Murat Erdogan. “Ultimately, we want to provide IoT engineers with the best possible computing solution, and that means having the freedom to tailor the hardware configuration to the exact specifications for a given project.”
A Range of IoT Edge Platforms
The company’s edge hardware offering includes small form factor Edge Devices like the recently released, CL200 Fanless Edge Node, designed for deployment directly at the site of data-producing equipment and machinery.
The IoT Gateway Line adds additional processing power, storage and connectivity for more advanced, multi-source data-handling applications.
Logic Supply’s Deep Learning Computers, including the GPU-capable MC850, can be configured with up to Intel® Core i7 processors and a selection of GPUs, including the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, for advanced image processing, AI or machine learning applications.
The Edge Server Line enables secure, reliable data management and includes a range of small form factor fanless systems as well as actively-cooled rackmount servers.
With data security a critical concern for cloud and edge computing applications, Logic Supply utilizes Trusted Platform Module (TPM) hardware, as well as Intel’s Platform Trust Technology (PTT) throughout their Edge Line.
Later this year, Logic Supply plans to expand the line to include Intel Xeon® processing options, as well as accelerator cards including Movidius Vision Processing Units (VPUs) and Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs).
Many of the systems in the IoT Edge Hardware line have been tested and verified for use with Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services, which provide IoT developers access to a wide range of cloud-based applications. Logic Supply recently announced a collaboration with Amazon Web Services to begin offering AWS Greengrass with Machine Learning Inference as a pre-installed option on Logic Supply edge hardware.
4G Cellular Connectivity
To ensure reliable network connectivity, Logic Supply’s edge hardware features the company’s Extrovert 4G LTE Technology, a line of pre-certified modems that enable cellular data transfer in locations where WiFi is either unavailable or unreliable, including in-vehicle or portable monitoring applications. The company also plans to begin offering Bluetooth 5.0 and Long Range, Low Power (LoRa) wireless connectivity as configuration options in the coming months.
