ICP Germany recently released the Mustang-M2BM-MX2 card AI accelerator cards, adding to their portfolio of Mini PCIe and PCIe based solutions with an M.2 PCIe plug-in card variant. The 22x80mm cards have two Intel Movidius Myriad X MA2485 Vision Processing Units (VPUs) to provide AI functionality through 16 SHAVES cores each. Each Myriad VPU delivers up to one trillion calculations per second.
With a maximum power of 8 watts, the Mustang-M2BM-MX2 is particularly suitable for low-power AI applications. Additionally, the multi-channel capability allows each VPU to be assigned a different DL topology. Its compatibility with the Open Visual Inference Neural Network Optimization (OpenVINOTM) Toolkit from Intel ensures a simple and rapid integration of various AI training models.
The Mustang-M2BM-MX2 is compatible with common Linux operating systems, CentOS, and Windows 10, and supports numerous architectures and topologies of neural networks, such as AlexNet, GoogleNet, SqueezeNet and Yolo. In addition to other AI accelerator cards, ICP also offers ready-to-use embedded systems, which are also equipped with AI functionality.
The card and other products can be seen live at the Embedded World in Nuremberg in Hall 1 Stand 201.
