October 7, 2019 AAEON

(Taipei, Taiwan - September 24, 2019) - AAEON, the award winning industry leader in AI@Edge solutions, announces the launch of the BOXER-8300AI Series. Including the BOXER-8310AI, BOXER-8320AI, and the BOXER-8330AI (Coming Q4 2019), this family of AI@Edge embedded box PCs power AI and edge computing thanks to the innovative Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X.

At the core of the BOXER-8300AI series is the innovative AI Core X module from AAEON. Each AI Core X module features the Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X VPU. The Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X provides high performance processing, with speeds up to 105 fps (80 fps typical) and 1 TOPS as a dedicated neural network. The BOXER-8300AI Series features improved thermal design, allowing the Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X to operate at higher temperatures without loss of performance.

The BOXER-8310AI offers users entry-level value and performance in a compact fanless system. Small enough to fit almost anywhere, this embedded AI@Edge system is powered by a choice of Intel® Pentium™ N4200 or Intel® Celeron™ N3350 processors with up to 8 GB of RAM. The BOXER-8310AI features one AI Core X module, providing users with processing capability to power AI solutions such as traffic monitoring, people counting, or even smart retail solutions. With its improved thermal design, the BOXER-8310AI can operate easily in temperatures from -20°C to as high as 55°C

The BOXER-8320AI brings the power of the 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i3 Mobile Processor as well as two AI Core X modules, offering processing speeds up to 210 fps (160 typical). The fanless BOXER-8320AI is built with a din-rail mount design and form factor, allowing it to easily integrate into any industrial space, or control cabinet. The advanced thermal design of the BOXER-8320AI allows it to operate in conditions from -20°C to 60°C. With the power of the Intel® Core™ i3 processor and two AI Core X modules, the BOXER-8320AI can be used in high-performance AI applications such as smart security, facial recognition, and more.

The BOXER-8300AI series offers users several advantages over other embedded AI@Edge systems. All BOXER-8300AI systems are compatible with the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit, allowing users to run AI inferences on existing frameworks (such as TensorFlow or Caffe) or to create their own. The BOXER-8300AI supports expandable storage, supporting the full suite of Linux and Ubuntu. This also allows the BOXER-8300AI series to be expanded with support for wireless cards such as WiFi, 4G, or Bluetooth. Memory is also easy to replace and upgrade.

AAEON offers all of our customers support to get their projects off the ground. Our manufacturing services and OEM/ODM support provides end-to-end guidance to see your project from concept to production and beyond. For others, AAEON offers complete Linux with Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit images which can be downloaded from AAEON to get your BOXER-8300AI system up and running the moment you turn it on.

"The BOXER-8300AI series with AI Core X offers our customers a competitive solution to powering AI and Edge Computing," said Ken Pan, Product Manager with AAEON's System Platform Division. "With AAEON's industry leading support, it's easier than ever for customers to make the choice for an Intel® based AI@Edge platform."
