Newark element14, the Development Distributor, has launched an AI Configurator tool that allows engineers to quickly select the most appropriate development solution for their artificial intelligence (AI) projects.
Featuring products available from Newark element14, the new configurator enables users to identify the development boards, associated add-on boards, accessories and software that best meet their needs from a wide range of vendors. This ensures that they work on a board that provides the optimum support they require, speeding up development without the need for unnecessary and time-consuming research.
“Engineers are often only aware of products from a limited number of vendors, but by offering them a selection of solutions from the widest possible spectrum of suppliers, the AI Configurator tool means that engineers don’t need to be experts on products from every vendor to ensure they are using the best technology to support their projects,” says Ralf Buehler Senior Vice-President, Sales & Marketing, at Premier Farnell and Newark element14. “This is the first AI configuration and selector tool to cover multiple vendors and allows users to buy the product quickly and easily – it should be the first place that engineers go to when starting or considering a project using AI.”
The tool allows searches for AI applications in the following sectors:
• Predictive maintenance
• Voice recognition
• Object or human recognition
• Motion recognition
• Machine learning
Engineers can then select the sensors they need from:
• Environmental sensing (heat, pressure etc.)
• Motion sensing
• Proximity sensing
• Audio sensing
• Image sensing
The AI configurator tool also allows engineers to select long- or short-range wireless communications and dynamically changes the options available, so users can always see which combinations of features are available and which are not.
Following product identification and selection, the AI Configurator tool provides a link directly to the selected products on the Newark element14 site, making the buying process quick and easy. The tool also provides links to additional relevant resources and content available throughout the Newark element14 site.
