Advantech product sales manager Alex Kuo demonstrates how smart factories powered by Advantech’s iFactory solution rely on data analysis and visualization to sort through vast amounts of information to make real-time decisions for optimizing energy efficiency.
At the top of an embedded designer’s wish list for mass storage capabilities is usually high reliability. Also on the list is a need for high mechanical resistance to shock and vibration, which often rules out the use of removable storage in favor of soldered-down ball grid array (BGA) devices.
As more and more solid state drives are being deployed in enterprise and industrial environments, an effective power failure protection scheme must be implemented to avert the damages that unexpected power interruptions could bring.
Smart manufacturing is bringing sweeping changes to automated production and delivery of goods, and it’s leading to breakthroughs with artificial intelligence (AI) for many use cases. As applications of AI in smart manufacturing grow, so does demand for AI-enabled industrial servers with GPUs handling inference and training workloads.
Industrial end customers are embracing the value of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). In doing so, the need for memory and storage is growing substantially. As more and more data is collected at the edge—instead of sent to the cloud—edge processing is becoming vital.
