The AI platform by Kontron is now available as a box PC based on an Intel Atom x7-E3950 processor. The KBox can be integrated directly into existing X86 landscapes. The integrated Google Coral Edge TPU enables up to 4 Tops. In addition, the TPU supports small and low power applications and requires only 1 Watt for 2 Tops. Unlike the Kontron AI platform based on the NXP i.MX8M, which is available as a board product, the KBox A-203-AI-GC can be placed directly in the control cabinet or attached to a machine without any preparation. The AI platform runs on Debian Linux, is compatible with TensorFlow Lite, and comes with application examples.
