1. Industrial Automation & Robotics driven by Rugged Edge Computing
As automation and robotics become smarter, faster, and more efficient, so does the amount of data generate. IoT devices, such as cameras, have become more sophisticated with higher image quality. All these smart IoT sensors and devices need a central computing unit to send data reliably for an AI algorithm to work efficiently. Industrial rugged edge computers are purpose-built to be deployed onto factory floors and provide the necessary processing power to enable real-time data analysis, AI inferencing, and accelerate business decisions. Similarly, in a case study, a Premio client who is a pioneer in precision automation needed a rugged embedded system to integrate their metrology platform. Our machine vision computer was the perfect fit to compute highly precise imagery at high speeds. Find out more about this case study here >>
2. Edge AI with Hardware acceleration
Edge AI will be an ever-growing topic as we enter Industry 4.0. Traditional AI inferencing accelerators, like GPU and CPU, are general-purpose computing solutions that have limitations and reach a threshold for edge computing. Power budgeting, mechanical and thermal thresholds are limiting factors that put a performance bottleneck on Edge AI. However, a new platform has been developed to precisely address these restrictions. Premio has partnered with Hailo to develop a new rugged edge solution. M.2 DSAs (Domain Specific Architectures) revolutionize Edge AI with its immense capabilities to process deep learning and inference workloads at the edge without exceeding total cost of ownership.

4. Suppliers Are Just as Important as Customers
With the executive signing of the CHIPS Act of 2022, the United States has recognized the utmost importance of maintaining leadership in semiconductor manufacturing. The CHIPS Act will strengthen the domestic supply chain and allow major OEMs to consider deepening partnerships with local suppliers. Premio helps alleviate the issues that system integrators and OEM designers face by providing solutions in:
- Research and Development
- Manufacturing Footprint
- Sourcing and Supply Chain
- Alliances and Go-To-Market Capabilities
AI Edge Inference Computer (RCO-6000-CML)
Premio’s 10th Gen Intel AI Edge Inference Computer (RCO-6000-CML) brings to market a modular architecture for specific edge applications. The top module consists of the Industrial Fanless PC with dual Universal brackets support up to 8x IoT ports, 2x Hot-Swappable SSDs Bays, and supports Intel 10th Gen CML or XEON W processors with ECC memory. The bottom module allows for the EDGEBoost Nodes where end users can mix and match different nodes that best suit their needs. From 2x U.2 NVMe canister bricks for maximum storage capacity to dedicated NVIDIA RTX GPU support to enable AI inferencing, the EDGEBoost Nodes are performance accelerators that consolidate complex Edge AI workloads.
Machine Vision Computer (VCO-6000-CFL)
AI Vision drives most if not all major industrial automation technologies. The Machine Vision Computer (VCO-6000-CFL) is purpose-built to be rugged and support full-length GPUs to enable real-time imagery-based AI workloads. The VCO-6000-CFL supports common vision camera interfaces like GigE Vision and USB3 Vision, has a single-sided I/O design, on-board M.2 NVMe, and PCIe expansion scalability.
Small Form Factor PC (RCO-3000-CFL)
Small, yet powerful. The SFF (Small form factor) PC follows a multicore socket type design while in an ultra-compact enclosure. This unique edge solution delivers high processing power in a reliable rugged architecture for the most space-constrained deployments. It is equipped with programmable isolated GPIO, a hot-swappable SSD tray, and a universal I/O bracket module to consolidate the demanding workloads in a limited environment.
Fanless Mini Computer (BCO-2000-WHL)
Based on Premio’s industrial 3.5” SBC (Single Board Computer), the fanless mini computer utilizes Intel’s 8th Gen Mobile-U processors and 2x expansion slots for universal I/O flexibility. The BCO-2000-WHL is a rugged edge solution for space limited deployments such as smart kiosks.
IP65K Modular Touchscreen Panel PC (VIO-200)
