[Munich, Germany, June 10, 2022] AI at the edge will have a huge impact on many vertical industries, including robotics, smart cities, healthcare, industrial, retail, energy and agriculture, to name a few. AI for these applications involves both cloud and edge processing. Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) today announced the availability of AIROC™ Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® connectivity solutions for the NVIDIA Jetson edge AI platform.

NVIDIA AI

NVIDIA Jetson is the leading edge AI computing platform with more than 1 million developers. Smart machine builders and AI developers can build and deploy high-quality software-defined capabilities for embedded and edge devices, powered by AI pre-trained models, developer SDKs, and cloud-native technologies spanning the full range of Jetson products.

Edge AI devices require reliable and instant Wi-Fi cloud connectivity for lifecycle management functions such as deploying AI models via OTA updates. Infineon’s AIROC Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2-in-1 product family offers industry-leading high-performance Wi-Fi 6/6E solutions and low-power Wi-Fi 5 solutions that can be integrated into the full range of NVIDIA Jetson system modules provide high-quality connectivity for developers, partners and customers. Infineon AIROC products can provide robust connectivity and seamless data transfer for edge AI devices, while achieving the advantages of low power consumption, low latency and greater coverage.

Sivaram Trikutam, Vice President of the Wi-Fi Product Line at Infineon Technologies, said, “In congested network environments, AI devices often experience connection interruptions or low data throughput, resulting in poor user experience. Infineon AIROC Wi-Fi -Fi series can provide low latency, robust connection and high data throughput transmission, resulting in extremely stable system performance. We are happy to cooperate with NVIDIA so that our customers can use Infineon AIROC Wi-Fi solutions that leverage the power of the NVIDIA Jetson platform.”

“The NVIDIA Jetson platform provides customers with an easy-to-use, powerful tool to develop and deploy edge AI devices for a wide variety of applications,” said Durga Peddireddy, business leader, NVIDIA Jetson Ecosystem Partners. “With Infineon’s proven With reliable and innovative Wi-Fi solutions, customers using the NVIDIA Jetson platform can easily create high-performance, AI-enabled devices.”

From live-action capture to computer-generated imagery or video, such as AR/VR in gaming and industrial applications, many AI applications require real-time mixing of effects. This requires that the device must have the ability to process and transmit data at the same time. In these applications, high-throughput and low-latency wireless transmission is critical. Infineon’s Wi-Fi 6E solution operates on the 6-7GHz frequency band to minimize latency and prevent connection interruptions due to wireless network congestion. Combined with the fast processing power of the NVIDIA Jetson platform, AI-enabled devices can provide the best user experience.
