In recent years, "Industrial Internet" has been repeatedly mentioned at the national level, and has been included in the government work report for five consecutive years. With the continuous development and implementation of technologies such as artificial intelligence, 5G, big data and semiconductors, industrial intelligence has become a new trend in the "Industrial Internet". As an iteration of traditional industrial gateways, intelligent gateways rely on the unique advantages endowed by artificial intelligence to better drive the industrial transformation of the Industrial Internet.
So how to develop an intelligent gateway?
A domestic industrial gateway equipment manufacturer plans to launch a lightweight AI intelligent gateway product, which can be used in various scenarios such as industrial equipment monitoring, industrial site dynamic environment monitoring, and remote inspection. In the selection stage of the main control platform, the user mainly faces the superimposed requirements of high computing power and rich functional interfaces. Its main control not only needs to support RS232, RS485, CAN, PCIe, SATA and other conventional interfaces, but also needs to support high-frequency and floating-point operations, which can realize the operation of local lightweight artificial intelligence algorithms, so as to perform local analysis and analysis of industrial field data. Smart decision.
Users put forward the following specific requirements according to the product pre-research goals:
Support PCIe3.0 and SATA3.0, connect hard disk to realize local data storage
High computing power CPU and support NPU
Support camera for image data collection
Support multi-channel RS232, RS485, DI, DO, CAN and other common industrial interfaces to communicate with field devices
Support WAN, LAN, 4G, 5G, WIFI and other communication methods or interfaces, which is convenient for networking and communication
The stability, reliability and security of the board to cope with the long-term stable operation of the industrial site
Rich functional interface
With PCIe3.0, SATA3.0, CAN-FD, USB3.0 and other high-speed interfaces, 2 Gigabit Ethernet and up to 10 UART interfaces, it also supports wired network, 4G/5G, dual-band WiFi and other communication methods. Meet the data acquisition and communication functions of conventional industrial gateways.
Lightweight Artificial Intelligence
The main frequency of 2.0GHz and the NPU with 1 TOPS computing power can realize local lightweight artificial intelligence, perform local intelligent analysis on the collected industrial equipment operation data and make corresponding adjustments, thereby improving the operation and management efficiency of industrial equipment.
Powerful image processing capability
It supports the camera to collect images, and analyzes and judges the images through algorithms to achieve functions such as personnel identification, intelligent fire monitoring, and remote inspection.
As the core component of the intelligent gateway, the FET3568-C industrial-grade core board has undergone rigorous environmental temperature tests, pressure tests, and long-term stability operation tests to ensure stable and reliable operation in complex industrial environments and effectively reduce the failure rate of the whole machine. , reduce operation and maintenance costs.
At present, the FET3568-C core board and supporting development boards are on sale.
