Reading time ( words)

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. jointly announces with Foxconn Industrial Internet the design, manufacture, and launch of Gloria AI Edge Box with the Qualcomm® Cloud AI 100 inference accelerator. BKAV Corporation is the first customer to deploy the solution.

“We are excited to work with Foxconn Industrial Internet and support BKAV to accelerate the adoption of intelligent edge applications,” said Keith Kressin, SVP & GM, Computing & Edge Cloud, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “We anticipate broad areas of adoption of Foxconn Industrial Internet’s Gloria platform using our leading performance per watt AI solution, the Qualcomm Cloud AI 100. We expect customer adoption of Gloria to include a variety of environments such as retail centers, warehouses, datacenters, and factories.”

This compact power-optimized system offers 70 trillion operations per second (TOPS) of artificial intelligence computing power with the Cloud AI 100 inference accelerator optimized for edge compute. Deployed with the Snapdragon® 865 Mobile Platform, Gloria is designed to support up to 24 FHD cameras for video analytic applications such as traffic analysis, security and smart retail.

“We are pleased to collaborate with Qualcomm Technologies to develop and announce availability of the outstanding Gloria AI Edge Box,” said Dr. Tai-Yu Chou, CTO of Foxconn Industrial Internet (“Fii”) and President of Fii’s Cloud Enterprise Solution Business Group.

5G Sub-6 and mmWAVE WAN connectivity options are available for various applications and installation fields based on the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System. Gloria is designed to support the option to utilize 5G, providing an optimal solution for broad-based deployments. Gloria is also designed to support indoor and outdoor high operating temperature environments.

“The Gloria on-premises AI Edge box manufactured by Foxconn Industrial Internet will allow us to demonstrate incredible performance with low power at a competitive price point,” said Nguyen Tu Quang, Chairman & CEO, BKAV. “Gloria will support us to accelerate AI applications in businesses and government, and revolutionize our work with smart cities, smart construction, and agriculture, among other verticals.” Engineering samples of Gloria will be available later this year, and commercial availability is expected in the second quarter of 2022.

Real Stories of Applied Advanced Analytics in the Electronics Manufacturing Smart Factory

08/26/2020 | Derek Ong, BscEE, Keysight Technologies
The smart factory is starting to become a reality, as part of the overarching Industry 4.0 paradigm. With the technology enablers, such as industrial IoT (IIoT) and cloud computing, electronics manufacturing operational technology (OT) are on a converging course with traditional information technology (IT). Beyond the challenges of data acquisition and transformation, the true “proof in the pudding” is in the quick ROI from advanced analytics. We will share examples of successful, profitable implementation of applied machine learning (ML) in the electronics manufacturing line, where measurement science meets data science.

Seeing Clearly: XR Headsets and Flex’s Reference Design at AWE

06/26/2018 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
At this year’s CES, they announced the launch of an extended reality (XR) reference design for the next generation of XR headsets. As the “sketch-to-scale” solutions provider, as they describe themselves, that designs and builds “intelligent products for a connected world,” they have now introduced an augmented reality (AR or, as we now call it, XR) reference design to reduce time to market for companies wishing to make and market XR devices.

Enabling an Intelligent Supply Chain for Electronics Manufacturing
