Avalue Technology, a global industrial PC solution provider and a Titanium member of the Intel Internet of Things Solutions Alliance, endeavours to provide a complete range of smart retail, smart healthcare, smart manufacturing, smart transportation and embedded solutions.
According to global market research firm Markets&Markets’ forecast in February this year, the global IoT market is projected to grow from $300 billion in 2021 to $650.5 billion in 2026, with a CAGR of 16.7%.
Retail, manufacturing, and energy and public utilities remain areas with greater demand for IoT. Extremely low operating and standby power, high-speed connection, and better big data analysis and process capability, are critical factors for success in the IoT market. Lining up a full spectrum of IoT products from PCBs, box PC to touchscreen system, Avalue satisfies the requirements of new-generation industrial IoT and edge computing.
Avalue recently released the semi-rugged NUC-TGU and fast-to-implement ACS10-TGU box PCs. Both PCs are powered by Intel 11th-Gen Tiger Lake UP3, which is specifically designed for IoT-related operations. High-performance CPU with Intel Iris Xe graphics card boosts performance speed by up to 2.95x, and single-thread and multi-thread performances are increased by 23% and 19% respectively.
The combined effect of the giant leap in computing performance, outstanding graphics chip/ media and graphics effect, and real-time low-latency processing, enables Avalue NUC-TGU and ACS10-TGU to accomplish critical tasks requiring uninterrupted operation and powerful simulation and analysis functions, accelerating businesses’ push into AI visual analysis, deep learning, smart retail, precision healthcare, industrial automation and smart city.
Besides their superb performance and quick response, both NUC-TGU and ACS10-TGU are compact and easy to set up, and have highly expandable I/O interfaces and flexible storage design, and support high-resolution graphics. Furthermore, their stable high-speed connectivity makes them ideal for IoT applications that require real-time feedback and analysis.
With its comprehensive architecture, ACS10-TGU has the advantage in development cost and short implementation time. It supports operating temperature up to 50℃, passed 50G shock test, up to 32GB 3200MHz DDR4 memory, M.2 Key B/E expansion slot, and a diverse range of I/O ports (2 x COM, 6 x USB ports, 2 x DP++ and 2 x Ethernet ports). ACS10-TGU is also small and compact, and can be implemented quickly, making it ideal for retail kiosk and digital signage, smart office access system and video surveillance.
In comparison to ACS10-TGU, NUC-TGU also provides excellent space utilisation with its lightweight and thin design. It is more targeted at semi-industrial applications and customised services, allowing for versatile design in logo and body colour. It provides up to 32GB 3200MHz DDR4 memory, and diverse range of I/O connection (2 x RS232/422/485, 6 x front and back USB ports, 2 x HDMI 2.0b, 1 x Line-out and 2.5GbE/1GbE dual Ethernet ports).
In terms of installation, NUC-TGU box PC provides a choice of desktop stand, wall mount or DIN rail, and a Kensington lock to protect system equipment. NUC-TGU semi-rugged system is especially suitable for use in gaming/ lottery, edge computing, traffic flow analysis and facial recognition in smart retail, and telemedicine in smart healthcare.
Despite a slowdown in the global economy, there is continuous investment in inelastic demand, such as IoT, unmanned stores, 5G and smart manufacturing. In fact, in the last two years, the unmanned store concept has driven huge growth in demand for automated products, interactive multimedia kiosk, digital signage and pandemic-related applications.
With their light weight, compactness, high expandability, excellent performance, quick response and stable high-speed transmission, Avalue’s semi-rugged NUC-TGU and quick-to-implement ACS10-TGU box PCs enable quick setup anytime, anywhere while providing a complete range of customised services, making them ideal solutions.
