Fremont California. – November 7, 2023 – Lanner Electronics USA today announced it has joined the SiMa.ai Partner Program as an OEM partner. With this agreement Lanner collaborates with SiMa.ai to build an Edge Platform, featuring Lanner Edge AI appliances LEC-2290 and EAI-I730 and SiMa.ai’s Machine Learning System on a Chip (MLSoC) based PCIe cards, and SiMa.ai’s Palette™ Edgematic software.
SiMa.ai’s MLSoC hardware combined with its Palette™ software delivers a purpose-built platform with push button ease of use, enabling effortless ML deployment and scaling at the embedded edge that offers 10x better performance with the industry’s lowest power consumption in minutes.
This partnership will accelerate Lanner Electronics’ reach into AI/ML driven edge computing for smart city and critical infrastructure designs with SiMa.ai’s high performance, power efficient MLSoC. The simplicity and performance of SiMa.ai’s MLSoC combined with Lanner compact and scalable Edge AI appliances produces a power efficient and cost effective approach to deploying to the very edge of the enterprise. SiMa.ai’s Palette software pushbutton compilation enables rapid design updates for changing model and pipeline requirements.
Lanner joined the SiMa.ai Partner Program to help meet global customer demand for SiMa’s effortless edge ML system in the market, extending Lanner’s vision to service the edge AI market with the latest innovative technology to truly bring about a resolution on how industry and enterprises manage and leverage video data to add intelligence to their business operations and provide greater information for intelligent management of people and resources. Together, the two companies are delivering the next level of edge AI/ML with the market leading power efficiency of the SiMa.ai MLSoC providing up to 100 ToPs of inference performance in a rugged and compact form factor.
Due to the large amount of video data generated from multiple cameras, edge AI machine learning solutions are encountering real-time video performance issues with limitations in space, power, and cost. The solution: offload real-time multi-camera video analytics processing to an Edge Platform. With push button performance, we enable the most efficient Edge Machine Learning Platform by connecting a higher number of cameras per appliance, processing videos with a higher frame rate per second, and receiving higher resolution camera data. The SiMa.ai MLSoC™ Platform is purpose-built for machine learning and is transforming the embedded edge market.
“SiMa.ai is the clear leader in bringing computer vision intelligence to any device in the edge market through its remarkable fusion of hardware and software innovation,” said Terence Chou, said General Manager at Lanner USA. “In supporting the industry’s widest range of ML models and ML frameworks for computer vision, SiMa ensures our customers can focus on rapid innovation versus implementation.”
“The Edge represents the next frontier of AI innovation and the market needs purpose-built solutions to power and deploy computer vision on a massive scale,” said Krishna Rangasayee, Founder and CEO of SiMa.ai. “Any type of device should be able to easily use computer vision intelligence, which is why we are committed to building a robust partner ecosystem focused on giving more organizations around the world access to our best in class SiMa.ai MLSoC and Palette software.”
