UP Squared Pro: AI Edge Solution for Industrial Automation

Eindhoven, The Netherlands, 1 February 2021 – UP Squared Pro from AAEON’s UP Bridge the Gap brand features Intel® Celeron® N3350, Pentium® N4200, and Atom™ E3950 processors (formerly known as Apollo Lake) to bring speed, intelligence, and flexibility to Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications. UP Squared Pro is a rebuild based on UP Squared utilizing the same core design in hardware and software and enriching it with more industrial features. Developers can migrate their design on UP Squared to UP Squared Pro in no time. With 5G connectivity and industrial capabilities, this single board computer takes edge solutions to the PRO level.AAEON, a leading manufacturer of AI Edge hardware solutions, announces the latest addition to their UP Bridge the Gap brand, the UP Squared Pro. Powered by the Intel Atom E3950/Celeron N3350/Pentium N4200 processors (formerly known as Apollo Lake), the UP Squared Pro delivers power-efficient performance and specialized capabilities for industrial applications, such as automation, robotics, drones, machine vision, and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

UP Squared Pro is performance optimized for Industrial IoT thanks to Intel processors, FPGAs, and accelerators. It provides bounded maximum latency for scheduled traffic through switched Ethernet networks via Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN). Real-time TSN support is offered via two Gigabit LAN ports. It also comes with 12V-24V DC-in lockable power connector and a range of industrial I/O connectors and ports.

The introduction of 5G connectivity enables high speed, ultra-low latency, and reliable transmission of data for the connected masses of IoT devices. With multiple new inputs available, 5G will supercharge Artificial Intelligence (AI) models and allow for exciting new applications.

UP Squared Pro harnesses the power of 5G connectivity by offering pre-trained AI models and pre-optimized kernels to increase AI performance. VPU extensions are available for Intel® Movidius® Myriad™ X and the upcoming Third Generation Intel® Movidius® VPU, so UP Squared Pro can deliver powerful video analytics with multiple video streams for surveillance and other video-centric applications. Combined with Intel AI Accelerator and the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ Toolkit, UP Squared Pro accelerates Computer Vision and Deep Learning Inference from Edge to Cloud.

To meet a wide range of use cases, UP Squared Pro offers a variety of expandability features such as 40-pin HAT expansion, SATA III (6.0 Gbps), M.2 E key, M.2 2280 M key, and M.2 3052 B key. Plus, it’s ready to connect for 5G, AI accelerators, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.

Achieve complete industrial automation with advanced AI applications utilizing powerful media-performance and immersive 3D graphics. With memory capacity up to 8GB of LPDD4, data processing is now faster than ever. Unleash the future of industrial automation and AI vision with 5G connectivity and take Edge solutions to the PRO level.

UP Squared Pro is now available for pre-order on the UP Shop. AAEON also offers customization services for the UP Squared Pro to provide the best fit for any application. For more information about customization and OEM/ODM services, visit www.aaeon.com or contact an AAEON representative.
