AMD Ryzen™ Embedded 5000 Desktop Processors Deliver Outstanding Performance

AIMB-522 is powered by AMD Ryzen™ Embedded 5000 processor with Zen 3 architecture for outstanding performance and high power efficiency. With instructions per clock, 16 cores, and L3 cache, Zen 3-based processors enable smart manufacturing, automated visual inspection, and smart surveillance, especially for latency-sensitive applications (these performance improvements are achieved without increasing power). consumption or TDP). In fact, the industry-leading 7nm process enables the AMD Ryzen™ Embedded 5000 series to achieve a 24% increase in energy efficiency and a 2.8x increase in performance compared to previous generation solutions and architectures, respectively.

High-speed interface facilitates camera applications

It is well known that computer vision applications require seamless integration of high-speed digital cameras. AIMB-522 has 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports and 8 USB 3.2 10Gbps ports, complete with high data throughput cameras. The transmission bandwidth rate is up to 350MB/s, 60 FPS, which enables AIMB-522 to integrate more than 10 high-quality video cameras without the need for additional peripheral cards. For additional interface needs, the onboard PCI-Express x4 slot flexibly supports additional cards required for more camera equipment or industrial controllers.

 Strong Scalability Supports Integrated Industrial Applications

Advantech AIMB-522 supports 1 x PCI-Express x16 Gen4 bus standard, suitable for applications with high graphics requirements. Additionally, its 2 PCI-Express x4 slots allow expansion of robot controller cards, while the onboard M.2 M-Key socket supports a high-speed SSD for RTOS operations. This scalability to industrial peripherals enables the AIMB-522 to enhance the management of controllers and upgrades to factory automation, as well as accelerate artificial intelligence imaging processing.
