Antmicro becomes Nvidia® Jetson™ Ecosystem Partner
Antmicro, an international research and development company known for its work with emerging technologies in embedded and cyber-physical systems, has announced today that it has become an official Jetson™ Ecosystem Partner, thus joining efforts with NVIDIA® to co-market the NVIDIA Jetson TK1 and TX1 Embedded Platform and Antmicro’s development services around this family of products.
As an NVIDIA Jetson Ecosystem Partner, Antmicro offers comprehensive services to help customers take full advantage of the NVIDIA Tegra® embedded CPU line. With advanced vision systems being one of the company’s highlights, the CUDA®-enabled Tegra K1 and its follow-up, X1, with 192 Kepler™ and 256 Maxwell™ GPU cores respectively are the perfect match in designing state-of-the-art embedded devices requiring uncompromised graphics and video performance.
“Already since 2010 – when NVIDIA’s breakthrough high-performance embedded Tegra 2 CPU was made widely available for general embedded applications via a SoM from our mutual partner, Toradex – Antmicro has been helping customers to successfully implement high-performance applications taking advantage of Tegra’s multiple ARM cores and powerful integrated graphics.”, says Michael Gielda, Business Development Manager of Antmicro. “By becoming an official NVIDIA Jetson Ecosystem Partner and applying the Jetson TK1 and TX1 Embedded Platform’s capabilities, we can further strengthen the offering in this segment.”
Antmicro uses the opportunities brought by the Jetson Embedded Platform’s advanced computational capabilities through CUDA and other parallel processing paradigms for computer vision systems, deep learning and GPGPU programming, enabling new areas which require substantial computational capabilities in a small form factor such as robotics, drones, defense, ADAS, medical imaging or avionics.
For an example of Antmicro’s application of the NVIDIA® Jetson™ Tegra® K1 in an automotive set-up, see the MOPED experimental platform for computer vision research featured at Toradex’ booth 639 in Hall 1 at Embedded World 2016. At the same booth, Antmicro is also showing its industrial Android™ distribution demo featuring NVIDIA® Tegra® K1.
Since 1993, NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) has pioneered the art and science of visual computing. The company’s technologies are transforming a world of displays into a world of interactive discovery — for everyone from gamers to scientists, and consumers to enterprise customers. Recently, NVIDIA introduced the Jetson TX1, a credit card-sized module that harnesses the power of machine learning to enable a new generation of smart, autonomous machines that can learn. NVIDIA’s embedded solutions address the challenge of creating a new wave of millions of smart devices — drones that fly autonomously; compact security surveillance systems that don’t just scan crowds but identify suspicious activity; and robots that don’t just perform tasks but tailor them to individuals’ habits — by incorporating capabilities such as machine learning, computer vision, navigation and more.
