Innodisk is assembling the underlying hardware and software needed for all-in-one AIoT cloud-to-edge that will streamline compatibility and shorten application implementation time.

The Taiwanese company provides industrial embedded flash and DRAM storage products.

The expanding number of AIoT devices is rapidly increasing development and management complexity. Creating a unified solution to this management problem requires focusing on specific vertical applications, ensuring industrial-strength quality throughout, and harnessing the expertise of subsidiaries.

Innodisk is extending its industrial memory and storage expertise, bringing these disparate services together in its AIoT all-round service for industrial applications. Consolidating through subsidiary expertise is proving a practical path to achieving these goals. The line-up includes:

  • Innodisk industrial-grade storage, memory, and expansion cards, as well as an array of cloud and edge-based software
  • Aetina AI edge computing and GPU-accelerated computing
  • Antzer in-vehicle technologies, with fleet management and data collection capabilities
  • Millitronic wireless networking, providing the wireless 60GHz, WiGig and Wifi 6 know-how for the backbone of IoT infrastructure
  • Sysinno air quality monitoring sensors to round out the measuring package

Together, the group can provide increasing depth of expertise in various verticals. Take autonomous vehicles for example, Innodisk helped implement a system to allow a human driver to intervene with remote vehicle control for one user. To meet the requirement of low latency and high throughput to ensure a smooth handover, it developed edge AI using Innodisk’s M.2 3ME4 MLC SSD, Antzer’s Can bus Mini PCIe card, and Millitronic’s 60GHz wireless gigabit hub.

The combination from Innodisk, infused with industrial quality and a focus on specific applications, checks the boxes for implementing AIoT free from the compatibility and management headaches usually associated with such complex systems. The AIoT all-round service provides an all-in-one package to smart automation, smart medical, smart infrastructure, smart warehouse and autonomous vehicles applications plus other emerging vertical applications.
