EBV Elektronik, an Avnet company (NASDAQ: AVT), today announced the signing of a new distribution franchise agreement for the EMEA region with Hailo, a leading edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) chipmaker.
Hailo offers a wide range of AI accelerators including the innovative Hailo-8™ AI processor and its M.2 and Mini PCIe high-performance AI acceleration modules. The Hailo-8, featuring up to 26 Tera Operations Per Second (TOPS) at a typical power consumption of 2.5 W, delivers superior edge performance with industry-leading power efficiency and enables edge devices to run sophisticated deep-learning applications at scale.
Hailo’s solutions connect to board-level platforms via the PCIe interface. This allows for high-performance and power-efficient AI solutions when used together with the Intel/AMD x86 or the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4, as well as with ARM-based processors, such as those manufactured by NXP Semiconductors, STMicroelectronics, and Renesas. Another key product leveraging the advantages of Hailo’s AI technology is the MicroSys Electronics miriac® AIP-S32G274A embedded SoM (system-on-module), which is based on NXP processors and includes support for the Hailo-8 AI acceleration modules.
“This agreement with EBV is a major opportunity for our AI technology to gain greater penetration across Europe and beyond, in a range of markets including industry 4.0, automotive, smart retail, smart cities, and smart home applications,” said Orr Danon, CEO of Hailo
