MILWAUKEE, Sept. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Dedicated Computing, a leading original design manufacturer (ODM) of proprietary embedded computing systems, today announced two entries in the M1000 Family: the powerful M1300 Full-Size and M1200 Mid-Size acceleration platforms for artificial intelligence. The M1300 features scaling to support maximum performance, while the M1200 is optimized for reduced system height to fit cart-based and boom-mounted use cases.
The M1000 family is an optimized building block for medical device developers focused on data-driven healthcare applications. System longevity is a key value of the high-performance platform, with a purchase lifecycle of up to ten years and availability to medical device manufacturers. Dedicated Computing’s M1000 platform includes a security microcontroller unit, SmartNIC and a software stack developed and supported by NVIDIA. Runtime layers are included as the primary interface to end-user applications.
AI brings more capabilities to both medical and industrial devices. In healthcare, supporting a doctor’s experience with real-time AI inference has the potential to improve decisions and improve patient outcomes. The M1000 platform is originally designed for real-time inference for endoscopy applications. Dedicated’s AI acceleration platform is derived from the NVIDIA IGX platform and relies on NVIDIA IGX Orin to deliver up to 275 KI-TOPS and scale to over 600 KI-TOPS with an optional NVIDIA RTX A6000 GPU. The M1000 also features the NVIDIA ConnectX-7, a SmartNIC that delivers up to 200 Gbps of network bandwidth, and GPUDirect RDMA, a Magnum IO technology, for ultra-low latency processing. Combined with the power of the NVIDIA Clara Holoscan SDK, an end-to-end platform for real-time and streaming medical devices that accelerates developer workflows, NVIDIA IGX can help deliver secure, low-latency AI inference to to meet clinical requirements.
Medical device and industrial developers like Moon Surgical are building an entirely new category of robotic surgery powered by this AI computing and software framework. Such a platform enables companies to design and develop advanced autonomous systems and AI-powered medical devices with superior image, video and signal processing. You can develop global and diverse applications ranging from endoscopes to advanced surgical displays and more.
“The NVIDIA IGX platform and the Dedicated Computing M1300 with the NVIDIA Clara Holoscan SDK together offer the opportunity to accelerate Moon Surgical’s AI capabilities,” said David Noonan, CTO at Moon Surgical. “Having an off-the-shelf hardware and software system solution at this level allows our team to focus on developing novel features and algorithms, saving valuable time and capital.”
“It’s great to see our product development efforts benefiting our customers and their markets in such a powerful way,” said Phil Spivey, CEO of Dedicated Computing. “Our collaboration with NVIDIA on IGX will continue to improve our customers’ medical devices and facilities with AI on the edge for many years to come.”
Dedicated Computing’s modular hardware designs are diverse and proven, with an emphasis on robust data performance and physical durability for the environmental stresses of healthcare and industry. Decades of know-how include applications with AI, machine vision and advanced GPU processing in healthcare applications such as data acquisition for intravascular ultrasound, advanced eye measurements that eliminate subjective processes, laboratory and cyclotron automation, fluorescence image-guided and full-color 3D image reconstruction based on light instead of radiation. In the industrial market, example applications supported by dedicated computing include quality and safety product inspection, monitoring, and robot/cobot control.
