Dedicated Computing announces its M1000 AI Edge

MILWAUKEE, Sept. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, Dedicated Computing, a leading original design manufacturer (ODM) of proprietary embedded computing systems, announced two entries into the M1000 family: the high-performance M1300 full-size and M1200 mid-size AI acceleration platforms. The M1300 features a ladder to support maximum performance, while the M1200 is optimized for reduced system height to accommodate cart and boom 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 in the high-performance platform, with a purchase lifecycle of up to ten years and availability for medical device manufacturers. Dedicated Computing’s M1000 platform integrates a security microcontroller, SmartNIC, and software stack developed and supported by NVIDIA. Execution layers are included as the primary interface for end-user applications.

AI brings more functionality to medical and industrial devices. In healthcare, supporting a clinician’s experience with real-time AI inference has the potential to improve decisions and patient outcomes. The M1000 platform is initially intended for real-time inference for endoscopy applications. Dedicated’s AI acceleration platform is derived from the NVIDIA IGX platform and is based on NVIDIA IGX Orin to deliver up to 275 AI TOPS and scale up to over 600 AI TOPS with an NVIDIA RTX A6000 GPU optional. 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, streaming medical devices that accelerates developer workflows, NVIDIA IGX can help deliver secure AI inference and low latency to meet clinical demands.

Medical and industrial device developers, such as Moon Surgical, are creating a whole new category of robotic surgery, supported by this AI computing and software framework. Such a platform enables companies to imagine and build advanced autonomous systems and AI-powered medical devices that deliver superior image, video, and signal processing. They can create global and diverse applications ranging from endoscopes to advanced surgical displays and more.

“The NVIDIA IGX platform and the Dedicated Computing M1300, together with the NVIDIA Clara Holoscan SDK, together provide the ability to accelerate Moon Surgical’s AI capabilities,” said David Noonan, CTO of Moon Surgical. “An off-the-shelf hardware and software system solution at this level allows our team to focus on developing innovative features and algorithms, saving valuable time and capital.”

“It’s great to see our product development efforts benefit our customers and their markets in such an impactful way,” said Phil Spivey, CEO of Dedicated Computing. “Our work with NVIDIA on IGX will improve our customers’ medical devices and equipment with cutting-edge AI for many years to come.”

Dedicated Computing’s building block hardware designs are diverse and proven, emphasizing robust data performance and physical durability for the environmental rigors of medical and industrial computing. Decades of expertise includes applications including AI, machine vision and advanced GPU processing in healthcare applications such as data acquisition for intravascular ultrasound, advanced eye measurements that eliminate subjective processes , automation of laboratories and cyclotrons, reconstruction of 3D images guided by fluorescence and in color based on light instead of radiation. In the industrial market, examples of applications powered by dedicated computing include product quality and safety inspection, robot/cobot monitoring and control.
