The GPU has been part of computing ever since the first pixel hit a display. Still, its role has changed dramatically from its original function to embedded GPUs, lifelike 3D gaming and now general-purpose GPU computing.

This article takes a deep dive into this critical hardware component that powers AI, computer vision, and a whole slew of futuristic computer goodness. We will attempt to sum up what the GPU is, why it’s important, how they apply to industrial computers, what it’s used for, why you might need one, and the options available when picking them.

During the COVID 19 outbreak, by deploying automated thermal imaging systems powered by Cincoze GM-1000, it successfully performed mask detection, face recognition, image search, and footprint tracking through machine vision, helping streamline the process and lowering labor costs. Check out the full story.

Definition: What is a GPU?

The graphics processing unit (GPU) is the hardware component that takes instructions for visual display and puts the pixels on the screen where they are meant to go.

According to Intel, GPUs are designed for parallel processing and are, “used in a wide range of applications, including graphics and video rendering. Although they’re best known for their capabilities in gaming, GPUs are becoming more popular for use in creative production and artificial intelligence (AI).” 

That last part is important because the modern general-purpose GPU is no longer limited to just displaying images on the screen. It has become the powerhouse behind the processing of complex machine inputs that are possible but just too slow for the CPU. So how did this come about?

Cincoze Embedded Industrial Computers – At the Heart of Smart Security Monitoring

December 10, 2020 – Modern life is becoming more convenient as more smart devices join the  interconnected world. However, when everything is connected, security risks increase, and people have started to pay attention. Smart security monitoring falls roughly into two categories: mobile and fixed. Mobile applications in harsh in-vehicle environments must withstand long-term stress caused by constant vibration and temperature extremes in public safety vehicles such as police cars, ambulances and fire trucks, and public transportation such as trains and cruise ships and airplanes. Fixed monitoring encompasses indoor and outdoor applications such as central monitoring centers and traffic monitoring. Regardless of the environment, smart surveillance systems need to provide functions like image and object recognition, motion detection, and screen warnings to aid disaster response, traffic management, information collection, and data integration.

High-Speed IP Cameras for Smooth and Reliable Operation

Today’s high-speed wired IP cameras use Power-over-Ethernet, drawing power through existing network cabling, rather than requiring a separate power source. In the smart surveillance system architecture, multiple IP cameras connected simultaneously cause additional pressure on the network resulting in unstable image transmission and insufficient PoE power supply inhibiting normal operation. Cincoze DIAMOND series embedded industrial computers have built-in multiple IEEE802.3at PoE+ compatible ports, each rated up to 25.5 W, which can meet each high-speed IP camera’s power requirements and stably drive all connected terminal devices.

Fast Storage and Backup

Monitoring and analyzing incoming video streams is just the first step, recording, storing, and backing up the stored data is also required. Cincoze DIAMOND series embedded industrial computers support SSD, HDD, and mSATA storage options and feature a PCIe x4 NVMe SSD slot, which can transfer and access large amounts of data quickly. RAID options include RAID 0/1/5/10, providing the most effective, safe, repairable, and cost-effective storage. For quick access to emergency footage, the storage area is accessible from the front maintenance panel. Data is easy to collect, the system is easier to maintain, and plug-and-play is supported.

Ultimate Performance and Safety Certification

In addition to recording and playing video, smart surveillance systems also need to automatically analyze video content to detect people and objects in real-time to provide near-instantaneous alerts to react to incidents quickly. Cincoze DIAMOND series has options for 9/8th Gen Intel® Xeon® and Core™ CPUs to provide real-time analysis of images, rapid notification and warnings, and monitor on-site conditions. DIAMOND series is designed for wide temperature range of -40–70 ℃, shock resistance of 5/50 Grms, and has safety mechanisms such as electrostatic discharge, overcurrent, and overvoltage protection. Many models have EN 50155 (EN 50121-3-2 only) and E-Mark, with the double certification meeting the installation requirements in various vehicles and monitoring systems.

The Cincoze DIAMOND series can be equipped with additional expansion modules, providing multiple I/O options for different monitoring setups. The DIAMOND series is a world-class embedded industrial computer suitable for any intelligent monitoring system from transportation and commercial monitoring to plant and power grid control rooms.

Cincoze DE-1000 Powers Train Carriage Passenger Information System

Introduction

A state-owned railway company in northern Europe required a passenger information system (PIS) in its train carriages to deliver real-time passenger information, such as route details, arrival and departure times, and advertisements. The railway company wanted the PIS to engage with passengers and enhance their travel experience. They needed a rugged embedded PC as a media player because it offers flexible setup and more robust, more reliable operation than run-of-the-mill media players.

A Cincoze partner set up this railway carriage PIS. They specialize in providing visual information and digital signage systems that broadcast digital content to audiences just about anywhere, including taxis, buses, trains, retail stores, and clinics. These digital signage systems aim to enhance customer engagement and convenience, with multiple displays throughout the installation location for maximum coverage.

Customer’s Requirements

Network Connectivity and Multiple Display Options
The PIS architecture is multi-layered. The first layer is the automatic vehicle system that collects GPS data and connects to the LTE network. That vehicle system connects to a master embedded system (DE-1000) that controls eight client systems (DE-1000) installed in eight separate carriages. The master embedded system delivers content to the client computers through Ethernet with ruggedized M12 connectors that guarantee robust communications. Each client system connects to an ultra-wide bar LCD monitor in the carriage.

Low Power Consumption and Shock/Vibration Resistance
As the media players only display digital content, the customer chose our power-efficient DE-1000 for its low power consumption. Additionally, the computer must also withstand the shock and vibration in the rolling stock environment, and the rugged design of the DE-1000 delivers this requirement flawlessly.

Why Cincoze?

Modular Expansion Capability
The DE-1000 houses a wide variety of inputs and outputs and allows for additional expansion. Two Mini-PCIe slots (one with mSATA support) offer additional expansion options, including wireless LAN, 3G/LTE, GPS, and storage. Through Cincoze CMI and CFM expansion, the DE-1000 can support further I/O like 4 x LAN/M12 expansion (optional) and other functions, including power ignition and power over Ethernet (optional). Moreover, DE-1000 offers additional models with one (DE-1001) or two (DE-1002) PCI/PCIe slots to integrate with various add-on cards.

Power Efficient Design
The DE-1000 is the ideal solution for uninterrupted continuous operation. It features an Intel® Atom™ processor, delivering excellent processing power with only 10 W power consumption. The DE-1000 serves markets that demand cost-effective and power-efficient systems without compromising on performance.

High Reliability for Harsh Environments
Rolling stock is considered a harsh environment because of the shocks and constant vibration. To conquer this challenge, the DE-1000 has a unibody chassis, cable- and jumper-free, and integrated anti-vibration measures and supports operating temperatures from -25 to 70°C. The DE-1000 is EN 50121-3-2 certified for safety rolling stock standards, passing all stringent tests to ensure stable and reliable performance.
