Description

EPC-R3720 is an Industrial embedded server based on NXP’s i.MX 8M Plus Processor. This is an ARM® Cortex®-A53 i.MX8MPlus-based secured, compact-sized, low-power consumed Edge AI Box, best for your Edge AI Inference with Neural Network Accelerator up to 2.3 TOPS, HDR-Capable ISP of 375 MPixels/s, with a wide range of I/O extension and oriented for industrial automation.

The EPC-R3720 can be securely mounted onto desks and walls, and thereby optimizing your work area, at trade shows, presentations, and promotions, etc. FANLESS design is helpful to be used in an environment where temperature demand is critical. Unit preinstalled EMAC OE, Android 9, or Yocto OS to meet ready-to-market demand and provide competitive advantages.

It is a perfect platform for IoT, M2M, Home Automation, Network Security, Digital Signage, Public transportation and many other industrial applications.

EMAC is a global leader in ARM system development, with Single Board Computers, embedded servers, System-on-Modules and custom carrier board embedded systems.  The Embedded server (Server-In-a-Box “SIB”) is an ideal alternative small solution to needing a computer located in a size constrained space, with minimal temperature controls. An Embedded Server is a small system offering the proper amount of processing for a remote location. This IoT Edge type computer has enough storage and the proper connections to ensure data can be aggregated and condensed, and then efficiently uploaded to a larger data storage location, such as a Cloud service or another server. Using the available network connections, be them Wired Ethernet, Wireless WiFi or 802.11, Bluetooth, Cellular modem or satellite modem.
