Incredibuild Launches New Automotive Solution
Incredibuild, maker of the leading development acceleration platform for Developers and DevOps teams, announced today the launch of Incredibuild for Automotive. Incredibuild for Automotive provides significant acceleration and support for the leading software development tools used in the ever-growing Software-Defined Vehicle (SDV) industry – including QNX, AOSP, Yocto, Automotive Grade Linux, Qt, Jenkins, Gitlab, Github Actions and more.

The automotive industry, historically hardware-centric, is experiencing a rapid shift to software-focused technologies, especially with the move towards Electric Vehicles (EVs) and Autonomous Vehicles (AVs). As automakers look to scale these technologies to meet demand and speed time to market, Incredibuild offers the increased compute power availability necessary for automotive software teams to rev up their development at dazzling speeds, while adhering to the highest safety and security regulations.

Incredibuild for Automotive rapidly accelerates automotive development on-prem and in the cloud, empowering dev teams to focus on quality, safety, and innovation while meeting key milestones. Incredibuild for Automotive includes notable features that enhance productivity and deliver the quality consumers expect: integrated with Incredibuild's industry-leading virtualized parallel distribution, newly launched patent-pending Build Cache technology lets development teams store previous build data, drastically reducing build times and improving performance; and flexible licensing allows for better resource management, resulting in cost and time savings with zero waste. Another key result: consumers will experience quicker updates to ADAS and other real-time operating systems with no compromise on quality or safety.

"The automotive industry is being driven forward at an incredible pace, and we are right there with them, helping boost software innovation and efficiency to help deliver better and faster. "We appreciate the car industry's commitment to security, safety, and overall performance and quality, and that's exactly what our software acceleration platform provides. In today's economic environment, releasing software faster and more efficiently is key, especially when it comes to 'Software on Wheels.'"

Regev Yativ, CRO of Incredibuild

Auto manufacturers developing automotive software as well as independent software vendors can utilize Incredibuild for Automotive when helping build next-generation automotive technologies such as self-driving cars and smart cockpits. Additionally, by decreasing the amount of hardware required for faster development, Incredibuild for Automotive reduces the environmental impact of production itself, cutting down on carbon emissions.

The launch comes on the heels of the company's debut of Incredibuild10, its most advanced Dev Acceleration Platform. Incredibuild works with all the world's leading cloud providers, including Microsoft Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud Platform. Its cloud optimization automatically spins the best mix of on-demand and spot resources up and down, enabling organizations to use smaller and more affordable machines while maintaining optimal performance.

Aetina Launches New ASIC-Based Edge AI System Powered by Blaize

Aetina | December 08, 2022

Aetina, an edge AI solution provider that offers embedded computing hardware and software for AI and IoT, has launched a new ASIC-based edge AI system powered by the programmable Blaize® Pathfinder P1600 Embedded System on Module (SoM). The Aetina AI inference system—AIE-CP1A-A1—is a small-sized embedded computer designed for different computer vision applications, including object detection, human motion detection, and automated inspection. The AIE-CP1A-A1 model features the small form factor Blaize® Pathfinder P1600 Embedded SoM, ideal for rugged and challenging environments and embedded systems that need extended temperature ranges. It features Dual ARM Cortex A53 processors, 16 GSP cores providing 16 TOPS AI performance, and the benefits of low memory bandwidth and low latency, making it capable of accelerating neural network (NN) deployment and deep learning (DL) process. Based on the Blaize Graph Streaming Processor (GSP®) architecture, the Pathfinder enables energy-efficient processing power ideal for AI inferencing workloads at the edge, easily plugs into a custom carrier board, and runs autonomously or integrated within a larger system. Due to its compact, fanless design and multiple I/O ports, the AIE-CP1A-A1 can fit both commercial and industrial-grade AI-powered systems that involve vision AI-related inference. The Blaize Pathfinder also supports H.264/H.265 video encoder and decoder, making it compatible with different sensors to run quick image recognition and video analytics tasks. Aetina offers customized carrier boards and computer cases for sophisticated system integration and chip-down design service to provide other kinds of embedded computing models, such as single-board computer (SBC) with the Blaize Pathfinder in addition to regular box PCs. Moreover, Aetina helps developers convert their AI inference models to a format that can run and function normally on edge devices built with ASIC chips. “We are now expanding our edge computing product line to bring more GPU and ASIC-based solutions to help developers build their AI systems in various verticals and industries. “The AIE-CP1A-A1 model, powered by Blaize Pathfinder P1600 SoM, is our first ASIC-based system. In the future, by integrating different types of chips and modules, we can offer heterogeneous computing devices that are suitable for different AI models.” Jackal Chen, Senior Product Manager at Aetina Keeping AI processing and inferencing workloads at the edge, rather than sending data to the cloud, is critical for cost-effective and almost latency-free AI applications," said Dinakar Munagala, CEO and Co-founder of Blaize. "The Pathfinder SoM and our GSP architecture enable this key business objective for the demands of computer vision applications, including object detection, autonomous optical inspection, robotics, and more." Additionally, Aetina is now developing more ASIC-based AI accelerators with M.2 and EDSFF specification for developers, speeding up the inference processes of their AI models at the edge. About Blaize Blaize is a leading provider of a proprietary purpose-built, full-stack hardware architecture and low-code/no-code software platform that enables edge AI processing solutions at the network’s edge for computing in multiple large and rapidly-growing markets — automotive, mobility, retail, security, industrial automation, medical devices, and many others. Blaize’s novel solution solves the technical problem that edge AI processing requires across those verticals — very low latency and high thermal and power efficiency — which previously relied on retrofitting sub-optimized AI solutions designed more for data centers and the cloud. Blaize has previously raised over $180MM from strategic investors such as DENSO, Daimler, Magna, and Samsung, and financial investors such as Franklin Templeton, Temasek, GGV, and others. With headquarters in El Dorado Hills (CA), Blaize has teams in San Jose (CA) and subsidiaries in Hyderabad (India), Manila (Philippines), and Leeds and Kings Langley (UK), with 300+ employees worldwide.
