Embedded Peripherals

Maximum flexibility, unlimited expansion

Simms offer a comprehensive portfolio of embedded peripherals, pushing the limits for what is possible with embedded Input/Output expansion.

Simms provides Innodisk’ s portfolio of Embedded Peripherals for a comprehensive range of applications. Whether it’s a proof of concept or up to 100’s of modules there is no MOQ for EP’s, allowing you the flexibility to expand the motherboard capability for the required solution without extensive board redesign costs.

Endless Innovation

Embedded Peripherals are designed as building blocks on top of existing motherboards as they offer flexibility for additional I/O expansion for existing boards without any redesign.

All it takes is a slot for mPCIe or an M.2 space, to easily add another module and another and another….the combinations are limitless. I/O modularisation achieves the small-volume and large-variety customisation service that certain customers require for bespoke applications. 

Find Your Fit

EPs have many different types of expansion slots such as LAN, CAN, PoE, Serial, USB and RAID enabling the connection of a multitude of different devices.

A simple, bolt-on EP can often be the difference between project success and failure. With over 100 different types of peripherals, there is a solution for any application or device.

Core Product Solutions

AI Accelerator Card

Innodisk’s EMPA-I101 is a brand new AI accelerator card featuring the Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X VPU (Vision Processing Unit), optimized for deep neural network inference.

The VPU enhances all vision inference applications such as facial recognition, Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR), and many other machine vision applications.

Thanks to its low power consumption and high performance, it is an ideal solution to implement in edge AI devices.

Communication

Innodisk’s expansion modules provide flexible connectivity and bandwidth to industrial systems.

With mPCIe GbE LAN, PoE, CAN bus, and serial communication modules, users can expand existing systems to achieve the dynamic connectivity required by IoT and edge devices.

Flexible Industrial I/O expansion cards provide stable connectivity and bandwidth to industrial systems, which utilise robust PoE, CANbus, LAN, DIO and serial cards, which are available in form factors such as Mini PCIe, PCIe and M.2.

Storage

EP storage comes in a wide range of storage interfaces, including PCIe/SATA/USB/PATA. EP storage modules allow system integrators to expand or convert those interfaces in embedded systems.

With a multitude of options available Storage EPs are designed for total system flexibility whatever the requirement and environment.

EPs have different interfaces or connections to the motherboard, so in turn, the EP has different kinds of connections depending on what is being plugged into it.
