Embedded Series Overview

The Embedded Series Artificial Intelligence Radio Transceiver (AIR-T) is designed optimized for cost reduction while still leveraging the high-performance computing standards of the AIR-T. The Embedded Series is built for deployment in laboratory, datacenter, and commercial environments. Each AIR-T model is a high-performance software defined radio (SDR) with integrated FPGA, CPUs, and a GPU for parallel processing and deep learning inference. For deployment in an industrial, outdoor, or harsh weather environment, please see the AIR-T Edge Series.
