PRE­MIER FARNELL has launched an AI Configurator tool that it says al­lows en­gi­neers to quickly select the most ap­pro­pri­ate de­vel­op­ment so­lu­tion for their ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence ( AI) projects.

The new configurator en­ables users to iden­tify the de­vel­op­ment boards as­so­ci­ated add- on board, ac­ces­sories and soft­ware that best meet their needs from a wide range of ven­dors. This en­sures that they work on a board that pro­vides the op­ti­mum sup­port they re­quire, speed­ing up de­vel­op­ment with­out the need for un­nec­es­sary and time- con­sum­ing re­search.

“En­gi­neers are of­ten only aware of prod­ucts from a lim­ited num­ber of ven­dors, but by of­fer­ing them a selec­tion of so­lu­tions from the widest pos­si­ble spec­trum of sup­pli­ers, the AI Configurator tool means that en­gi­neers don’t need to be ex­perts on prod­ucts from ev­ery ven­dor to en­sure they are us­ing the best tech­nol­ogy to sup­port their projects”, says Ralf Buehler Se­nior Vice- Pres­i­dent, Sales & Mar­ket­ing, at Pre­mier Farnell. “This is the first AI con­fig­u­ra­tion and selector tool to cover mul­ti­ple ven­dors and al­lows users to buy the prod­uct quickly and eas­ily – it should be the first place that en­gi­neers go to when start­ing or con­sid­er­ing a project us­ing AI.”

The tool al­lows searches for AI ap­pli­ca­tions in the fol­low­ing sec­tors:

• Pre­dic­tive main­te­nance.

• Voice recog­ni­tion.

• Ob­ject or hu­man recog­ni­tion.

• Mo­tion recog­ni­tion.

• Ma­chine learn­ing. En­gi­neers can then select the sen­sors they need from:

• En­vi­ron­men­tal sens­ing ( heat, pres­sure etc.)

• Mo­tion sens­ing.

• Prox­im­ity sens­ing.

• Au­dio sens­ing.

• Im­age sens­ing.

The AI configurator tool also al­lows en­gi­neers to select long- or short- range wire­less com­mu­ni­ca­tions and dy­nam­i­cally changes the op­tions avail­able, so users can al­ways see which com­bi­na­tions of fea­tures are avail­able and which are not.

Fol­low­ing prod­uct iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and selec­tion, the AI Configurator tool pro­vides a link di­rectly to the se­lected prod­ucts on Pre­mier Farnell’s sites, thereby mak­ing the buy­ing process quick and easy. The tool also pro­vides links to ad­di­tional rel­e­vant re­sources and con­tent avail­able through­out the sites.
