Scale is a flexible edge computing architecture.The quad Cortex-A53 cores are dedicated to open-source operating systems while the Cortex-M4 core is dedicated to real-time and low-power tasks.

To make the Industrial IoT and Industry 4.0 a reality, manufacturers must interconnect operations technology (OT), such as manufacturing and automation systems, to their information technology (IT), including inventory, logistics, and customer relationship management systems. EdgeBox is designed to enable the flow of information between these two domains.It will increase efficiency and reduce product delivery times.
