Ultra-compact and high-performance edge intelligence systems

Impulse Embedded now supplies the EAC-2000 series from Vecow. These ultra-compact, high-performance Edge intelligence systems leverage the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX SOM chip. The series provides excellent power efficiency in a rugged enclosure with wide temperature and DC power input ranges ideal for AI Vision projects, as well as industrial applications including traffic vision, auto optical inspection, intelligent surveillance, Smart Factory, AMR, or AGV.

The SOM is a powerful 15W processing unit developed around a 384 Core NVIDIA Volta GPU, with 48 Tensor cores and a Hexa-core NVIDIA Carmel ARM V8.2 64-bit CPU with 6MB of L2 cache. Able to offer 21 TOPs of GPU accelerated performance, the Xavier NX can decode up to four 4K30 HEVC video streams while running modern neural networks in parallel. The series is equipped to be deployed out of the box as the Jetson Xavier NX arrives complete with 8GB of LPDDR4x of system memory and 16GB of eMMC storage.

Due to the NVIDIA’s Jetpack software suite, the EAC-2100 can be deployed with any application developed on a Jetson Development Kit, providing scalable and fast deployment.

The series is aimed towards Edge AI demands and is powered by the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX. Packed with I/O, the device comes with one HDMI display port, two Gigabit PoE+ ports with 25W per port, dual Gigabit Ethernet, four USB3.1 and two serial ports. For wireless connectivity, there is an M.2 E-key for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and an M.2 3042/3052 B-key slot that supports up to 5G cellular comms along with SIM card support and six antenna breakouts. For storage, as well as the onboard 16GB eMMC included, there is an M.2 2280 M-key and an external SD card slot providing a variety of options.

Both models arrive in a compact wall-mountable metal chassis with EN 50155 and EN 50121-3-2 certification for EMC, a wide -20C to +70C operating temperature and 9V to 50V DC power input to satisfy the demands of an extensive range of industrial automation and Edge applications, as well as support for the rail and in-vehicle market.
