Advantech Co., Ltd has launched the AIR-020 series, an ultra-compact series of edge AI systems powered by the NVIDIA Jetson family. With a small footprint of just 139mm x 110mm x 44.5mm (5.47″ x 4.33″ x 1.75″) dimensions, the series offers low power computing with powerful AI inference capabilities using NVIDIA Jetson Nano, TX2 NX and Xavier NX SoM, the series is ideal for edge AI applications including traffic monitoring, AGV/AMR, defect inspection, people counting, medical imaging and more.
It is powered by the NVIDIA Xavier NX SoM, AIR-020T from Jetson TX2 NX and AIR-020N from Jetson Nano to meet diverse AI applications and performance demands. The three products offer an ultra-compact design measuring just 139mm x 110mm x 44.5mm (5.47″ x 4.33″ x 1.75″), making them easy to integrate into applications. 020X supports up to 21TOPS and 1058 fps targeting high-resolution image processing processes. AIR-020T and AIR-020N support 1.33/0.5 TFLOPS and up to 109/48fps. The series supports a wide range 12-24VDC input, -10C to 55C working range, and resistance to vibration and humidity.
AI projects are used in a wide variety of applications that require variable peripheral connections. The series features expanded I/O ports including 2 x USB 3.2 Type A, USB 3.2 Type C, 1 or 2 x GbE, 1 or 2 x RS-232/422/485, 8-bit DIO and CANBus for data acquisition and communication. The ultra-compact AI boxes come pre-installed with 4GB/8GB LPDDR4 and 16GB eMMC 5.1. In addition, it offers 128 GB of M.2 storage as the default data storage setting for AI use.
The series is bundled with the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS OS environment, Advantech Edge AI Suite and JetPack SDK 4.5.1. Developers can easily develop AI models and deploy applications. For data security, it uses the TPM 2.0 Trusted Platform module and Secure Boot, which opens the door to computer-intensive industrial applications and greater system security at the edge.
