Ultra-compact, high-performance Edge intelligence systems. Impulse Embedded, a leading provider of industrial computing systems and solutions can now supply the EAC-2000 series from Vecow. These ultra-compact, high-performance Edge intelligence systems leverage the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX SOM chip.
The EAC-2000 series offers excellent power efficiency in a rugged enclosure with wide temperature and DC power input ranges suitable for AI Vision projects, as well as industrial applications including traffic vision, intelligent surveillance, auto optical inspection, Smart Factory, AMR, or AGV.
The NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX System on Module (SOM) is a powerful 15W processing unit that is built 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. Capable of offering 21 TOPs of GPU accelerated performance, the Xavier NX can decode up to four 4K30 HEVC video streams whilst running modern neural networks in parallel. The EAC-2000 series is ready to be deployed out of the box as the Jetson Xavier NX also ships complete with 8GB of LPDDR4x of system memory and 16GB of eMMC storage.
Thanks to the NVIDIA’s Jetpack software suite, the EAC-2100 can be deployed with any application that was developed on a Jetson Development Kit, allowing for scalable, fast deployment.
The EAC-2000 is targeted towards Edge AI demands and is powered by the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX. Packed with I/O, the EAC-2000 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 can support up to 5G cellular comms along with SIM card support and six antenna breakouts. For storage, in addition to the onboard 16GB eMMC included, there is an M.2 2280 M-key, plus an external SD card slot offering a variety of options.
The EAC-2100 expands on the feature set provided by the EAC-2000 and focuses more on in-vehicle usage, with the addition of CANbus support, four Fakra-Z connections for GMSL automotive cameras, and two Gigabit PoE+ ports.
Both models come in a compact wall-mountable metal chassis with EN 50155 and EN 50121-3-2 certification for EMC, a wide -20°C to +70°C operating temperature and 9V to 50V DC power input to meet the demands of a wide range of industrial automation and Edge applications, as well as support for the rail and in-vehicle market.
As with all of Impulse Embedded’s embedded computing range, full configuration of either the EAC-2000 or EAC-2100 can be carried out to customer’s exact specifications in their UK-based engineering facility, which offers a wide choice of memory, storage, peripheral cards, and embedded operating system.
Impulse Embedded Systems capabilities can create reliable, repeatable and revision-controlled systems aimed at reducing customers’ overall project costs and development time. Their in-house team of engineers and specialists, all with decades of experience, can provide fully deployable embedded computing solutions straight out of the box.
