AIE900A-NX - Fanless embedded AI system for 5G and computer vision applications
  • NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX with Volta GPU architecture offers 21 TOPS in 15W System-on-Module package (SoM)
  • Features a 5G ready M.2 3050 Expansion slot for high-speed low latency cellular communication
  • Supports four PoE+ for GigE cameras and LidAr for computer vision applications
The AIE900A-NX from Axiomtek is a rugged embedded fanless box PC powered by the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX. Featuring the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX SoM, four PoE+ ports, a broad selection of I/O, an IP40 metal chassis, and a wide operating temperature support for rugged industrial environments, the AIE900A-NX is ideal for autonomous mobile robots, automated guided vehicles and computer vision applications.

The Jetson Xavier NX SoM

NVIDIA has designed the Xavier NX SoM as a compact but powerful 15W compute unit made up of two main components: a Hexa-core NVIDIA Carmel ARM v8.2 64-bit CPU with 6MB L2 cache and a NVIDIA Volta GPU with 384 Cuda cores and 48 Tensor cores. The Xavier NX is only the size of a credit card, yet offers 21 TOPs of GPU accelerated performance capable of running modern neural networks in parallel whilst processing up to 4x 4K60 streams in H.265 video compression. The Jetson Xavier NX also ships with onboard 16GB eMMC storage and 8GB of 128-bit LPDDR4x system memory for an out-of-the-box deployable solution. 

Features of the AIE900A-NX

Axiomtek has designed the AIE900A-NX for vision-based applications, by featuring four Gigabit PoE+ ports (powered by the Intel i210-IT NIC) which offer 30W of power for GigE cameras and LiDAR sensors. An impressive array of additional I/O includes an additional Gigabit Ethernet port, one HDMI2.0 graphics port, two 10Gbps USB3.1 Gen 2 ports, two DB9 ports for RS-232/422/485 serial or CAN, 8-channel digital I/O, and a MIPI CSI-2 connector for an additional camera. Storage-wise there is the Jetson Xavier NX's onboard 16GB eMMC flash plus an M.2 2280 NVMe SSD slot and Micro-SD slot for flexible storage and O/S deployment

For system expansion, there is a SIM slot, a MiniPCIe slot and an M.2 3050/3042 B-key slot which can support 5G modules allowing high-speed deployment at the edge.  All of this is packaged in an IP40 rated metal chassis with a wide -30°C to +60°C operating temperature and a wide 12V to 24V DC input with ignition power control, making the AIE900A-NX suitable for in-vehicle applications like automated vehicles and autonomous mobile robots.
