Box PC powered by Nvidia Jetson TX2 NX provides AI at the edge

The Boxer-8230AI AI edge box PC developed by Aaeon is powered by Nvidia’s Jetson TX2 NX system on module (SoM).

It is rugged and cost-effective, says Aaeon, and has a varied I/O layout, including five Gigabit Ethernet ports.

It can be used for intelligent applications including surveillance, smart factory, and smart retail, advises the company.

The Boxer-8230AI is available in two configurations, the Boxer-8230AI-A3 and Boxer-8230AI-A4, both with five Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports to connect with IP cameras and other devices, four USB3.2 Gen 1 ports and two COM ports. Storage is provided with 16Gbyte onboard eMMC storage, microSD slot and a 2.5-inch SATA III bay (A4 model).

The Jetson TX2 NX delivers more than twice the performance of the Nvidia Jetson Nano thanks to its six-core Arm processor and Nvidia Pascal GPU with 256 CUDA cores. The Jetson TX2 NX achieves speeds up to 1.33TFLOPS, sufficient to power a wide range of AI edge applications.

The Boxer-8230AI is designed for use in rugged environments. It is a fanless design to keep dust and contaminants out. It also has wide operating temperature ranges, from -25 to 75 degrees C for the Boxer-8230AI-A4 and up to 65 degrees C for the Boxer-8230AI-A3. According to Aaeon, the PC can be deployed in almost any harsh environment.

Aaeon provides customer support in the form of software and customisation. Each system comes with the latest Nvidia JetPack 4.5.1 software development kit pre-installed, with no need to flash the OS. The company also offers customisation to boot from different devices and other services on a per-project basis.

Aaeon has also announced that it will extend the range with the planned release of the Boxer-8233AI with PoE PSE capabilities and HDMI input .

Established in 1992, Aaeon designs and manufactures industrial IoT and AI edge computing products, with a portfolio of industrial motherboards and systems, rugged tablets, embedded AI edge systems, uCPE network appliances, and LoRaWAN / WWAN products. Aaeon also provides OEM / ODM services worldwide and works closely with cities and governments to develop and deploy smart city ecosystems.

Aaeon works closely with chip designers and is recognised as an Nvidia Preferred Partner.
