AAEON Announces BOXER-8640AI and BOXER-8641AI
Taipei, Taiwan, March 23, 2022 - With the announcement of the NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Orin™ developer kit, AAEON is excited to utilize the many benefits that such a powerful system-on-module (SOM) can bring to its own product lines. With the same form factor and pin compatibility as the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier™, but with an improvement from 32 TOPS to 275 TOPS, the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin is set to make it easier than ever to develop faster, more sophisticated AI applications.
AAEON is therefore pleased to announce two upcoming products available in Q4 which will feature the Jetson AGX Orin 32GB and Jetson AGX Orin 64GB as their respective processor modules: the BOXER-8640AI and BOXER-8641AI AI@Edge Embedded BOX PCs. Both products will feature the NVIDIA JetPack™ 5.0 SDK to support the full Jetson software stack to help in the development of AI applications in areas such as high-end autonomous machinery.
With two NVIDIA deep learning accelerators (NVDLA), along with a 32GB 256-bit system memory, the BOXER-8640AI will provide the perfect device for vision-based AI applications. Moreover, its expansive I/O options include 4 RJ-45 slots for PoE, along with DB-9 slots for CANbus and six DIO.
The BOXER-8641AI is equipped with 64 GB 256-bit system memory and 64 GB eMMC storage. The BOXER-8641AI also offers 2 Giga LAN RJ45 ports, alongside 6 USB slots and a micro-SD card slot for additional storage. The AI performance capabilities of the Jetson AGX Orin, based on the NVIDIA Ampere GPU architecture, are 8x that of the Jetson AGX Xavier, giving users unprecedented access to more powerful and efficient AI inferencing capabilities, along with increased processing speed. Further boosting the Jetson AGX Orin is the architecture’s up to 2,048 CUDA cores and 64 third-generation Tensor Cores, in comparison to its predecessor’s Volta architecture, which had 512 CUDA and 64 Tensor Cores.
In addition, the Jetson AGX Orin developer kit’s 12-core Arm Cortex-A78AE v8.2 64-bit CPU shows significant improvements over the previous model, with an increase from eight Carmel cores to 12 A78 cores for a more powerful processing unit.
As is already apparent from the BOXER-8640AI and BOXER-8641AI’s potential applications, AAEON customers will benefit tremendously from NVIDIA’s innovation, with AAEON’s ODM and OEM expertise utilizing the adroitness of the Jetson AGX Orin in facilitating AI application deployment. The combination of the Jetson AGX Orin SOM’s sophisticated GPU, its integrated AI software, and deep learning accelerators will ensure AAEON customers have access to the most powerful computing options when it comes to realizing their AI edge concepts.
A further benefit to AAEON customers is that the Jetson AGX Orin developer kit features the same 699-pin form factor module as previous modules, ensuring compatibility with AAEON carrier boards loaded with existing NVIDIA modules of the same configuration, allowing for smooth migration to power existing AI edge applications.
