New single-board computer offers more than double AI processing performance

11-05-2021 | Impulse Embedded | Subs & Systems

Impulse Embedded now offers the new NVIDIA Jetson TX2 NX single board computer. The SBC provides the next step in AI performance for entry-level embedded and edge products.

As with the Jetson Xavier NX, the board shares the same form factor and pin compatibility as the Jetson Nano but provides more than twice the AI processing performance at 1.33TFlops compared to 487GFlops. A unique blend of form-factor, performance and power advantage makes the board a great option for mass-market AI platforms.

The SBC combines a dual-core NVIDIA Denver 2 64-bit CPU, a quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 MPCore processor and a 256-core Pascal GPU that can reach 1.3GHz. Moreover, the SBC has 4GB of 128-bit LPDDR4 memory and 16GB of eMMC 5.1 flash storage and PCI Express expansion, Gigabit Ethernet, a USB3.1 Gen 1 port and video output via HDMI or DisplayPort. The SBC is fully capable of encoding one 4K stream at 60fps in HEVC/H.265 or as many as 14 streams in 1080p @ 30fps in HEVC/H.264.

The JetPack is the complete solution for building powerful AI applications. All Jetson modules and developer kits, including the TX2 NX, are supported by the JetPack software stack, allowing companies and developers to produce AI solutions knowing they can deploy them anywhere on any Jetson device.

Robert Plant, sales director at Impulse Embedded, comments, “Developing the perfect industrial AI computing solution can be difficult, costly and time-consuming. With our Embedded Systems capabilities, we can create reliable, repeatable and robust systems to help reduce our customer’s costs and development time. With our team of in-house engineers and specialists, all with decades of experience, we can offer fully deployable embedded Edge AI computing solutions straight out of the box.”
