11-05-2023 | Elma Electronics | Automotive & Transport

Elma Electronic has expanded its line of rugged small form factor (SFF) edge computing systems to include the JetSys-5330, based on the powerful NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin SoM. The new rugged AI platform offers up to 275 TOPS and multiple expansion sites for custom I/O and storage necessities, making it an ideal platform for rugged, deployed deep learning applications.

By enabling advanced data processing in harsh environments, the platform is ideal for numerous rugged and mission-critical applications using wireless multi-access edge computing and those in remote or outdoor environments. Rugged industrial applications, including robotics and autonomous mining, agriculture, and construction vehicles, can also benefit from its edge computing capabilities.

Mark Littlefield, director, system products for Elma Electronic, commented, "The power of AI brought to the edge by this latest NVIDIA Jetson-based JetSys platform is enhanced by the versatile and extensive I/O interfaces and storage capabilities. This new system can handle multiple concurrent video pipelines, which means enhanced data handling and processing power for rugged systems."

Easily configurable and expandable to fulfil mission demands, the platform combines the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin module with the company's new JetKit-3110 carrier card, which supplies the necessary power and interfaces for the SoM as well as three mini-PCIe slots (one that doubles as mSATA) and two M.2 slots (one B-Key and one M-Key) for custom I/O or fixed storage expansion.

The platform's rugged design is IP67 rated and qualified to MIL-STD-810G, MIL-HDBK-704F, MIL-STD-1275D, and others. Depending on the system configuration, the platform's power consumption ranges from 53W to 130W. Maximum weight is 16lbs with an optionally available fan kit.
