AAEON, an award-winning developer of advanced AI hardware, releases the BOXER-8120AI, a powerful and compact controller for edge AI applications.
Powered by the NVIDIA Jetson TX2, the BOXER-8120AI supports 256 CUDA cores and a range of AI frameworks including TensorFlow, Caffe2, and MXNet. The device is able to process images, video, and speech in real time, and without a connection to the cloud. The system features 8GB LPDDR4 memory, 32GB eMMC storage, and a Micro SD slot.
The BOXER-8120AI with Jetson TX2 is capable of supporting four LAN ports. Combined with the device’s compact 153mm x 30mm x 101mm dimensions and remote power/reset switch, this feature means it’s perfect for a new type of edge AI street-side parking surveillance system in which the entire system – including cameras and the controller – is fitted high off the ground at the top of a street light pole.
Self-service stores will also benefit from the BOXER-8120AI’s unique properties. Four LAN ports and two USB 3.0 ports, along with USB OTG, mean the new AAEON PC can connect to a greater number of cameras and sensors. This enables faster, more accurate identification of shoppers and their purchases. In addition, USB OTG enables easy maintenance, allowing the BOXER-8120AI to connect to a PC or other input devices.
The BOXER-8120AI has been built for tough environments and features a tough aluminum chassis, anti-dust protection, a wide operating temperature range, and a 9-24Vdc power input range.
Speaking about the system, AAEON System Platform Division product manager Ethan Chiu said,
The BOXER-8120AI’s compact, cost-effective design and powerful processing abilities mean you’ll be able to deploy your AI platform anywhere.
