Fanless embedded Rudi-AGX is for advanced AI applications

A thermally-optimised, fanless embedded system from Nvidia hardware partner, Connect Tech, the Rudi-AGX is based on the Nvidia AGX Xavier. This is claimed to be the most powerful system on module (SoM) in the Nvidia Jetson family and enables customers to deploy computationally heavy artificial intelligence (AI) workloads at the edge.

The Rudi-AGX unleashes the full potential of the Jetson AGX Xavier module, capable of running AI programs at maximum performance (Max-N), says Connect Tech, while maintaining a safe operating temperature. The edge device is designed to seamlessly deploy the next generation of autonomous vehicles, smart city applications, and intelligent video solutions.

It is equipped with an AGX Xavier SoM embedded, together with a Volta GPU with 512 Cuda cores, 64 Tensor cores. It is able to achieve an AI performance of 32Terra operations per second. Connect Tech explains that the Rudi-AGX‘s thermal optimisation allows access to the module’s full AI performance capabilities.

Rudi-AGX can be customised to specific I/O needs with both small and large batch manufacturing services available.

Connect Tech also provides other Jetson edge device options. There is the Rudi-NX, an embedded system designed to channel the performance power of the Jetson Xavier NX SoC. Pre-configured to support a variety of AI, vision, and sensor applications, Rudi-NX is a field-ready device.

Sentry-X is a ruggedised Jetson AGX Xavier powered edge device. It is tested to meet MIL-STD-810G as well as DO-160G for shock and vibration, and provides ingress protection of IP67. Sentry-X is designed with a quick-remove I/O dock for rapid extraction of the compute system, making it particularly well suited to aerospace and defence applications.
