Advantech Co., Ltd. announced the launch of the AIR-020 series, an ultra-compact series of edge AI systems powered by the NVIDIA Jetson family. Featuring a small footprint of just 139 x 110 x 44.5 mm (5.47" x 4.33" x 1.75") dimensions, AIR-020 series deliver low power computing with powerful AI inferencing capabilities utilizing NVIDIA Jetson Nano, TX2 NX, and Xavier NX SoM. AIR-020 series is a perfect fit for edge AI applications such as traffic monitoring, defect inspection, AGV/AMR, people counting, medical imaging and more.
Scalable and powerful AI performance with NVIDIA Jetson family
AIR-020X is powered by the NVIDIA Xavier NX SoM, while AIR-020T is powered by Jetson TX2 NX, and the AIR-020N is powered by Jetson Nano to meet diverse AI application and performance needs. The three offerings deliver an ultra-compact design with just 139 x 110 x 44.5 mm (5.47" x 4.33" x 1.75") dimensions, making them easy to integrate into the applications. AIR-020X supports up to 21 TOPS (Tera Operations per Second) and 1058 frames per second (FPS) targeting high resolution imaging processes. AIR-020T and AIR-020N support 1.33/0.5 TFLOPS and up to 109/48 frames per second (FPS). The AIR-020 series supports wide-range 12-24V DC input, -10 to 55°C operating range, and vibration and humidity resistance.
Robust I/O and connectivity: camera, wireless, peripheral integration
The AIR-020 series is equipped with extensive I/O ports including 2 x USB 3.2 Type A, USB 3.2 Type C, 1 or 2 x GbE, 1 or 2 x RS-232/422/485, 8-bit DIO, and CANBus for data acquisition and communication. The ultra-compact AI boxes are pre-installed with 4GB/8GB LPDDR4 and 16GB eMMC 5.1. Moreover, AIR-020 series provides 128GB of M.2 storage as the data storage default setting for AI usage.
Fast AI deployment with Ubuntu, Advantech Edge AI Suite & NVIDIA JetPack
The AIR-020 series bundles with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS OS environment, Advantech Edge AI Suite and JetPack SDK 4.5.1. Developers can design AI models and deploy their applications with ease. For data security, AIR-020 adopts TPM 2.0 trusted platform module and secure boot, which opens the door for compute-intensive industrial applications and better system security on the edge.
