TAIPEI, Taiwan – AAEON Technology in Taipei, Taiwan, is introducing the BOXER-8653AI and BOXER-8623AI embedded PC computers for artificial intelligence (AI) applications. These rugged computers are powered by the NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX and Jetson Orin Nano, respectively.

Measuring 180 by 136 by 75 millimeters, the computers are compact and are wall-mounted for discreet deployment in indoor and outdoor settings such as factories and parking lots.

The computers offer environmental resilience, with the BOXER-8653AI sporting a wide -15-to-60-degree temperature tolerance and the BOXER-8623AI able to operate between -15 and 65 C, with both supporting a 12-to-24-volt power input range via a 2-pin terminal block.

The BOXER-8653AI has the NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX module, offering as much as 70 tera-operations per second of AI inference performance for applications that require extremely fast analysis of vast quantities of data.

Meanwhile, the BOXER-8623AI uses the more efficient NVIDIA Jetson Orin Nano module, capable of as much as 40 tera-operations per second. Both systems use the 1024-core NVIDIA Ampere architecture graphics processing unit (GPU) with 32 Tensor Cores.

Each devices has four PoE/PSE LAN ports, which help users deploy peripheral IP cameras, ease integrating the systems into applications without the need for separate electrical wiring.

Various types of serial communications are accommodated, with each featuring a DB-9 port for RS-232 and CANBus functions, as well as a DB-15 port for RS-232/422/485, and an 8-bit digital I/O to help facilitate system communications with industrial machinery. More peripheral device support comes in the form of four USB 3.2 Gen 2 (Type-A) ports, along with an HDMI port for display output.

The BOXER-8653AI and BOXER-8623AI offer 5G and Wi-Fi modules supported via an M.2 3042/3052 B-Key and M.2 2230 E-Key, respectively. Storage is based on solid-state drives, with NVMe available.
