Connect Tech, an NVIDIA Jetson Ecosystem Partner, has added a rugged embedded system to its NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier line of products. The Jetson AGX Xavier is a powerful AI computer that provides high-end GPU workstation performance in a compact package that operates under 30 watts.
Connect Tech’s Sentry-X is built around the Jetson AGX Xavier and brings out a wide assortment of I/Os.
Some of the features provided include:
- 2x GbE
- 3x USB 3.1
- 2x CAN 2.0b
- 1x RS-232
- 1x RS-422/485
- 1x UART 3.3V TTL
- 8x GPIO
Connect Tech’s Sentry-X is well targeted for customers in aerospace and defense as well as any market or application that can benefit from the incredible performance of the Jetson AGX Xavier packaged in a rugged enclosure. Sentry-X is designed to meet MIL-STD-810G as well as DO-160G for shock and vibration along with ingress protection of IP67.
The Sentry-X is designed to bring all the I/O out to one panel and terminate to rugged Fisher MiniMax connectors except for 1x USB 3.0/3.1, which also contains USB OTG, along with 3x status LEDs found on the opposite panel. The flexible I/O front end also lends itself well to 38999 or M12 style connectors.
Careful thought has gone into expansion, ensuring that mass storage can be added as well as WiFi, Bluetooth and analog frame grabbers. The Sentry-X also comes with a unique docking station that allows for quick release if the removal or replacement of a Sentry-X compute module is needed.
“The release of the Sentry-X rugged embedded system confirms our commitment to the Jetson community,” said Michele Kasza, vice president of sales and marketing at Connect Tech. “The Sentry-X also underscores our design capabilities both from a high-speed digital design perspective as well as our mechanical capabilities.”
