New Edge Computing System for AI & Robotics

Powered by the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin platform, the rugged system provides a range of I/O and connectivity options By Mike Ball / 29 Sep 2022

Vecow EAC-5000 edge AI computing platformVecow has introduced the latest addition to the company’s edge AI computing system portfolio, the EAC-5000. Powered by the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin platform, the compact and rugged EAC-5000 supports high compute density with I/O flexibility for advanced edge AI applications in harsh environments. With support for 9V to 50V DC power input, an operating temperature range from -20°C to 70°C, as well as software ignition control, the platform is ideal for a wide range of applications including robotic vehicle control, machine vision, and embedded AI.

The Vecow EAC-5000 is based on the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin platform, featuring an Arm Cortex-A78AE CPU delivering up to 275 TOPS of AI performance and integrating an advanced NVIDIA Ampere architecture GPU with 64 Tensor Cores for server-class performance. By utilizing GMSL2 cameras with FAKRA-Z connectors and a PCIe x8 slot for flexible PoE+ or USB3 expansion configurations, the EAC-5000 provides an ideal solution for real-time and intelligent video analytics. The system is also equipped with rich I/O interfaces, including 2 GigE LANs with an optional choice of X-coded M12 connector, 5 USBs, 2 COMs, 2 Isolated CAN Buses, and 2 SIM card sockets. It also supports six antennas for industrial-grade connectivity by M.2 Key E and Key B, allowing for multiple 5G/WiFi/4G/LTE/GPRS/UMTS communications.

Esther Han, Product Manager for Embedded Systems & Platform Division at Vecow, commented: “Vecow EAC-5000 provides high-computing AI with up to 8x performance faster than NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier, enabling faster and more energy-efficient performance for machine vision and automotive applications. Furthermore, the EAC-5000 supports device monitoring and management services by Allxon, bringing powerful out-of-band management and disaster-recovery services onto edge AI devices at remote locations 24/7.”

Joseph Huang, Sales Manager at Vecow, noted: “We are excited to expand our product portfolio powered by the NVIDIA Jetson platform to our partners. With the increased demand for more and high-quality image processing in AI-enabled video analysis applications such as autonomous vehicles, EAC-5000 is Vecow’s most powerful and energy-efficient edge AI computing system powered by the NVIDIA Jetson platform. We are excited to debut it at InnoTrans 2022, VISION 2022 and The Vision Show 2022.”
