AMETEK Abaco Systems has introduced the SBC3902, a new SOSA-aligned single board computer (SBC) in a small 3U VPX form factor. Based around the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin module, the SBC is designed for advanced edge computing, AI and GPU processing applications and is ideal for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and unmanned systems.

Aligned with Sensor Open System Architecture slot profile 14.2.16, the IO-intensive computing card delivers up to 275 TOPS of AI performance. The Jetson AGX Orin GPU includes 2048 NVIDIA CUDA cores and 64 Tensor Cores, as well as DL and vision accelerators. Based on NVIDA Ampere Architecture, the module also delivers instantaneous data transfer, dedicated encode/decode capabilities, and deep learning (DL) algorithms.

The SBC3902 SBC’s high-speed IO feeds multiple concurrent AI application pipelines, including USB3.2, DisplayPort and RS-232 serial ports, to complement 205 GB/s of memory bandwidth, 64 GB of DRAM, and 64GB eMMC internal storage. PCIe Gen 4 data and expansion and 10GbE control plane connectivity are also included.

Pete Thompson, AMETEK Abaco vice president of product management, commented: “The conduction-cooled SBC3902 single board computer is ideal for complex, IO-intensive applications that can benefit from GPU processing, including autonomous vehicles and tracking.”
