NVIDIA toughens up Jetson AGX Xavier

NVIDIA has introduced a hardened version of NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier system-on-module that can withstand harsh environments.

Called NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier Industrial module, it is built for intelligent video analytics, optical inspection, robotics, computer vision, autonomy, and AI in the toughest environments.

The new industrial module can be deployed in industrial, aerospace, defence, construction, agriculture, logistics, inventory management, delivery, inspection, healthcare or anywhere where safety and reliability are critical priorities. Applications enabled across these sectors include worker and site safety, site access and monitoring, and inspection in hazardous and harsh environments.

Jetson AGX Xavier Industrial combines the supercomputing capabilities of the Jetson AGX Xavier system-on-module with new reliability, availability and serviceability features required to deploy AI in tough environments. These include error correction codes, single error correction, double error detection, and parity protection to deliver internal RAM resilience, address and data bus error detection and correction and IP resiliency in industrial applications.

The module comes with functional safety capabilities supervised by the Safety Cluster Engine, making it suitable for safety-certified industrial-grade products. It also has the same key accelerators and high-speed I/Os included with Jetson AGX Xavier.

On the module are a 512-core NVIDIA Volta GPU with 64 Tensor Cores, two NVIDIA deep learning accelerators, two vision accelerators, an eight-core NVIDIA Carmel Arm CPU, an encoder and decoder. Also packed in are hardware-verified secure boot, hardware-accelerated cryptography, support for encrypted storage, memory, and other security features to protect customer software.

The new Jetson AGX Xavier Industrial module is available for order now with deliveries from late July.
