Syslogic Integrates Nvidia Jetson AGX Xavier Industrial Computer-on-Module into its Vehicle and Railway Computers

Used for intelligent video analysis, computer vision, robotics, and autonomous driving, Nvidia also added an industrial variant of the Jetson AGX Xavier for harsh environmental conditions.

In terms of performance, the industrial module offers the same specifications as the Jetson AGX Xavier. It has a 512-core NVIDIA Volta GPU with 64 tensor cores, two NVIDIA deep-learning accelerators, two vision accelerators, and an eight-core NVIDIA Carmel Arm CPU. With this, the Syslogic embedded systems based on the Jetson AGX Xavier provide industrial AI computing power for computer vision or inference applications under extreme environmental conditions.

The industrial computer is designed to be ideal for environments that are wet, dusty, prone to shock, and where the vibration load is high. Ideal industries include agricultural technology, construction machinery, the energy industry, smart cities, and railroad technology. 

According to the company, Syslogic uses the Industrial variant of the Jetson TX2 in its rugged embedded computers. Now, all devices based on the Jetson AGX Xavier are optionally available with the industrial variant of the module. Syslogic combines the Jetson module with its own carrier board and housing. Like Nvidia’s module, the carrier board and housing are designed for harsh industrial use. 

With the new Industrial Module, Syslogic computers are rated for a temperature range of at least –40°C to +70°C. They meet shock and vibration requirements according to EN61373 and ISO 15003. In addition to the electronics and housing design, screw-type M12 connectors are designed to offer reliable operation under extreme situations.
