Sunnyvale, California — February 26, 2019 — Diamond Systems, a leading global provider for rugged, I/O-rich embedded computing solutions, has introduced Elton™, a carrier board solution built to deliver AI-at-the-edge high performance computing based on NVIDIA® Jetson™ AGX Xavier™ modules. Elton targets a range of industrial and military applications, with a focus on harsh environments such as vehicles and other outdoor applications. Named in honor of the composer of the song “Rocketman,” Elton opens the door to a new frontier in the application of high performance computing technology to real world situations.
Elton is particularly noteworthy as it has a full-fledged PCI/104-Express expansion socket. Unique in the NVIDIA ecosystem, Elton bridges the emerging world of AI/ML technology with the long-life, highly successful, rugged industrial embedded computing ecosystem of PC/104. Elton provides support for PCI-104, PCIe/104 type 2 (x8 lane), and PCIe/104 OneBank expansion modules (4 x1 lanes), enabling rapid creation of truly rugged, custom-configured, high performance, PCIe-based solutions using off-the-shelf I/O modules from a large number of manufacturers worldwide.
Elton utilizes a 50% thicker PCB, latching connectors, and the rugged PCI/104-Express expansion bus to create a rugged platform ideal for the most demanding compute-intensive harsh-environment applications. Elton’s larger size of 102x152mm includes standard PC I/O and additional expansion capabilities like data acquisition, M.2 and PCIe MiniCard sockets, and an LTE modem socket.
Elton comes with a compact and cost-effective yet full-featured data acquisition circuit with analog input, analog output, and digital I/O to interface to the "real world" of analog and digital sensors and controls. A programming library provides support for rapid development of custom applications, while a ready-to-run application with graphical user interface provides convenient real-time control of the data acquisition I/O as well as data logging.
Diamond’s Family of Embedded Computing Solutions for NVIDIA Jetson Computer Modules
In addition to Elton, Diamond Systems has introduced a family of solutions for delivering AI-at-the-edge high performance computing solutions based on NVIDIA Jetson TX2, TX2i and AGX Xavier™ modules. The family includes four carrier boards as well as a finished system housed in an ultra-compact enclosure. These solutions target a range of industrial and military applications, with a focus on harsh environments such as vehicles and other outdoor applications.
Elton will be available in early Q2 2019.
