Advantech i-Module MIC-75G20 Supports High-end 350W NVIDIA GPU Cards with Flexible Bracket Design
August, 2022, Taipei, Taiwan - Advantech, a leading global provider of intelligent systems and industrial edge computers, is excited to announce the release of its new MIC-75G20 i-Module, a GPU expansion module for its MIC-7 series of IPCs that feature many pioneering mechanical designs. MIC-75G20 can support a wide range of NVIDIA GPU cards, including a high-end triple-fan GPU card that requires a 350W power supply. MIC-75G20 is fully compatible with MIC-770 V3, a high-performance modular IPC with 12th Gen. Intel Core™ processors. This excellent GPU solution combination enables AI inference and acceleration at the edge and can be deployed to various automation equipment, providing high computing performance in automated optical inspection, autonomous guided vehicles, sorting machines and more.
Compact Advantech MIC-75G20 i-Module supports many high-end NVIDIA GPU cards
As AI and high-end image processing applications keep growing, the demand for more powerful high-performance GPU cards keeps increases as more and more high-performance GPU card selections become available in diverse form factors. To meet this need, Advantech designed the compact MIC-75G20 GPU expansion module in a ruggedized design to sustain more powerful and heavier cards. MIC-75G20 features a more powerful pulse width modulation (PWM) system fan to optimize thermal management, allowing MIC-75G20 to support -10~60°C wide operating temperatures. MIC-75G20 also provides independent 24VDC power inputs for up to 700W (peak) high power consumption applications. MIC-75G20 supports a single high-end 350W, 2.75-slot width, 334.6mm length NVIDIA GPU card. MIC-75G20 also includes one PCIe x4 slot and one PCIe x16 slot for a PoE camera and frame-grabber card to capture images that can be processed by the GPU and AI model at the edge, ensuring high quality image resolution and data processing, making it perfect for intelligent systems.
Flexible new GPU bracket design supports multiple form factor GPU cards
Advantech provides the powerful and versatile Advantech i-Module series for a range of different GPU-powered applications. MIC-75G20 has a flexible GPU card holder design, which is patent pending in P.R.C. and R.O.C. It features an adjustable GPU card bracket module, meaning the GPU card can be fastened securely from four different points, giving it excellent flexibility in accommodating GPU cards in various dimensions, brands, and generations. Furthermore, the ruggedized design for the GPU bracket module can resist 10Grms shock and 1Grms vibration with a card installed, making it suitable to be deployed in harsh environments. The groundbreaking innovation of MIC-75G20 not only ensures system reliability and performance, but also provides full resiliency and cost efficiency for customers to adopt new edge AI applications, and allows them to easily upgrade to higher GPU solutions.
