Advantech Releases AIR-030 New Edge AI System with NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin System on Module
Taipei, January, 2023 - Advantech Co., Ltd. (TWSE: 2395), a global leader in industrial IoT, is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of its AIR-030 series of powerful edge AI systems powered by the NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Orin™ module. With up to 275 TOPS and 8X the performance of the previous generation of Jetson AGX Xavier based models, the AIR-030 series provides AI developers with a ready-to-deploy solution to accelerate AI robotics and video AI analytics applications.
The AIR-030 series comes with DeviceOn for Edge AI software, which facilitates AI development lifecycle management, from AI container deployment and AI model OTA updates to retraining and performance optimization. DeviceOn for Edge AI also provides real-time monitoring and management from edge AI devices to cloud-based AI. Combined with server-class AI performance, an industrial-grade design, and edge management, the AIR-030 series is the ideal solution for AGV, AMR, robotics, and video analytics applications.
Powerful AI Performance with Jetson AGX Orin
Featuring a rugged design with dimensions of 200 x 220 x 74 mm (7.87” x 8.66” x 2.91”), the AIR-030 series delivers powerful AI inferencing capabilities by utilizing NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin for energy-efficient autonomous machines. This edge AI system is equipped with comprehensive I/O options, including CANBus for motion and direction control, LAN, USB and optional PoE for camera input, and DI/O for sensor control. The series also has complete worldwide safety and EMC certifications, including CE/FCC, CB, UL, BSMI, CCC, IEC 61000-6-2, and IEC 61000-6-4, making it ideal for real-time video analytics and AI robotics applications in heavy industries. The AIR-030 series supports multiple expansions to better accommodate wireless modules and advanced edge AI applications, with 1 x M.2 B key 2280/3052 for NVME storage and 5G connectivity, 1 x M.2 2230 E key for Wi-Fi connectivity, and 1 x PCIe x16 slot for additional function card support. AI developers can also scale the AIR-030’s performance by adding a 10GbE card for high-speed data transmission or a GPU for high-performance graphics computing.
Streamlined Deployment with Software Integration
The AIR-030 series is bundled with the Linux Ubuntu 20.04 OS environment and supports NVIDIA JetPack 5.0 and above, as well as the NVIDIA Isaac™ robotics platform, thus reducing the time and cost of production AI development. Furthermore, the AIR-030 series also supports Advantech’s DeviceOn and ROS2 Suite software to facilitate the large-scale deployment of AI devices and accelerate robotics application development. DeviceOn enables real-time monitoring in addition to remote control and auto system recovery, and it leverages AI model container functions and OTA updates for batch software, firmware, and inference model updates to empower AI projects quickly. Advantech ROS2 Suite is a robot-oriented application to support development utilities such as Rviz, Movelt, and NAV2 to help connect the peripherals and integrate the add-on SDKs running on Linux. With software integration, the AIR-030 series helps streamline AI project deployment and reduces time-to-market.
