Advantech Launches TREK-60N, the Pioneering Dual-System Edge AI Platform for Harsh Environments


Taipei, Taiwan, June 2023 – Advantech, a leading provider of in-vehicle computing solutions, is pleased to announce TREK-60N—the pioneering dual-system edge AI computing platform. Designed for high performance computing in harsh environments, TREK-60N is equipped with an Intel® Core™ processor and NVIDIA® Jetson Orin™ NX. It boasts a ruggedized design, including ISO7637-2 compliance, 5M3 shock & vibration resistance, and fanless operation with a wide temperature range. With these features, TREK-60N meets the demanding performance requirements of in-vehicle applications and harsh environments and more on a single platform. 

TREK-60N Dual-System AI Platform

Dual-System Modular Platform Empowers High Computing Demands

To meet the growing demand for computing performance, TREK-60N takes it one step further with its innovative dual-system design. This advanced computing platform is equipped with two embedded processing systems, catering to edge AI applications. Powered by a reliable and powerful Intel® Core™/Atom™ E3940 processor, TREK-60N delivers stable high-performance computing capabilities, ideal for multitasking. Additionally, it integrates the NVIDIA® Jetson Orin™ NX as the AI Accelerator, offering an impressive 70 TOPS of computing ability. This enables real-time multi-stream AI computing and facilitates the simultaneous execution of multiple applications.

Ruggedized to Withstand Operation in Harsh Environments

TREK-60N is purposefully constructed to endure rugged handling in demanding heavy-duty and transport-related environments. Its rugged and industrial-grade design ensures reliable operation within a wide temperature range, even for high-temperature demanding CPUs that can function without airflow and undergo full-function burn-in conditions. The platform also supports 12/24V vehicle power, compliant with ISO 7637-2 standards. For added protection against dust and water, an optional IP65-rated cover can be equipped for the rear I/O. Notably, TREK-60N incorporates an industrial-grade SSD, enhancing its resistance to vibration and shock. It meets EN60721 (5M3) certification standards, enduring 3 Grms of vibration, which is 3 times stronger than MIL-STD-810G requirements.

Futureproof Solution with Easy Expansion and Scalability

TREK-60N is crafted to offer scalability, catering to diverse applications and unique requirements. With its RF extension module and scalable I/O support, seamless migration to RF technologies such as Wi-Fi 6E, 5G, and V2X become effortless. The platform enables convenient expansion and integration of optional peripherals, including advanced driving assistance system (ADAS) modules, enhancing driving safety. Additionally, TREK-60N can be seamlessly paired with second-generation 7" & 10" TREK smart displays through a single-cable connection, facilitating visualization applications.

In-vehicle scenarios that require specific power protection, ignition control design and compatibility with the CANbus protocol.

Heavy industries with harsh environments, where robust and advanced edge computing is required.

Roadside applications that demand multitasking computing ability and a multi-function integrated system.
