We turned our attention to Connect Tech’s fantastic line up for the NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Xavier™ module in our Featured Products series this week. 

And why not? The Jetson AGX Xavier provides server level power in a module that you can hold in the palm of your hand. With its Volta GPU with 512 CUDA cores and 64 Tensor cores, it can achieve AI performance of 32 TOPs. The NVIDIA JetPack SDK provides algorithm libraries, APIs and ancillary software products designed to allow developers to meet the full range of AI challenges.  

NVIDIA leads the way in innovating for AI, deep learning, and robotics. Connect Tech makes it possible to instantly deploy the power of the Jetson AGX Xavier module with carrier boards and complete systems. Connect Tech's Jetson experts help developers unlock the power of the platform every day.

The recently announced Jetson AGX Xavier Industrial (JAXi) module features the same form factor and pinout of the original, but provides extended temperature support (-40°C to +85°C), shock and vibration resistance, and a doubled operating lifetime support of 10 years. The JAXi sports ECC RAM (32GB) providing error detection and correction. In combination with the added Safety Cluster Engine (SCE) built around dual Cortex-R5 cores, the JAXi provides integrated fault-detection mechanisms and lock-step subsystems.

NVIDIA has also announced the new Jetson AGX Orin™. The AGX Orin shares the 100mm x 87mm form factor and pinout of the AGX Xavier, but it boasts 6 times the performance of the AGX Xavier. AGX Orin features an integrated Ampere architecture GPU with 2048 CUDA cores and 12 Arm Cortex-A78AE “Hercules” CPU cores. The Jetson AGX Orin will take its place as the lead product for robotics and AI and Connect Tech will be ready to provide carriers and complete systems for the AGX Orin.

While Connect Tech has been busy designing new products, they’ve also been hitting the workbenches to test and evaluate substitute components for their products! The global chip shortage drags on and on, and now even passive components, connectors, and adhesives are growing scarce. With over 30 years of experience in hardware design and manufacturing, Connect Tech has learned a lot of lessons about what it takes to keep products available for their customers!

The key feature is availability! The Connect Tech Rogue AGX111 is an extremely small carrier board for the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier module. Deployable out of the box with 3 USB, 2 HDMI, 2 GbE, and locking Mini-Fit Jr. Power input connector! Redesigned to take advantage of available components!

Aerospace, Defense, Rugged Environments: Connect Tech’s Sentry-X brings you the awesome performance of the NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Xavier™ in a rugged enclosure with a broad offering of IO! It has a unique docking station that allows for the quick release of the Sentry-X!

Smart cities, autonomous vehicles, and robots are all easy applications for the Rudi-AGX from Connect Tech. It is an out-of-the-box solution for handling all your sensors and running your AI program at Maximum Performance while maintaining a safe operating temperature. Powered by NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Xavier™ ~ of course!

Need a boost? The Mimic Adapter from Connect Tech allows the NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Xavier™ module to be installed onto an NVIDIA Jetson TX2/TX2i carrier. The AGX Xavier has 20x the compute performance and is 10x more energy efficient than the TX2! The AGX Xavier guarantees a huge performance boost for autonomous machines and edge devices! In Stock!
