Newest Elma Rugged SFF AI System Powered by NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin System-on-Module

Elma Electronic has expanded its line of rugged small form factor (SFF) edge computing systems to include the JetSys-5330, based on the powerful NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Orin™ system-on-module (SoM). The new rugged AI platform delivers up to 275 TOPS and numerous expansion sites for custom I/O and storage requirements, making the JetSys-5330 an ideal platform for rugged, deployed deep learning applications.

By enabling advanced data processing in harsh environments, the JetSys-5330 is ideal for several rugged and mission-critical applications utilizing wireless multi-access edge computing as well as those in remote or outdoor environments. Rugged industrial applications, including robotics and autonomous mining, agriculture, and construction vehicles, can also benefit from the JetSys-5330 edge computing capabilities.  

Mark Littlefield, director of system products for Elma Electronic, commented, “The power of AI brought to the edge by this latest NVIDIA Jetson-based JetSys platform is enhanced by the versatile and extensive I/O interfaces and storage capabilities. This new system can handle multiple concurrent video pipelines, enhancing data handling and processing power for rugged systems.”

The NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin is a powerful SoM for AI applications, featuring a 2048-core NVIDIA Ampere architecture GPU with 64 Tensor Cores and a 12-core Arm® Cortex®-A78AE. Deep learning and vision accelerators, a video encoder/decoder, high-speed I/O, 204 GB/s of memory bandwidth, and up to 64 GB of DRAM contribute to its impressive processing capabilities.

Easily configurable and expandable to meet mission requirements, the JetSys-5330 combines the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin module with Elma’s new JetKit-3110 carrier card, which provides the necessary power and interfaces for the SoM as well as three mini-PCIe slots (one that doubles as mSATA) and two M.2 slots (one B-Key and one M-Key) for custom I/O or fixed storage expansion. 

The platform’s rugged design is IP67 rated and qualified to standards including MIL-STD-810G, MIL-HDBK-704F, MIL-STD-1275D, and others. The platform’s power consumption ranges from 53 W to 130 W, depending on the system configuration. Maximum weight is 16 lbs with an optionally available fan kit.
