ASUS IoT has introduced PE1100N, an ultra-compact laptop for AI (synthetic intelligence) inferencing on the edge, and based mostly on the NVIDIA Jetson Orin collection. It incorporates a design for quiet operation, wealthy industrial connectivity for severe flexibility and helps a spread of energy inputs and working temperatures for optimum sturdiness.
With the Jetson platform, that includes an Arm processor and embedded NVIDIA GPU (graphics processing unit), PE1100N delivers computing with AI-inferencing capabilities, making it ideally suited for various, scalable edge AI purposes in good metropolis, transportation, manufacturing and extra together with site visitors evaluation, people-tracking, counting and surveillance. Additionally, PE1100N’s compact measurement and anti-vibration design make it ideally suited for good manufacturing options, equivalent to automated guided automobile (AGVs), autonomous cellular robots (AMRs), AI-powered automated optical inspection (AOI) and robotics purposes accelerating time to marketplace for AI purposes.
ASUS IoT developed PE1100N to instantly serve the burgeoning smart-manufacturing market, collaborating with NVIDIA. Embedded with NVIDIA Jetson Orin, a platform for AI on the edge, PE1100N gives as much as 100-trillion operations per second (TOPS), low-power (10-25 W) computing for deep studying and computer-vision duties delivering as much as 5X the efficiency of previous-generation units. It additionally realises as much as 18X-better frames-per-watt effectivity than conventional x86-based platforms.
PE1100N additionally permits builders to run AI and machine-learning fashions by leveraging inventory SDK and library instruments, with minimal modifications to the code empowering the Jetson platform to be adopted, facilitating tasks from improvement to deployment. The NVIDIA Isaac robotic working system (ROS) SDK can be supported by PE1100N, enabling the event of ROS 2 tasks.
Industrial-grade design with excessive expandability and connectivity
The ultra-compact PE1100N has a rugged design that features a steel heatsink, and an extruded-aluminum chassis for silent cooling enabling steady, operation throughout a large -20° to 50°C temperature vary.
PE1100N is provided with assortment of I/O ports for various industrial functions, LAN, DIO, COM, USB 3.2 and Sort-A, and, on some fashions, CAN bus. It additionally advantages from a Micro-USB debug port for system upkeep. An non-compulsory Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module ensures easy, wi-fi and cloud connectivity, whereas the M.2 B key is able to accommodate a 4G/5G mobile module together with assist for twin SIM slots. As properly, assist for GPS permits extra exact gadget monitoring and information recording for good transportation options.
PE1100N is out there in two distinct flavours powered by NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX, or Jetson Orin Nano so there’s a mannequin to go well with all AI-performance necessities. ASUS IoT additionally presents board-level configuration to satisfy bespoke buyer requests.
