Axiomtek is introducing the IPC972, its new industrial edge AI system with dual GPU support. The highly expandable edge computer supports the Intel Xeon or 10th gen Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processor (code name: Comet Lake S) with the Intel W480E chipset. With the ability to support two NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 GPU cards, the IPC972 facilitates image processing, real-time control, data analysis, deep learning, AOI, data acquisition, and more automation tasks.
Axiomtek’s IPC972 continues the IPC970 series design, offering flexible expansion options with one I/O module slot, and four PCIe slots. In addition, it has one M.2 Key B 3042/3050 slot with SIM slot for 5G wireless connection, one M.2 Key E 2234 slot for Wi-Fi/Bluetooth modules and one full-size PCIe Mini Card slot with SIM slot for Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/LTE modules. With the compact and front-facing I/O design, the IPC972 provides the advantages of fast set-up and easy access and deployment. For stable operation in mission-critical environments, the IPC972 has a wide operating temperature range of -10°C to +60°C and a power input of 24V DC (uMin=19V/uMax=30V) with a power-on delay function, over-voltage protection, over current protection, and reverse voltage protection.
The IPC972 comes with four DDR4-2933 ECC/non-ECC U-DIMM sockets with 128GB of system memory. This edge AI computer is equipped with two swappable 2.5-inch SSDs/HDDs, an optional internal 2.5-inch SSD/HDD with the support of Intel RAID 0,1, and one M.2 Key M 2280 socket for NVMe SDD. In addition, the intelligent computing system supports rich I/O options including one 2.5GbE LAN port, one GbE LAN port, eight USB 3.2 ports, one internal USB 2.0 port, one VGA, one HDMI, one 4-pin terminal block, one audio (line-out), and one AT/ATX selectable switch. The IPC972 supports wall mounting to make installation easier. Moreover, the system runs Linux or Windows 10 and supports TPM 2.0 for enhancing data and network security.
Axiomtek’s edge computer with dual GPU expansion, the IPC972, is available now.
