Ideal Platform for compute-intensive rugged embedded applications

With its NVIDIA Xavier computing power, rugged design, and PCIe/104 expansion capability, Elton offers the ideal platform for implementing high performance computing and AI applications in mobile and harsh environments.

Elton utilizes the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier embedded computer module to deliver unmatched performance for AI, machine learning, image processing, and other compute-intensive tasks. The Xavier module delivers up to 30 TeraOps in performance (3 x 1013 operations per second) at a maximum power dissipation of 30 watts. Xavier also offers scalable performance for applications requiring lower overall power consumption of 10 or 15 watts. The module runs at 32 TOPs on a 512-core Volta GPU with Tensor Cores and accelerators, enabling high-performance AI-powered autonomous machines like never before. At 87 x 100mm (3.4 x 3.9") it is slightly bigger than the other Jetson modules.

Elton provides numerous sockets for I/O expansion. An industry-standard camera module socket supports the attachmentof up to 8 CSI cameras (up to 4 cameras with 4K resolution). An M.2 socket supports the use of PCIe x4 NVMe flash storage up to 256GB. An LTE module socket supports the use of NimbeLink SkyWire cellular modems, featuring a broad range of solutions with worldwide compatibility.

Standard PC-style I/O on Elton includes 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 3.1 ports, HD audio, HDMI and LVDS display, and4 RS-232/422/485 ports with software configurability. All I/O is provided on pin headers that are compatible with both common non-latching and rugged latching mating cables, making Elton ideal for applications in environments subject to high shock and vibration.

NVIDIA Meets PC/104

Unique among NVIDIA computing module carriers, Elton employs a PCI/104-Express expansion socket. The socket provides support for PCI-104, PCIe/104 type 2 (x8 lane), and PCIe/104 OneBank expansion modules (4 x1 lanes), enabling rapid creation of truly rugged, custom-configured, high performance, PCIe-based solutions using off-the-shelf I/O modules from a large number of manufacturers worldwide. Typical PCIe/104 I/O expansion includes 1G/10G Ethernet, video capture, and high resolution video display. A wide variety of industrial I/O modules, including analog, digital, serial, motion control, and other types is also available.

Data Acquisition

A built-in data acquisition circuit provides 12-bit A/D up to 1MSPS, 12-bit D/A, and 3.3V GPIO. Diamond’s free C-language programming library simplifies application development, while a GUI control panel offers convenient control and monitoring of real-world processes as well as ready-to-run data logging capability.

Elton includes a suite of rugged features that make it ideal for applications requiring rugged, reliable performance:

PCI/104-Express expansion: Unique in the Nvidia ecosystem, Elton bridges the world of Nvidia higher performance computing and image processing capabilities with the world of PC/104 rugged systems. Elton includes a PCI/104-Express expansion socket with PCIe x8, PCIe x1, and optional PCI expansion capabilities to enable the installation of hundreds of I/O boards to provide additional I/O capabilities.

Wide temperature operation: Elton is designed to operate over the full -40 to +85C industrial temperature range, making it the perfect companion to the ATX Xavier Industrial module for harsh environment applications.

Thicker PCB: A 50% thicker PCB (2.3mm vs. 1.6mm typical) helps resist flexing that can lead to broken solder joints in high vibration environments.

Latching connectors: Virtually all connectors offer positive latching to prevent disconnection due to shock and vibration.

Conduction cooling: A bottom side combination heat spreader / mounting plate with embedded thermal pads provides the ultimate in thermal dissipation as well as convenient mounting inside the enclosure.
