Aitech has launched an AI board based around Nvidia’s Jetson GPU with the latest space qualification.
The Series 300 level of qualification was developed to close the gap between in-lab test units and fully qualified, characterized space-rated electronics in order to validate cost-effective COTS space technologies for use in the growing low earth orbit (LEO) and near earth orbit (NEO) space sectors.
Aitech’s S-A1760 Venus radiation-characterized space AI general purpose GPU system is a qualified to Series 300 with the Jetson TX2i system-on-module (SoM). This uses Pascal architecture with 256 CUDA cores and reaches 1 TFLOPS of processing.

“Offering the best in rugged space solutions, regardless of orbit, is what we’ve done for almost 40 years. Not only are we bringing advanced technologies, like GPGPU processing, to lower orbit applications, we continue to build out reliable systems for more long-term and deeper space missions, like being the largest supplier of single board computers for the ISS as well as our work in commercial LEO & GEO constellations, space tourism, human spaceflights and lunar orbiting & terrestrial platforms,” said Anthony Lai Biz Dev and R&D Director for Space at Aitech.
