Adlink has launched the industry’s first AI camera powered by Nvidia’s Jetson Xavier NX GPU system-on-module (SoM).
The NEON-2000-JNX is aimed at AI vision designs in manufacturing, logistics, retail, service, agriculture, smart city, healthcare and life sciences, and other edge applications. The camera is an all-in-one solution, eliminating the traditional need for complex integration of the image sensor module, cables, and AI box PC.
The Nvidia Jetson Xavier NX provides more than 10X the performance of its widely adopted predecessor, the TX2. The NEON-2000-JNX series integrates this performance using a SoM to simplify the deployment process and speed up the time to market. Integratig the SoM also overcomes EMC, EDS, vibration and thermal problems as well as interface compatibility issues, image drops caused by fault camera and OS settings, and other common reliability issues.
"Until now, a typical AI vision solution required a complex integration of the image sensor module, cables and GPU modules. This ready-to-develop edge AI smart camera reduces the effort of software/hardware integration and reliability validation, allowing AI vision developers to focus on application development. The NEON-2000-JNX series is a hassle-free, compact, reliable and powerful product for edge AI applications, and also the best match for AI software providers,” said Kevin Hsu, Senior Product Manager of ADLINK’s IoT Solutions and Technology business unit, Adlink.
“AI-driven machine vision is reshaping entire industries from robotics and retail to healthcare, manufacturing and more,” said Murali Gopalakrishna, Head of Product Management, Autonomous Machines and General Manager for Robotics at NVIDIA. “With the ADLINK smart camera kits powered by the Jetson edge AI platform, developers get an integrated, easy to deploy solution for AI vision-based embedded and industrial AIoT applications.”
The NEON-2000-JNX Series includes an optimised operating system and GUI and supports six sensor configurations in total between 1.2M-8M to deliver raw data and complete image detail for machine vision, including four image sensors with Basler.
