Online PR News – 08-September-2022 – City of Industry, California – Axiomtek, a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative and reliable high-performance industrial computer products – is proud to introduce 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 enhances the facilitation of image processing, real-time control, data analysis, deep learning, AOI, data acquisition and more.

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. For stable operation in mission-critical environments, the Industrial pc has a wide operating temperature range of -10°C to +60°C and a power input of 24V DC with power-on delay function, over-current, over-voltage and reverse voltage protection.

The Industrial computer comes with four DDR4-2933 ECC/non-ECC U-DIMM sockets with a maximum of 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. Furthermore, 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 4-pin terminal block and one AT/ATX selectable switch. Also, it supports wall mount and TPM 2.0 for enhancing data and network security.

“The IPC972 is designed to support dual NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 3090 GPU cards to accelerate high-performance graphics for enhancing AI applications at the edge. A single modular I/O slot can be easily expanded with the integration of different I/O modules – AX93511, AX93512, AX93516, and AX93519 making the IPC972 the ideal and scalable solution for multi-application requests,” said Ivy Lee, product manager of the AIoT Division at Axiomtek.
