Embedded system for aerospace/defence

31 July 2019 Computer/Embedded Technology

Connect Tech has added a rugged embedded system to its Nvidia Jetson AGX Xavier line of products.

The Jetson AGX Xavier is a powerful ‘AI’ computer that provides high-end GPU workstation performance in a compact package that operates under 30 Watts.

Connect Tech’s Sentry-X is built around the Jetson AGX Xavier and brings out a wide assortment of I/Os. Some of the features provided include 2x gigabit Ethernet, 3x USB 3.1, 2x CAN 2.0b, 1x RS-232, 1x RS-422/485, 1x UART 3,3 V TTL, and 8x GPIO.

Sentry-X is well positioned for customers in aerospace and defence, as well as any market or application that can benefit from the performance of the Jetson AGX Xavier packaged in a rugged enclosure. Sentry-X is designed to meet MIL-STD-810G as well as DO-160G standards for shock and vibration, along with ingress protection of IP67.

Sentry-X is designed to bring all the I/O out to one panel and terminate to rugged Fischer MiniMax connectors (except for 1x USB 3.0/3.1, which also contains USB OTG, along with 3x status LEDs found on the opposite panel). The flexible I/O front-end also lends itself well to 38999 or M12 style connectors.

Careful thought has gone into expansion, ensuring that mass storage can be added as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and analog frame grabbers. The Sentry-X also comes with a docking station that allows for quick release if the removal or replacement of a Sentry-X compute module is needed.
