AAEON has introduced the BOXER-6841M, a box PC designed for edge AI and machine vision applications. The controller comes in six different models, with four AI versions featuring PCIe(x16) slots for the installation of Nvidia GPUs, and two machine vision versions including a pair of PCIe(x8) slots for frame grabber cards.
The BOXER-6841M devices are designed to support either Intel Core i desktop or Xeon server-grade CPUs, and they all possess up to 32GB of DDR4 ECC or non-ECC SODIMM memory and two 2.5-inch drive bays.
AAEON designed the BOXER-6841M with two 12Vdc power inputs in an effort to support the high power requirements of up to 250W GPUs for the four AI models. This will help reduce costs and stabilize the system more by diminishing the level of unused heat that would be produced by a single 24V input.
Each BOXER-6841M SKU has five GbE LAN ports, four USB3.0 ports, two HDMI ports, dual mSATA slots, and an additional PCIe(x1) slot. The machine vision models can also support up to five COM ports to support legacy devices.
“The BOXER-6841M is a range of computers rather than a single machine, and that means we can answer our customers’ image processing requirements, whatever they might be,” said Ethan Chiu, system platform division product manager at AAEON.
