AC100 • DIN Rail Real-Time AI Edge Computing Platform
NVIDIA® Jetson Xavier™ NX

The AC100 is a boxed-computer intended for AI and real-time edge computing. Equipped with the Nvidia® Jetson Xavier™ NX SoM, the Din Rail box was designed for rugged industrial applications such as IIoT or image processing, and has a wide range 9-57VDC power input.
The AC100 provides typical I/O connectors, e.g. DisplayPort, Ethernet, and USB. A PCIe® M.2 SSD is available as internal mass storage. The box comes with the L4T (Linux for Tegra) development suite by Nvidia® , customized by EKF.

For wireless networking, the AC100 is equipped with M.2 connectors for a 4G/5G WWAN and dual Wi-Fi 6 modules.
As an option, the AC100 can be configured as master or slave in distributed multi-processing applications. For this purpose the box is optionally provided with four MPO/MTP optical cabling ports, each suitable for a PCI Express® Gen3 x4 based fiber optical cable up to 100m. Moreover, these PCIe® interfaces can also be used for attachment of demanding peripheral devices such as high resolution cameras.
