NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX/Nano SOM:
Unleashing the Power of AI Computing in a Compact Form
The iEP-6010E Series is offered in a variety of configurations – for example, the iEP-6010E which is based on the powerful NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX SOM (‘System on Module’) with 16GB 128-bit LPDDR5 memory. There’s also the iEP-6011E with the same Jetson Orin NX SOM but with 8GB memory, the iEP-6012E based on the NVIDIA Jetson Orin Nano SOM with 8GB memory – and the iEP-6013E based on the NVIDIA Jetson Orin Nano SOM with 4GB memory.
The NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX 16GB SOM delivers exceptional performance with up to 100 SPARSE (50 DENSE) INT8 TOPS, surpassing the capabilities of the previous NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX SOM by almost 5 times.
The compact footprint of the Basic SKU measures 55 x 170 x 134mm (W x H X D) and 68 x 170 x 134mm for the PoE/5G SKU. The iEP-6010E Series, whether powered by the Jetson Orin NX or the Orin Nano SOM, provides a significant boost to AI processing power for embedded and edge computing devices, allowing for increased performance within the constraints of size, weight and power budgets.
