Axiomtek Launches Edge Computer With Dual GPU Expansion For AI Accelerated Processing – IPC972

TAIPEI – Axiomtek – a world-renowned leader relentlessly devoted in the research, development, and manufacturing of innovative and reliable industrial computer products of high efficiency – 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® CoreTM 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 enables to facilitate image processing, real-time control, data analysis, deep learning, AOI, data acquisition, and more automation tasks.

Axiomtek’s IPC972 continues the IPC970 series design, offering flexible expansion options with one I/O module slot, 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. With the compact and front-facing I/O design, the IPC972 provides the advantages of fast set-up and easy access and deployment. For stable operation in mission-critical environments, the IPC972 has a wide operating temperature range of -10°C to +60°C and a power input of 24V DC (uMin=19V/uMax=30V) with power-on delay function, over-voltage protection, over current protection, and reverse voltage protection.

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

The IPC972 comes with four DDR4-2933 ECC/non ECC U-DIMM sockets with a maximum of 128GB 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. In addition, 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 VGA, one HDMI, one 4-pin terminal block, one audio (line-out), and one AT/ATX selectable switch. The IPC972 supports wall mounting for making installation easier. Moreover, the system runs Linux or Windows 10, and support TPM 2.0 for enhancing data and network security.
