NEXCOM’s Compact ATC 3530 with NVIDIA® Jetson Xavier™ NX Brings IP67 Protection to In-Vehicle AI Edge Computing
The NVIDIA® Jetson™ series opens the door to powerful edge computing without the overhead of power-hungry GPU add-on cards. The NVIDIA® Jetson Xavier™ NX strikes the right balance between power savings and onboard processing power on a single space-saving SoM. Now, the NEXCOM ATC 3530 harnesses that power by combining in-vehicle functionality with AI-aided recognition computing into an IP67 compact fanless embedded system ready for vehicle-to-everything (V2X) inference workloads.
Robust and AI-Ready
The ATC 3530 has an NVIDIA® Jetson Xavier™ NX SoM, with 384 NVIDIA CUDA® Cores, 48 Tensor Cores, 6 Carmel ARM CPUs, and two NVIDIA® Deep Learning Accelerators (NVDLA) engines, together delivering 21 TOPS, and making it ideal for high-performance compute and AI. The ATC 3530 sets itself as a key piece for implementing V2X in the smart city development puzzle, working together with other technologies such as M-to-M, X2X, AIoT gateways and nodes, and cloud-edge AI over mesh wireless. Importantly, for industrial embedded systems, the Xavier NX also includes a long life cycle past 2026. The ATC 3530 is compact enough for installation in confined spaces, and it is rated IP67, certification of its protection against dust and water. Together, these features make it ideal for AI-aided in-vehicle applications.
High-Resolution Video For Accurate AI Recognition
Accurate AI inference hinges on the resolution of the video input. Simply put, the higher the quality, the more accurately the AI can “see” what it needs to see. Video support is up to 16x the 1080p30 decoder power, equating to 16 IP cameras with a resolution of 1080p at 30 frames per second. As 4k2k is precisely 4x the bandwidth of 1080p30, the four video inputs on the ATC 3530 handle up to 4k2k each. Two ATC 3530 models are available, with two different video capture technologies: Ethernet package IP CAM and MIPI SerDes.
GbE PoE: Four GbE PoE connectors on the ATC 3530-IP7-4C support up to four 4k2k IP cameras. Video streams are encoded at the camera end, and the ATC 3530 has a powerful hardware decoder capable of decoding all four encoded video streams at a time.
MIPI SerDes: Four MIPI connectors on the ATC 3530-IP7-4M support four MIPI cameras with some notable improvements over traditional MIPI. Uncompressed video streams are usually limited to 50cm cable lengths, but this model supports V-by-One SerDes technology to reach 25 meters (12 meters for 4k2k). The system uses an encoder chip at the MIPI V-by-One SerDes camera, and the ATC 3530 decodes the incoming video stream.
Dedicated to Demanding Applications
The ATC 3530 models are ideal for several demanding applications that require a combination of AI processing power and robust hardware.
The NEXCOM ATC 3530 is the ideal rugged computer for AI inference in harsh environments. With its NVIDIA® Jetson Xavier™ NX SoM, combined with a low-power, fanless, dustproof, and waterproof design, it’s the system to bring your AI-powered in-vehicle applications to fruition.
