AAEON launched the BOXER-6841M, a box PC built for both edge AI and machine vision applications. The controller is available in six different SKUs, with four AI models featuring PCIe(x16) slots for the installation of Nvidia GPUs, and two machine vision models fitted with a pair of PCIe(x8) slots for frame grabber cards.
Different BOXER-6841M models are built to support either Intel Core i desktop or Xeon server grade CPUs, and they all boast up to 32GB of DDR4 ECC or non-ECC SODIMM memory and two 2.5” drive bays.
The four AI models can be fitted with up to 250W GPUs. To support the high power requirements of these GPUs, AAEON has designed the BOXER-6841M with two 12Vdc power inputs. This innovative feature lowers costs and makes the system more stable by reducing the level of wasted heat that would be produced by a single 24V input.
ALL BOXER-6841M SKUs feature 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, AAEON system platform division product manager.
