Sunnyvale, California — January 27, 2019 — Diamond Systems, a leading global provider for rugged, I/O-rich embedded computing solutions, has introduced STEVIE, a carrier board solution built to deliver AI-at-the-edge high performance computing based on NVIDIA® Jetson™ AGX Xavier™ modules. Packed with I/O and expandability, STEVIE targets a range of AI, machine learning, image processing and other compute-intensive tasks.
STEVIE offers a combination of latching and commercial connectors for flexibility and convenience. The front edge features industry-standard connectors for dual Ethernet, dual USB, HDMI, and power input. This enables the creation of a low-cost quick-assembly box-level product. Additional I/O, including a second HDMI port, dual CAN ports, serial ports, and additional USB ports, is available on a series of latching connectors for applications requiring greater functionality. Expansion sockets include M.2 2280 flashdisk, PCIe minicard, and a camera module connector that enables interfacing to a range of embedded high-resolution cameras designed for the Jetson ecosystem. The carrier board measures 92 x 105mm (~ 3.6” x 4.1″), just slightly larger than the AGX Xavier module (87 x 100mm). This size enables Stevie to provide the maximum amount of I/O in the smallest size while supporting full-size 2280 M.2 flashdisk modules.
STEVIE integrates a compact, cost-effective yet full-featured data acquisition circuit with analog input, analog output, and digital I/O to interface to the “real world” of analog and digital sensors and controls. A programming library provides support for rapid development of custom applications, while a ready-to-run application with graphical user interface provides convenient real-time control of the data acquisition I/O as well as data logging.
Diamond’s Family of Solutions for NVIDIA Jetson Computer Modules
STEVIE is the newest member of Diamond Systems’ family of solutions for delivering AI-at-the-edge high performance computing solutions based on NVIDIA Jetson modules. The family currently includes four carrier boards, as well as a finished system housed in an ultra-compact enclosure and a low-cost enclosure for the NVIDIA Jetson Nano development kit. These solutions target a range of industrial and military applications, with a focus on harsh environments such as vehicles and other outdoor applications.
