Ushering in a more flexible way to bring applications to market, the BOXER-8224AI is an edge AI solution with a difference. Comprised of a carrier board with a heatsink and NVIDIA® Jetson Nano™ module, the BOXER-8224AI is uniquely designed to offer system-level capabilities on a tiny form factor. With the board’s coastline I/O replaced with pin-wafers, including MIPI-CSI camera connectors, it maintains the functionality of a system-level solution with the flexibility of a board, making it the smart choice for applications that require sophisticated interfaces in limited installation spaces, such as drones.
Sporting two MIPI-CSI camera connectors, the BOXER-8224AI offers a high-speed, reliable, and power-efficient imaging interface, allowing users to incorporate smaller, more cost-effective peripheral cameras for space-limited deployment settings, such as drones. This attribute also increases the quality and longevity of such applications, offering triple the bandwidth of cameras connected via ethernet cameras and far more stability and reliability than USB cameras.
The BOXER-8224AI gives creators the ultimate flexibility of choosing the functions they require. To achieve this, AAEON’s precise board design removed the bulk of physical I/O ports on the board’s coastline, replacing them with wafers. Therefore, despite its port-less layout, the BOXER-8224AI offers connectors via pin-wafer for I/O features including GbE, USB 3.2, HDMI 2.0, UART, and GPIO. This innovative layout not only gives application developers modular flexibility, but also leaves room for MicroSD, Mini Card, and M.2 expansion slots for Wi-Fi, 4G, and additional storage.
Measuring just 4.7” x 3.1” x 0.8” (120mm x 80mm x 22mm), the BOXER-8224AI can be deployed near-universally and without concern for the space limitations that full system solutions often encounter. Further, its exceptional visual interface and UART function enabling 9-axis IMU sensor connectivity mean the BOXER-8224AI is both functionally and aesthetically built for drones. However, these features also lend their utility to people-counting and public safety applications, while the board’s wide -20°C ~ 60°C temperature range facilitates its use in industrial settings, such as a smart manufacturing quality assurance device.
