Advantech Introduces Compact NVIDIA® T4 GPU Edge Computing Solution for Industrial Applications
Taipei, Taiwan, April, 2020 – Advantech, a leading provider of intelligent systems, is happy to announce its GPU edge computing solution with NVIDIA® T4 GPU NVQual Validation: a MIC-770 compact industrial computer equipped with an MIC-75M20-B expansion i-Module. Compatible with the NVIDIA® T4 GPU Card, the GPU edge computing solution supports up to 2,560 CUDA cores and 16GB GDDR6 GPU memory. With compact size (127 x 192 x 230 mm) and a high-scalable design, plus the longevity of the Tesla T4 GPU card, it is an excellent AIoT solution for deep learning and inference applications such as factory automation, automated optical inspection (AOI), AI prediction in medical equipment, and smart sensing in autonomous vehicles.
Innovative Thermal Management Technology Offers Powerful GPU Computing
Featuring a dedicated server-grade air duct design that facilitates enhanced thermal management of the Tesla T4 GPU, the solution maintains a GPU IC operating temperature below 80 °C/176 °F in environmental conditions higher than 40 °C/104 °F. This design significantly reduces the operating temperature to deliver superior GPU performance and clock frequency. Equipped with PCIe Gen3 x16, the edge solution is certified by NVQual for fast, wide-ranging bandwidth and a reliable data processing solution.
