AAEON Compact Fanless Embedded Box PC Features NVIDIA Jetson Xavier-NX or Nano SoM

NVIDIA Jetson Xavier-NX module was officially launched about a week ago, and at the time we noted several carrier boards and mini PCs were launched or announced from companies like D3 Engineering, Diamond Systems, and Connect Tech.

We should expect many new Jetson Xavier-NX embedded mini PC announcements over the next few weeks and months, and AAEON has now announced two new similar compact fanless embedded box PCs namely Boxer-8221AI and BOXER-8251AI with the same designed but powered by respectively Jetson Nano and Jetson Xavier-NX modules.

AAEON fanless Jetson Xavier-NX Embedded Box PCBoth models should share the same specifications except for the module:

AAEON Credit Card sized Embedded PCThe embedded box computer slightly bigger than a credit card, and packs a lot of processing power in such a small factor. The company does not directly rely on the Linux image provided by NVIDIA, but instead AAEON ACLinux 4.9 based on Ubuntu 18.04, that’s probably a just variant of NVIDIA’s Ubuntu image.

AAEON Boxer-8221AI fanless embedded box PC is already for sale for $365.00, and more details can be found on the product page. AAEON has also published a product page for the preliminary AAEON BOxer-8251AI, but there are some errors such as “10/100/1000Base-TX x 5” which may be because they copied and paste the specifications from their earlier Jetson Nano based AAEON BOXER-8220AI rugged PC.

Great looking case… only thing needed is an outdoor weatherproofed model and the fun would begin. 🙂
