NVIDIA Jetson TX2i Module is Designed for Industrial Environments

Jetson TX2i

NVIDIA Jetson TX2 “Artificial Intelligence Computer” module was announced in March 2017 with a Tegra X2 hexa-core processor, a 256-core Pascal GPU, 8GB RAM, 32GB storage, and support for 4K 60 fps encoding and decoding. But it turns out NVIDIA announced an rugged version of the module dubbed Jetson TX2i designed for reliable operation in harsh industrial environments in March of this year. NVIDIA Jetson TX2 and TX2i are pin-to-pin compatible, and can run the same software, but TX2i has been designed and tested for rougher conditions. Feature Jetson TX2 Jetson TX2i Shock 140G, 2ms 140G, 2ms Vibration 10Hz ~200Hz, 1g & 2g RMS Random: 5g RMS 10 to 500Hz Sinusoidal: 5g RMS 10 to 500Hz Temp Range -25°C – 80°C -40°C – 85°C Humidity 85°C / 85% RH, 168 hours -10°C to 65°C / 95% RH, 240 hours Operating Life 5 Years (GB at 35C: MTBF=1,747,520 hours GF at 35C: MTBF=1,066,851 hours) 10 Years (GB at 45C: 2,505,155 hours …
