Guelph, Ontario, April 24, 2018 – Connect Tech’s NVIDIA® Jetson™ solutions now support the recently released NVIDIA Jetson TX2i module. The Jetson TX2i module provides high reliability in harsh environments. The module offers an extended operating temperature range (-40°C – 85°C), support for ECC memory, a long operating life (MTBF), as well as an extended 10 year life cycle. Ideal for high performance edge computing, the TX2i can be used with industrial robots, machine vision cameras and portable medical equipment.

Connect Tech has validated the Jetson TX2i across its full line of Jetson solutions and can immediately offer TX2i support on all carrier board offerings (Astro, Elroy, Orbitty, Sprocket, Spacely and Cogswell). In addition to carrier board support, we are proud to announce that Rudi, Rosie, and Cogswell Vision System have been validated and are also available with TX2i support.

“Ensuring support for TX2i has been a priority for Connect Tech since its announcement,” says Michele Kasza, Vice President of Sales. “A large segment of our customer base has a need for long life cycle along with ruggedized computing; this customer set has embraced the Jetson TX2/TX1 and can now go to market with the TX2i knowing their needs are met.”
