Guelph, ON, March 29, 2016 ― Connect Tech is proud to release Rosie, its latest rugged embedded system, based on the NVIDIA® Jetson™ TX1. Housed in a compact enclosure with optional mounting brackets, Rosie features revolutionary NVIDIA Maxwell™ architecture with 256 CUDA cores delivering over 1 TeraFLOPs of performance with a 64-bit ARM A57 CPU.

Rosie’s rugged system also provides USB, HDMI, 2x Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi, and Bluetooth capabilities. Designed to MIL-STD 810g and DO-160G for shock and vibration as well as IP68 ingress protection rating, the durable Rosie can stand up to just about anything thrown her way.

“Rosie was a natural progression for Connect Tech,” says Michele Kasza, Vice President Sales. “Having received an overwhelming response to the release of our Astro Carrier Board for Jetson TX1 at Embedded World 2016, we quickly identified that a rugged box solution based on the same platform was also in high demand.”
