Introduction

Nuvo-7168GC series is a ruggedized AI inference platform supporting NVIDIA® RTX A2000 GPU which offers better longevity for industrial AI inference applications, such as machine vision inspection, machine automation, and intelligent video analytics. Operating with NVIDIA® RTX A2000, Nuvo-7168GC delivers 8 TFLOPS in FP32 GPU computing power for real-time AI inference.

Nuvo-7168GC inherits the market-proven passive cooling design for motherboard components; Neousys’ patented Cassette module to segregate electrical and heat interferences; the innovative “tunneled ” ventilation design for add-on cards that can efficiently dissipate the heat generated by RTX A2000, and together, they sustain optimum performance for both the CPU and GPU in high-temperature environments.

Nuvo-7168GC series offers an abundance of cutting-edge I/O connections. It has six GbE ports and eight USB3.1 ports for connecting to industrial cameras or IP cameras. An M.2 2280 NVMe interface is provided internally for fast storage access supporting over 2000 MB/s read/ write speeds. Moreover, Nuvo-7168GC supports Neousys’ proprietary MezIO interface for further I/O expansions such as isolated DIO, COM ports, or more GbE ports.

By supporting RTX A2000, Nuvo-7168GC series provides a great cost/ performance ratio for AI inference computing and superior system longevity so users need not worry about the frequent change of GPU configuration. Nuvo-7168GC is the ideal ruggedized AI inference platform for emerging industrial edge AI applications.
