Nuvo-8108GC industrial-grade GPU computing edge AI platform

Backplane Systems Technology has released Neousys’ Nuvo-8108GC rugged GPU computing edge AI platform with industrial-grade design and in-vehicle features. Designed specifically to support a high-end 250W NVIDIA graphics card, it offers tremendous GPU power up to 14 TFLOPS in FP32 for emerging GPU-accelerated edge computing, such as autonomous driving, vision inspection, and surveillance/security.

Nuvo-8108GC is powered by Intel Xeon E or 9th/ 8th-Gen Core (up to 8-core/16-thread) CPUs coupled with workstation-grade Intel C246 chipset to support up to 128 GB ECC or non-ECC DDR4 memory. The system incorporates an internal 2.5-inch HDD/ SSD tray and one hot-swappable 2.5-inch HDD/ SSD tray for easy replacement. There is also an M.2 2280 NVMe socket for the fast read/write performance. Its front-accessible GbE and USB 3.1 Gen1/ Gen2 ports feature screw-lock mechanisms for securing cable connections. In addition to the x16 PCIe slot (8-lanes) for GPU installation, Nuvo-8108GC has another two x8 PCIe slots (4-lanes) and one x16 PCIe slot (8-lanes) for expansion cards to extend function sets like data collection, analytics, and communication.

The Nuvo-8108GC has a brand new power delivery design to accept 8~48V wide-range DC input to handle heavy power requirements from 250W GPU. Along with built-in ignition control, it is possible to be deployed in a vehicle and be directly powered via the car’s electrical system. Nuvo-8108GC incorporates Neousys’ patented heat dissipation design, damping brackets, and patent-pending GPU press bar, making it steady and rock-solid in various conditions.

The Nuvo-8108GC is Neousys’ response to the never-ending demand of TFLOPS in industrial GPU platforms. With industrial-grade power, thermal and mechanical design, it pushes versatile AI inference applications from laboratories to field applications, where reliability matters.
