Review Display Systems (RDS) now offers a new industrial computer from AAEON. Created to bring high-performance computing to embedded industrial applications, the BOXER-8332AI-CFL PC is powered by 8th and 9th-generation Intel Core and Xeon processors.

FREMONT, CA: AAEON's new industrial computer is currently available through Review Display Systems (RDS). The BOXER-8332AI-CFL PC was designed to offer high-performance computing to embedded industrial applications. It is powered by Intel Core and Xeon processors from the 8th and 9th generations. The primary PC uses the NVIDIA T4 GPGPU to give processing capability to industrial automation and Edge server applications, and it supports a wide selection of passively cooled GPUs. It has a PCIe (x4) slot, a PCIe (x16) slot, and two Mini Card slots for graphics processing, AI accelerators, and video frame grabbers and is designed to provide a robust extension capability. The system can connect to various sensors, cameras, controllers, and other peripherals thanks to a wide range of additional I/O. Six USB3.2 Gen1 connections, four COM ports, three Gigabit Ethernet ports, two HDMI outputs, and an optional 8-bit digital I/O port are among the available features. The system can accommodate up to 128GB of RAM, allowing limitless processing.

The Embedded division manager at RDS remarked that the new AAEON BOXER-8332AI-CFL has the processing performance to power demanding industrial applications. Customers may power a wide range of industrial automation and IoT-based applications by utilizing the system's expansion capacity or using NVIDIA graphics cards. The PC has a revolutionary thermal design that supports CPUs with up to 71W TDP (thermal design power), allowing for dependable operation in temperatures from -20C to 60C without sacrificing performance. Furthermore, it is intended for and tested in harsh operating situations, with the system can survive up to 1G vibrations and 5G drop and shock impacts when equipped with a GPU. Its mechanical dimensions are modest, allowing it to be used in machine cabinets or enclosed places.
