Or-Akiva, Israel – January 30, 2023 — Gidel, an Israel-based technology company specializing in high-speed image acquisition and processing, today announced the addition of the new NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX™ 16GB System-on-Module (SoM) to Gidel’s high-bandwidth FantoVision family. announced that A compact computer for vision at the edge.
With up to 100 sparse TOPS, the Jetson Orin NX 16GB module increases the AI processing power of FantoVision computers by 5x. Combined with Gidel’s high-speed camera interface and FPGA-based frame grabbing and processing technology, the new processor delivers unprecedented capabilities. Potential for real-time, low-latency image processing at the edge for industrial machine vision and other applications. Equipped with 10GigE, CoaXPress 12, and Camera Link interfaces, it acquires, processes, and compresses images at over 1 gigapixel per second.
FantoVision: Off-the-shelf computer for vision at the edge
Gidel’s FantoVision edge computers are specifically designed to give high-end imaging and vision system developers easy access to NVIDIA Jetson modules. They combine NVIDIA Jetson processors with high-bandwidth camera interfaces and Gidel’s acclaimed FPGA-based frame grabbing and acceleration technology. The result is a ready-to-use, compact, low-power industrial computer that meets the highest image acquisition standards.
Gidel’s high bandwidth interfaces such as 10GigE, CoaXPress 12 and Camera Link allow FantoVision computers to capture and process images at up to 40 Gbit/s for high resolution, high speed or multi-camera applications.
A Unique Platform for AI Machine Vision
The NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX 16GB module delivers 5X the performance of the previous generation Jetson Xavier NX platform at 100 TOPS and 21 TOPS respectively. It also features a new generation of more powerful CPUs and GPUs. This level of performance enables real-time processing of the high image data throughput provided by Gidel frame grabbers at more than 1 gigapixel per second using the NVIDIA JetPack SDK.
This makes FantoVision a unique solution for machine vision system designers who want to run deep learning models at the edge without sacrificing real-time processing power.
“Gidel’s FPGA and image processing know-how combined with NVIDIA accelerated computing breaks new barriers between AI and machine vision,” said Reuven Weintraub, Gidel founder and CTO. . “Our NVIDIA Jetson Orin-based FantoVision edge computer gives vision system engineers a turnkey solution for implementing AI in machine vision systems.”
Gidel will unveil the new FantoVision powered by the NVIDIA Jetson Orin edge AI platform at the Embedded World show March 14-16, 2023 in Nuremberg, Germany.
