Aitech A176

NVIDIA® Jetson TX1 System on Module, Ultra Small Form Factor

Manufacturer: Aitech
Aitech A176

The A176 Cyclone is the smallest and most powerful Rugged-GPGPU, ideally suited for distributed systems.

Its 256 CUDA cores reach 1 TFLOPS at a remarkable level of energy efficiency, providing all the power you need for local processing right where you need it, next to your sensors.

With its compact size, the A176 Cyclone is the most advanced solution for video and signal processing for the next generation of autonomous vehicles, surveillance and targeting systems, EW systems, and many other applications.
