BOXER-8651AI: Compact, Rugged PC with NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX Power


Industry-leading designer and manufacturer of edge AI solutions, AAEON, has released the BOXER-8651AI, a compact fanless embedded AI System powered by the NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX module. Consequently, the BOXER-8651AI takes advantage of the module’s NVIDIA Ampere architecture GPU, featuring 1024 CUDA and 32 Tensor Cores, along with support for NVIDIA JetPack™ 5.0 and above to provide users with accelerated graphics, data processing, and image classification.

With a fanless chassis measuring just 105mm x 90mm x 52mm, the BOXER-8651AI is an extremely small solution that houses a dense range of interfaces, including DB-9 and DB-15 ports for RS-232 (Rx/Tx/CTS/RTS)/RS-485, CANBus, and DIO functions. Additionally, the device provides HDMI 2.1 display output, GbE LAN, and a variety of USB Type-A ports, supporting both USB 3.2 Gen 2 and USB 2.0 functionality.

The BOXER-8651AI, despite containing such powerful AI performance for its size, is built to operate in rugged conditions, boasting a -5°F to 131°F (-15°C to 55°C) temperature range alongside anti-shock and vibration resistance features. Consequently, the PC is ideally suited for wall mounted deployment across a range of environments.

For storage, the system offers an M.2 3052 B-Key slot to accommodate M.2 2242 B+M Key SSDs and an M.2 2230 E-Key slot, ensuring users can take full advantage of the NVIDIA JetPack 5.0 software stack. Alternatively, these expansion options provide support for add-on modules to facilitate wireless communication, such as 5G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
