Advantech, a provider of industrial edge computing platforms, provides a new series of solutions for embedded computing powered by the latest NVIDIA GPUs.

The newest SKY-MXM-A2000 industrial solution will be released shortly.

Built on the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, providing the highest performance

This industrial-grade GPU-accelerated solution is the first embedded MXM-based module built on the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, which delivers the latest RTX technology. It features real-time ray tracing, accelerated AI, advanced graphics, and high-performance computing capabilities, which is important for embedded computing solutions in enterprise deployments.

Supporting both RT and Tensor Cores for graphics and intensive-compute tasks

SKY-MXM-A2000 is equipped with GDDR6 graphics memory with error correction code (ECC) support for error-free computing. Most importantly, it uses an NVIDIA RTX A2000 embedded GPU, which combines 20 second-generation RT Cores, 80 third-generation Tensor Cores, and up to 2,560 next-generation CUDA cores. SKY-MXM-A2000 fulfills increasing demands for processing power, graphics, and intensive-compute tasks for designers, engineers, and scientists, to support their application development in industries including auto-optical inspection (AOI), medical care, transportation, and gaming.

Compact design with high-end clock rates and low power consumption

The clock rates of SKY-MXM-A2000 range from 1,215 MHz (base) to 1,687 MHz (boost), which can power high performing workstations. Moreover, its compact size and ruggedized design with a small form factor of only 82 x 70 mm allows it to fit into limited spaces — with low power consumption (up to 60W). Its low thermal emissions make it suitable for intelligent systems like those in surgery, autonomous driving, and driver-assisted applications. With 0~55 °C standard operating temperatures, SKY-MXM-A2000 can withstand the demands of harsh industrial environments and ensure workstation stability and durability.

Industrial GPU Solutions with MS-Hybrid model support

SKY-MXM-A2000 supports two optional discrete and MS-Hybrid modes. As a pure accelerator card, it can focus on big data processing in MS-Hybrid mode, which is mainly configured for notebooks and high-end GPUs. In discrete mode, it supports a maximum of four DisplayPort signal outputs. In addition, Advantech's strict revision and engineering change control, as well as its five year product support, will reassure end customers.
