Gumstix AI Series for NVIDIA Jetson Nano Features TensorFlow Pre-Integration for Machine Learning and Neural Networking Development

Share Article

Gumstix®, Inc. announced the release of four Edge AI devices designed to meet the demands of machine-learning applications moving massive data from the networks edge. Powered by the NVIDIA Jetson Nano running a Quad-core ARM A57, the Gumstix AI development boards feature built in TensorFlow support to make edge AI prototyping more accessible for software engineers and provide a rapid turnkey solution for deployment.

The Gumstix Nano Snapshot Board controls up to 16 1080p 30fps video streams into one board. Four Jetson Nano Boards are interconnected via a Gigabit switch and controlled remotely by an ESP32 module.

“This new AI series of expansion boards, featuring the SnapShot, and our support of the NVIDIA Nano, grows from our belief in the power and primacy of neural-network algorithms,” says W.Gordon Kruberg, M.D., Head of Modular Hardware, Altium, LLC.

Gumstix®, Inc., a leader in computing hardware for intelligent embedded applications, announced the release of four Edge AI devices designed to meet the demands of machine-learning applications moving massive data from the networks edge.

Powered by the NVIDIA Jetson Nano running a Quad-core ARM A57, the Gumstix AI development boards feature built in TensorFlow support to make edge AI prototyping more accessible for software engineers and provide a rapid turnkey solution for deployment.

Gumstix AI devices streamline the software-hardware integration and provide users the following benefits:

  • Easy to customize modular designs available in the Geppetto app.
  • GPU enabled TensorFlow support.
  • Customizable OS (Yocto) for rapid and simple deployment.

“Ever since launching our first products in 2003- running a full Linux implementation in the size of a stick of gum - we have sought to make the world of tiny devices more and more powerful.” says W.Gordon Kruberg, M.D., Head of Modular Hardware, Altium, Inc., “This new AI series of expansion boards, featuring the SnapShot, and our support of the NVIDIA Nano, grows from our belief in the power and primacy of neural-network algorithms.”

The Gumstix Snapshot with up to 16 video streams along with the 3 other new boards, are now available for purchase at http://www.gumstix.com. In addition, users are able to also easily customize the form, fit and function of these modular designs online and receive a customized board in 15 days.
