The iBase EC-7100 desktop processor-based embedded computer with NVIDIA MXM Graphics is available now from Backplane Systems Technology

Built around a high-performance NVIDIA GTX 1080 graphics card, the EC-7100 can access 2560 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR5X memory, up to nine TFLOPS capability, and four video outputs.

By merging the computing power of NVIDIA’s MXM GPU accelerator with the 7th generation Intel Core processor, the EC-7100 leverages streaming data for AI-driven applications across the transportation, automation and retail industries.

The standard model is equipped with an Intel Core i7-7700 3.0GHz processor, 16GB DDR4 system memory (expandable to 32GB), and two 128GBN SATA-III SSD storage devices.

Four DisplayPort interfaces and one HDMI make up the graphics ports, while expansion is possible via an M.2 B-key socket, a full-size mPCIe and a SIM card slot.

The platform supports Ubuntu and Windows 10 and a maximum of three Gigabit Ethernet ports, and delivers high-throughput interference for computing vision apps including image recognition, object detection and classification.

The EC-7100 meets the demand for faster data processing and real time analytics with optimal performance and low latency.
