Fremont, California — September 20, 2022 — Portwell Inc. (https://www.portwell.com) announced today it is developing an NVIDIA IGX-based hardware solution aimed at empowering AI for industrial-grade edge applications. According to Jack Lam, American Portwell Technology’s senior product marketing director, Portwell has adopted the NVIDIA IGX platform to provide streamlined design expertise and shorten development time for ever-changing AI-driven industrial-grade solutions.
Designed for industrial and medical certifications, the NVIDIA IGX platform expands upon traditional commercial offerings with long-term support, network security, as well as built-in functional safety for a broad spectrum of autonomous applications.
Portwell plans to design modular computer hardware powered by the NVIDIA IGX Orin, the world’s most powerful, compact and energy-efficient AI supercomputer for autonomous industrial machines and medical devices. Portwell’s new hardware solution will include support for 10GbE SFP+, NVIDIA RTX™ GPUs, M.2 expansions for WiFi and NVMe storage, high-quality display I/O and the capability of remote control and management. In addition to meeting NVIDIA's hardware requirements and specifications, IGX Orin includes a built-in safety microcontroller unit that actively checks and verifies the integrity of the hardware and software to ensure that they haven’t been compromised. The IGX platform also includes an IGX software stack. These capabilities allow organizations to add functional safety into industrial environments where very specific requirements must be met to ensure productivity, security and compliance.
“In essence, this new product platform will provide developers with an AI computer and software development framework for building industrial-grade edge AI solutions that feature advanced graphics, high performance, built-in proactive safety and end-to-end security,” Lam states. “It also benefits from hardware and software support from NVIDIA to ensure product longevity.”
“And as usual, customers can take advantage of the most up-to-date technology, features and design capacities, and they also gain peace of mind from the long product lifespan support on their projects in AI, simulation, secure edge computing platforms and IoT and sensor data analytics,” Lam adds. “Organizations worldwide are poised to enter a new era of intelligent, autonomous machines.”
