The ZiggyBox provides a compact and highly cost-effective solution for AI at the edge and machine learning applications for industrial and lab applications. It is based around the NVIDIA® Jetson™ TX2/TX2i advanced computing module with NVIDIA Pascal™-family GPU technology. The Jetson module is housed in a rugged miniature enclosure measuring only 2" x 3.5" (5 cm x 9 cm).
ZiggyBox offers easy access to the most popular Jetson I/O features, including Ethernet, USB 3.0 / 2.0 / OTG ports, HDMI display, and 2 RS-232 ports. The built-in carrier board adds a valuable data acquisition circuit with real-world analogue and digital I/O features and software support. An integrated heat sink provides reliable operation at up to 85°C without forced air. With its integrated Linux OS and table-top / DIN rail mounting options, ZiggyBox is ready to be deployed wherever the combination of high-performance computing and ultra-compact size are required.
ZiggyBox contains a full-fledged analogue and digital I/O circuit that provides control and monitoring of real-world events such as sensor inputs, temperature control, keypads/switches, and industrial processes. The 6 analogue inputs feature 0-3.3V input range and programmable 12-bit up to 16-bit resolution, with user-controllable filtering and averaging for noise reduction. The 2 analogue outputs offer 12-bit resolution and 0-3.3V output range. The 13 DIO feature 3.3V logic levels. All features are supported by Diamond's built-in data acquisition driver software, featuring a programming library with application demos plus an interactive GUI-based control program that offers real-time access and control.
