CHARM 100NX
Video Processing Board 100mm x 100mm x 20mm (3.94” x 3.94” x 0.8”)

The Vision4ce CHARM-100NX is a standalone video processing board for embedded video and image processing applications, which is designed to host the video capture and image processing software. The software available includes FrameWorkx video capture and the field proven DART video tracking software. The CHARM-100NX is based on a NVIDIA Xavier embedded processor which incorporates a multicore ARM processor and powerful GPU. Video interfaces are provided for 6G, 3G, HD and SD video in digital formats.

CHARM-100NX

The CHARM-100NX uses an FPGA for high speed, low latency video interfacing and processing combined with the power of the Xavier NX embedded processing which incorporates a Hexa core ARM CPU, 384 CUDA core + 48 Tensor core NVIDIA GPU and a video accelerator for video encode/decode. The Xavier NX provides more than 3 times the AI processing performance of the earlier Jetson TX2 processor and processes two concurrent streams of standard definition or high definition video, selected from the multiple video inputs. Other image processing applications available include:

Architecture

The CHARM-100NX uses a FPGA for high speed, low latency video interfacing and processing combined with the power of the Xavier NX embedded processing which includes the following resources:
• Hexa core ARM CPU
• 384 CUDA core + 48 Tensor core GPU
• Video accelerator for video encode/decode The Xavier NX provides more than 3 times the AI processing performance of the earlier Jetson TX2 processor and processes two concurrent streams of standard definition or high definition video, selected from the multiple video inputs. The output video is genlocked to the input video and is comprised of low latency video from the selected input combined with processed video and graphics from the Xavier.

Applications

• Security and surveillance
• UAV & UGV
• Manned vehicles

Enclosure

A rugged enclosure is available for the CHARM-100NX. The enclosure includes an input power supply which allows the CHARM-100NX to be powered directly from vehicle and aircraft power sources. Customized connector configurations are also available for specific applications.
