Edge Series Overview¶
The Edge Series Artificial Intelligence Radio Transceiver (AIR-T) product line consists of a high- performance software defined radios (SDR) seamlessly integrated with state-of-the-art processing and deep learning inference hardware. The Edge Series has been specifically designed to operate as an edge-compute device in a harsh environment. Within the ruggedized enclosure, the Edge Series SDR contains an expanded receiver down to VHF, a GNSS disciplined oscillator for timing, expanded data storage (480 GB), and an industrial grade AIR-T.

|AIR-T Model||GPU||FPGA||Part Number |
|AIR8201||NVIDIA Jetson TX2i||Xilinx Artix7 200T||AIR8201-B|
More information may be found on the AIR-T Product Flyer.
Edge Series Enclosure¶
The AIR-T Edge Series includes a rugged aluminum conduction cooled enclosure. The enclosure is designed to be deployed on a vehicle, tower, or other outdoor environment with an IP56 rating1. All RF, data, and connectivity ports are brought out to the front panel where the user may pass cables through the water-tight front membrane to ensure protection against harsh weather.
