2024 NVIDIA GTC Best In Show Winners: Computer Boards, Systems, Components & Peripherals

The Embedded Computing Design editorial staff is pleased to present this year’s 2024 NVIDIA GTC Best-in-Show winners in the Computer Boards, Systems, Components & Peripherals category:

Connect Tech: Rogue-RX Carrier Board


The Rogue-RX is engineered to endure shock, vibration, and temperature variations, meeting the demands of industrial, agriculture, public sector, and robotics deployments.

The Rogue-RX Carrier is designed for the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin and Jetson AGX Orin Industrial module. The rugged carrier board features a rugged design with positive locking high-speed connectors, including high-speed peripherals such as 10GBASE-T, USB 3.2 Gen2, and HDMI.

The inclusion of a positive locking discrete wire/pin header for UART, I2C, SPI, CAN, and GPIO functionalities further enhances the Rogue-RX’s suitability for rugged applications, like industrial automation, and in outdoor settings exposed to unpredictable weather conditions. The Rogue-RX’s positive locking connectors also enable camera expansion to a variety of video inputs.

Pairing with a Connect Tech camera board allows direct access to the Jetson AGX Orin’s 16-lane MIPI CSI-2 connection to inputs including 3G-SDI/HD-SDI, GMSL2, FPD-Link III, HDMI Input, and direct MIPI CSI-2. The high-speed camera interface ensures a reliable stream of information in vision-reliant applications.


Innodisk Corporation: Low-Light Camera Module: EV2U-SGR1

The EV2U-SGR1 supports development with NVIDIA DeepStream technology, and deep learning models to achieve efficient results in real-time identification.
