AStuff Nebula

The Nebula begins a new chapter for industrial computers. As the first embedded controller targeting the emerging applications of CUDA computing, autopilot, AI inference and virtual reality, the Nebula integrates all features required for a compact, reliable and powerful GPU-computing platform.

Supporting NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 950* and GTX 1050* GPU, the Nebula possesses 768 CUDA cores to deliver tremendous computing power for arithmetic/graphics operations. Neousys’ patented Cassette technology and an innovative thermal design help to effectively dissipate the heat generated by the GPU, thus making this compact system capable of operating reliably at 60°C with 100% GPU loading.

The Nebula is based on Intel® Skylake platform, and supports 35W/65W 6th-Gen ® Core™ processors and up to 32GB DDR4 memory. It offers rich I/O functions such as GbE, USB 3.0 and COM ports to connect external devices. All these extraordinary features are integrated into a very compact, 240 x 225 x 110 mm footprint. For fast-growing GPU-computing applications, the Nebula presents the first industrial-grade, compact and rugged platform incorporating CPU and GPU to offer performance far beyond traditional industrial computers.
