What’s New? The end of Windows 7, spo-comm at the Nürnberg Digital Festival & Nvidias Development Kit

Our news for May have plenty to offer: We say goodbye to Windows 7, but Hello to the Nürnberg Digital Festival and we discover a new Nvidia beginner’s platform.

Windows 7 – The end has come

We already mentioned in our news in June last year, that spo-comm can only support Windows 10 for new systems.

Now the time for all the other Mini-PCs has come, too. The Windows 7 SB versions are no longer available. The spo-comm Mini-PCs can from now on only be equipped with Windows 10 (IoT) or – after consultation – with Windows 7 Embedded.

AI AI, Captain: spo-comm at the Nürnberg Digital Festival

At the Nürnberg Digital Festival we will be organizing an event all about the topic Artificial Intelligence. Here the participants can experience and learn what Nvidias programming technique CUDA has to do with AI and Deep Learning. More information about our guest speakers, the application examples of our customers and the event in general, we have put together in another blog article.

CUDA & 4K: Nvidias Jetson Nano Development Kit

As the name suggests, Nvidia brought a new board for developers to market. It is called Jetson Nano and has four ARM processing cores with 1.43 GHz as its centerpiece. These are combined with a 4GB high LPDDR4 RAM. The Developer Kit only comes up with 5 Watt power consumption. The Jetson Nano also is equipped with 128 CUDA cores with which 4K@60 Hz videos can be encoded in the H.264 standard and decoded in the H.265 standard.

The Jetson Nano has – despite its small dimensions of only 100 x 80 x 29 mm – next to a passive cooling system also many different connectors. These include five USB ports, one of them Micro-USB, one HDMI and one DisplayPort for connecting monitors, as well as a Gigabit LAN port. With the CSI-2 a camera can be connected, too, and a microSD card slot is also available.

Find more information about the Jetson Nano here and in this video.
