How to Install the AI Supercharger

Create AI assemblies 10x Faster 

The Supercharger is a high-performance GPU cluster that accelerates the creation of AI assemblies by a factor of 10x. Our standard build time for a typical AI Assembly is 2hrs which can be reduced to 10 minutes or less by attaching the Rapta Supercharger. The supercharger is ideally suited for engineering workstations for rapid model building and validation before pushing into the production environment. The Supercharger is compatible with existing Rapta installations and can be installed in less than 10 minutes. 

System Includes 

  • Laptop or Desktop GPU server with 120VAC power supply + cord. 
  • CAT5E cable to connect Supercharger to Rapta AI Inspection station. 
  • Server software and AI accelerator package. 

Important Considerations

  • The AI Supercharger MUST be powered on and plugged in before you start either editing or creating a new assembly.
  • The AI Supercharger can be plugged in either when the system is powered on or turned off.
