3U VPX video/graphics/GPGPU board supports most demanding SIGINT, ISR applications

Abaco Systems announced the GR5 3U VPX rugged video/graphics and GPGPU card, further extending the range of options available and providing customers with the ability to choose exactly the right solution for the specific application. The GR5 is designed to support the video, graphics and GPGPU requirements of the most demanding SIGINT, ISR, situational awareness and radar applications, among others. It is also appropriate for deployment in harsh industrial/commercial environments.

Based on the NVIDIA Pascal Quadro P2000 GPU with 768 cores, 4GBytes of GDDR5 memory and CUDA support, the GR5 offers exceptional graphics and GPGPU capability, and is capable of delivering up to 2.3 TeraFLOPS of floating point performance.

The GR5 supports two DisplayPort 1.2 (4K @ 60Hz) and two single-link DVI-D ports (1,920 x 1,200 @ 60Hz), or four single-link DVI-D outputs. The two single link DVI-D ports ensure DVI pin-compatibility with Abaco’s GRA112D and GRA113D 3U VPX graphics boards, providing customers with a straightforward, cost-effective upgrade to the higher performance and increased longevity of the new board. The GR5 supports PCI Express 3.0 (x16, x8 or x4 lane configurations) when mated with compatible Abaco single board computers.

The new platform is supported by NVIDIA’s software and library stack including NVIDIA CUDA 10, OpenCL 1.2, DirectX 12, OpenGL and H.265 (HEVC)/H.264 hardware encode/decode. Windows and Linux drivers are provided for x86-based platforms. The GR5 is designed to withstand high temperature, shock and vibration environments and meets MIL-STD-810G standards. It is available in both air- and conduction cooled formats.
