3U VPX graphics board delivers 2.3TFLOPS for electronic warfare

Based on Nvidia Pascal technology, the GR5 3U VPX card from Abaco Systems delivers up to 2.3TFLOPS and is a straightforward upgrade for existing customers says the company.

The GR5 3U VPX rugged video/graphics and general purpose graphics process units (GPGPU) card, supports the video, graphics and GPGPU requirements of the most demanding signal integrity (SIGINT), intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), situational awareness and radar applications. It is also appropriate for deployment in harsh industrial and commercial environments.

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.

It is based on the Nvidia Pascal Quadro P2000 GPU with 768 cores, 4Gbytes of GDDR5 memory and CUDA support, to offer graphics and GPGPU capabilities. It is capable of delivering up to 2.3TFLOPS of floating point performance.

The GR5 supports two DisplayPort 1.2 (4K at 60Hz) and two single-link DVI-D ports (1,920 x 1,200 at 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 (SBCs).

It is supported by Nvidia’s software and library stack including 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.

Abaco Systems provides open architecture computing and electronic systems for aerospace, defence and industrial applications. Its modular solutions are based on open standards that are characterised by rugged reliability and minimal SWaP.
