Graphic output boards target defence, aerospace and industrial
Two new graphic output boards join Abaco Systems line-up, the NPN244, which is VITA 65 aligned, and the NPN244S which is aligned to the SOSA technical standard. Both graphics output boards are rugged 6U VPX high-performance computers and Abaco says that the choice of alignments aims to help improve flexibility and lower risk.
The NPN244 and the NPN244S are based on NVIDIA Turing architecture and are available on either the NVIDIA RTX5000 or the NVIDIA RTX3000 platform. These graphics output boards use NVIDIA GPUDirect RDMA to minimise latency for real-time video and data streaming, while more power sensitive applications can make use of NVIDIA’s RTX3000. Abaco says this allows the end-user to do more with less, or to just do more, with up to 18.98 TFLOPs peak performance.
Both boards are aimed at data-intensive digital signal processing military and civil applications – including ISR, high-performance airborne radar, synthetic aperture radar and ground moving target indicators. They are supported by Abaco’s AXIS ImageFlex which enables rapid development of high-performance image processing, visualisation and autonomy applications aimed at size, weight and power sensitive platforms.
The NPN244S is one of more than 20 products the company has designed to align to the SOSA standard and their wider 6U portfolio which also includes the IPN254, SBC6511 and SWE550S.
“Abaco’s innovative approach allowing for an end-user to choose the profile that best meets their needs ensures we can deliver a product that enables our customers to succeed in the long run,” said Pete Thompson, vice-president of product management for Abaco Systems.
“Our commitment to continually delivering the latest technology and products while expanding our portfolio maintains our position as industry leaders in the aerospace, defence and industrial market sectors.”
Abaco Systems is a subsidiary of Ametek, a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with 2020 sales of more than $4.5 billion.
