Quantum3D Sentiris 5140 Graphics Accelerator XMC Card

Quantum3D, Inc. recently introduced the Sentiris 5140 XMC mezzanine card. The Sentiris 5140 is the newest member of the Sentiris family of COTS graphics modules, which is designed for use in general computing applications as well as air, ground, and maritime vehicles. The new 5140 is supported on x86 architectures running Windows XP Pro, Windows XP Embedded, and Linux operating systems. Sentiris 5140 pricing starts at $4,085 USD.

Built using AMD’s latest Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), the ATI Radeon HD 3650, the Sentiris 5140 delivers image quality and performance that are unparalleled in the industry. This is critical for enabling users to understand their environment, for target recognition and for “man-in-the-loop” training scenarios. The 5140 leverages Quantum3D’s power-management technologies to reduce power consumption and heat dissipation. In addition, the new Sentiris model meets the shock, vibration, temperature and other requirements of MIL-STD-810F, making it well suited for the harsh and demanding environmental conditions posed by military and civilian field-computing implementations.

The Sentiris 5140 also ushers in a new era of General-Purpose Computing on Graphics Processing Units (GPGPU), which enables computation in addition to visualization. GPGPU is revolutionary because it provides greater processing power per watt compared to traditional processors.
