GE introduced their GRA112 3U VPX Graphics Board. The GE GRA112 features a 384-core NVIDIA Kepler architecture-based EXK107 GPU, PCI Express Gen 3 interconnect, and 2 GBytes of GDDR5 memory. The graphics board is ideal for both demanding graphical applications and GPGPU (general purpose computing on a graphics processing unit) applications like ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance), radar and sonar.
GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the 6U OpenVPX CUDA Starter Kit. The GE 6U CUDA Starter Kit is designed for GPGPU (general purpose computing on a graphics processing unit) technology for rugged, size/weight-constrained, deployed mission computing applications such as radar, sonar, image processing, signals intelligence and ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance). The kit is a complete, integrated, pre-tested hardware and software development environment. A 3U OpenVPX CUDA Starter Kit is also available.
GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the 6U OpenVPX NPN240 multi-processor for embedded systems. The rugged GPGPU (general purpose computing on a graphics processing unit) features two NVIDIA CUDA-capable GT240 96-core GPUs. Depending on the application, up to 750 GFLOPS peak per card slot is possible. Multiple NPN240s can be linked to single or multiple hosts to create multi-node CUDA GPU clusters capable of thousands of GFLOPS. Supported software includes Linux, Windows, Microsoft DirectX, OpenCL, OpenGL, MATLAB, PureVideo and PhysX.
GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the IPN250 Rugged 6U OpenVPX Single Board Computer (SBC). The IPN250 SBC features an integrated GPGPU (general purpose computing on a graphics processing unit) capability. With the GE IPN250, system integrators can deploy a single COTS module where previously multiple disparate modules would have been required. It is ideal for front end processing of sensor-acquired data, digital signal processing, backend processing, and graphics/video processing.
GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms rolled out the OpenVPX-compatible GRA111 high performance graphics board. The GRA111 features NVIDIA’s new GT 240 GPU (graphics processing unit). It is the first rugged implementation of a CUDA-capable GPU. The GRA111 is the first member of GE Fanuc’s CUDA-enabled products family for military and aerospace embedded computing. The GRA111 board brings supercomputing capability to applications and environments that require leading edge processing such as radar, signals intelligence, and video surveillance and interpretation.
S3 Graphics launched the Chrome 5400E embedded graphics processor. The S3 Graphics 5400E GPU features a native OpenCL 1.0 engine. OpenCL is an open, cross-platform standard used to harness the power of a GPUs internal shaders to accelerate parallel computations in applications ranging from scientific, medical, and other high performance computing (HPC) markets. Driver support of Microsoft operating systems includes Windows 7 Aero, Vista Aero, XP, and CE. Linux kernel 2.6.xx with support for RedHat, SuSE, Ubuntu, Fedora Core, Debian, and other Linux distributions are supported by the 5400E drivers.
