GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the SBC622 rugged 6U OpenVPX-compliant single board computer. The SBC622 features the Intel Core i7 Processor and Mobile Intel QM57 Express Chipset. It is available in five rugged air- and conduction-cooled build levels. The SBC622 is fully supported by Deployed Test Software (BIT and BCS). It supports while VxWorks, Windows and Linux operating systems.
The Ensemble 6000 Series 6U OpenVPX GSC6200 GPU Processing Module, from Mercury Computer Systems, is ideal for embedded rugged defense surveillance platform, performing processing, exploitation, and dissemination (PED). The GSC6200 module is a dual-site MxM carrier module that can be populated with either one or two MxM modules. The MxMs on the GSC6200 can support either ATI or nVIDIA GPUs. Each MxM module supports two single-link DVI interfaces from each MxM site to the front panel and the backplane for carrying uncompressed digital video data.
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.
Concurrent Technologies introduced the SY VPX/3×3 low-cost, off the shelf, 3U OpenVPX Development Systems. The SY VPX/3×3 consists of the SY VPX/303 and SY VPX/313. Each Development System is a free-standing 3U VPX chassis with a backplane supporting a controller slot and two peripheral slots. The SY VPX/3×3 systems come preconfigured with either an Intel Atom or an Intel Core 2 Duo processor board, each with a x4 PCI Express fabric to the two peripheral slots. Both systems include a 3U VPX Mass Storage module, which leaves the third VPX slot available for an additional board.
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.
Concurrent Technologies unveiled the TR A40/30xRC ultra low power 3U VPX-REDI single board computer (SBC). The TR A40/30xRC is designed to comply with the OpenVPX VITA 65 standard. The TR A40/30xRC VPXREDI SBC supports Linux, Windows XP, Windows XP Embedded, QNX, and VxWorks. The OpenVPX standard defines the VPX Systems Specification, an architecture that manages and constrains module and backplane designs. The VPX Systems Specification includes the definition of pin-outs and sets interoperability points within VPX, while maintaining full compliance with the existing VPX specification.
