Rugged XMC from Abaco ideal for ISR and autonomy

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. Abaco Systems announced a new rugged XMC graphics and video capture board. The NVP2102 takes advantage of the high performance of the NVIDIA Pascal P2000 GPU with its 768 cores and 4 GBytes of GDDR5 memory to deliver 2.3 TeraFLOPS of performance with support for both CUDA and OpenCL. According to the company, it is the first Abaco video/graphics XMC product to offer high performance input and output.

The NVP2102 provides a rugged choice for forms of graphics/video processing input/output. Typical applications include situational awareness, signals intelligence, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaisance (ISR), and radar, while the Pascal GPU's high degree of parallelism also makes it a fit for GPGPU applications including machine learning and autonomy.

The NVP2102 is designed for graphics and video generation, input and output, supporting four 3G-SDI inputs, capable of 1080p60; two 3G-SDI outputs, also capable of 1080p60; two DisplayPort 1.4 ports capable of 4K resolution @ 60Hz; and VGA. Support for H.265 (HEVC)/H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC) encode/decode is provided.

For electronic warfare applications in which minimal latency is essential, the NVP2012 provides a solution through its direct interface to the host computer (as opposed to card-to-card connectivity) and provides direct video capture direct to GPU memory.
