GPGPU for Embedded Systems

High Performance Embedded Computer () systems are now leaning toward using the specialized parallel computational speed and performance on General Purpose Graphic Processor Units (GPGPUs). Providing that power and performance in a rugged, extended temperature (SFF) can be challenging.

-accelerated computing is the use of a graphics processing unit (GPU) together with a central processing unit () to accelerate applications.

There are so many use cases for technology. Actually, any application that involves many mathematical calculations can be a very good candidate for this technology such as:
- — threat and vehicle detection, missile guidance, obstacle detection, autonomous target recognition, etc.
- Radar
- Sonar
- Video encoding and decoding (NTSC/PAL to H.264)
- Data encryption/decryption
- Database queries
- Motion detection
- Video stabilization
