HUNTSVILLE, Ala.— Abaco Systems recently announced its 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 peak performance with support for both CUDA and OpenCL. It is the first Abaco video/graphics XMC product to offer high performance input and output.
Developed for deployment in the harsh and cramped conditions typical of battlefield platforms, the NVP2102 provides a choice for all forms of graphics/video processing input/output. Typical applications include situational awareness, signals intelligence, 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 at 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 an essential requirement, the NVP2012 provides a solution not only by virtue of its direct interface to the host computer (as opposed to card-to-card connectivity) but also provides direct video capture direct to GPU memory – again, minimizing latency.
The board meets the MIL-STD-810G standard: in its conduction cooled form, it is specified to operate at temperatures of -40°C to +85°C and in its air cooled form it is specified to operate at temperatures of -40°C to +70°C.
