6U OpenVPX blade server for artificial intelligence (AI) and sensor fusion introduced by Mercury
ANDOVER, Mass. – Mercury Systems Inc. in Andover, Mass., is introducing the EnsembleSeries HDS6605 powerful general-purpose 6U OpenVPX embedded computing blade server with hardware-enabled support for artificial intelligence (AI) applications.
Powered by second-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, the HDS6605 blade server is rugged defense applications and upgrades that require the utmost in processing capability.
These rugged servers have the same cooling, packaging, and 100 gigabits per second in-system switch fabric interconnect technologies found in earlier generations of Mercury blades based on Intel Xeon processors. These open systems technologies have a technology readiness level of nine (TRL-9).
The HDS6605 blade server is optimized for sensor fusion, complex C4I, and deep-learning applications. Second-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors have Intel Deep Learning Boost, which extends Intel Advanced Vector Extensions-512 (Intel AVX-512) to accelerate inference applications like speech recognition, image recognition, language translation, and object detection.
Its set of Vector Neural Network Instructions (VNNI) embedded accelerators speed up dense computations characteristic of convolutional neural networks and deep neural networks, delivering as much as a 14x improvement in inference performance compared to the first-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor.
Along with increased scalability via ultrapath interconnect (UPI) , each 6U OpenVPX blade provides as many as 22 cores from one 1.9 GHz device, delivering 2.6 teraFLOPS of general-purpose processing power.
The BuiltSECURE system security engineering IP enables turnkey or personalized trusted computing security solutions that help safeguard against present and emerging cyber threats.
Extensible and composable, Mercury's architectures are built to evolve for future-proofing to maintain systemwide integrity while reducing overall cost and program risk. Additionally, second-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors are embedded with Intel's next generation of security has and resolve known hardware vulnerabilities.
EnsembleSeries HDS6605 server blades offer advanced packaging, cooling, and interconnects to protect the blades from harsh environments.
