HUNTSVILLE, Ala.— Abaco Systems of Huntsville, Ala. recently announced the GVC1001 ultra-high performance graphics, vision and AI evaluation platform. It is based on the recently-released NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier module that features an NVIDIA Volta GPU with 512 Tensor Cores and an 8-core ARM CPU. The GVC1001 is capable of up to 5.7 TeraFLOPS of performance.
The GVC1001 is suited for deployment on highly constrained platforms such as autonomous vehicles. Typical applications include embedded training, 360-degree situational awareness, EO/IR processing, non-cert Degraded Visual Environment (DVE), display processing, moving map and many more.
These types of compute-, data- and image-intensive applications are now requiring AI, deep learning techniques and inferencing engines - which the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier module provides. This new level of processing is required for advanced digital maps, image recognition, image segmentation, object localization, image fusion, image stabilization, object tracking and image correction within the target applications.
256 GBytes of NVMe SSD bulk storage is provided as standard to store mission- and moving map data.
To enable the rapid development of image processing and manipulation application development, the GVC1001 is supported by Abaco’s AXIS ImageFlex image processing and visualization toolkit, which is designed to allow engineers to harness the full potential of NVIDIA GPUs.
ImageFlex greatly simplifies application creation by delivering a powerful set of high-level application programming interfaces (APIs) that exploit the full capabilities of the underlying GPUs while abstracting the complex details associated with each implementation. Applications built using the ImageFlex framework are easier to develop, test, debug and maintain, while speeding time to deployment by up to five times.
