Abaco Systems has released the GVC1001 ultra-high performance vision, graphics and AI evaluation platform. It is based on the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier module which was recently released. The platform features an NVIDIA Volta GPU with 512 Tensor Cores and an eight-core ARM CPU. The GVC1001 can provide 5.7TeraFLOPS of performance.
The device is excellent for deployment on highly constrained platforms such as autonomous vehicles. Typical applications comprise embedded training, 360-degree situational awareness, EO/IR processing, non-cert DVE, display processing, moving map and many more.
The device is especially ideal for ground vehicles as it offers two CANBus ports for vehicle data. It is able to provide very high bandwidth with video ingest from multiple cameras over the two 10GbE ports. Also, for data-intensive applications, the 512-core CUDA-capable Volta GPU unlocks a wide variety of ISR applications. These comprise wide area persistent surveillance, hyperspectral sensor fusion, IED detection, and synthetic aperture radar processing.
“As an NVIDIA Jetson Preferred Partner in the military/aerospace segment, we have early access to NVIDIA’s design and support resources, meaning we can innovate earlier, and be on the leading edge of NVIDIA’s product roadmap – to the benefit of our customers,” said Peter Thompson, vice president, Product Management, Abaco Systems. “The GVC1001 delivers a huge amount of customer- and application researched value, and is an off-the-shelf solution that can reduce cost, risk and time to market.”
