Rugged AI supercomputer now offers quicker processing of critical functions

09-10-2020 | Aitech | Subs & Systems

Aitech Systems has launched an upgraded, qualified version of its high performance, compact A178. Created for intense data processing in harsh environments, the rugged GPGPU AI supercomputer reliably functions in the extreme conditions found throughout mobile, remote, defence and autonomous platforms. The system is excellent for applications including training simulation, AI computing, situational awareness, image and video processing, moving maps and much more.

Dan Mor, GPGPU product line manager for Aitech, said: “High-speed interfaces that can quickly capture and process data, then deliver it to the next decision point, are critical to avoid bottlenecks typical of the high processing demands in today’s rugged AI applications. The new A178 includes not only the needed interfaces, like 10GbE and USB 3 but up to 32GB of RAM for even better performance in these high throughput scenarios.”

Already one of the smallest of the company's extensive AI SFF systems, the new device packs even more performance into a compact, rugged form factor. It uses the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier SoM that features the Volta GPU with 512 CUDA cores and 64 Tensor cores to reach 32 TOPS INT8 and 11 TFLOPS FP16.
