MAY 19, 2017 — At GTC (the GPU Technology Conference: San Jose Convention Center) Abaco Systems announced the GVC1000 graphics and vision system. Based on the recently-released NVIDIA Jetson TX2 supercomputer on a module, the GVC1000 delivers a combination of 1+ TeraFLOPS of performance in graphics/video applications, connectivity, and a graphics software development environment.
A complete, ready-to-run system, the GVC1000 is intended to allow customers to eliminate the challenges of integration and to focus immediately on application development.
The GVC1000 features a unique range of connectivity options that reflect the operational realities of the applications for which it is designed. It provides two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports for receiving multiple camera inputs; two MilCAN/CAN ports to receive vehicle data; and extended USB capability for maximum connection flexibility. It also features internal storage of up to 32 GBytes of MLC and 128 GBytes of SLC SSD to enable it to retain significant amounts of fast access mission- and moving map data.
Abaco’s ImageFlex image processing and visualization toolkit provides application development for the GVC1000. It features a C API that provides an framework that can reduce development time required to develop image processing and graphics applications with no impact on application performance. ImageFlex enables interoperability with CUDAand other libraries such as VisionWorks, a software development package for computer vision (CV) and image processing.
The GVC1000 is designed for a range of military and commercial applications - particularly vision computing, embedded training, 360° situational awareness and advanced digital mapping, as well as data-intensive intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance applications such as wide area persistent surveillance, hyperspectral sensor fusion, IED detection, synthetic aperture radar processing and more.
With dimensions of approximately 6 inches x 5 inches x 3 inches, and weighing around 5.5 pounds, the GVC1000 is designed to be deployed in applications such as the confined spaces typical of a vehicle.
To enable application development and deployment, the GVC1000 is code-compatible with desktop environments such as CUDA and MATLAB, allowing porting of applications and algorithms onto the deployable platform.
