Aitech Defense Systems C535 Typhoon rugged GPGPU subsystem computer

Tuesday, 09 May, 2017 | Supplied by: APC Technology



The Aitech Defense Systems C535 Typhoon rugged GPGPU subsystem computer is based on Jetson TX1 SoM, which combines a powerful ARM Quad-Core CPU with the advanced NVIDIA Maxwell GPU. It provides good processing power in a single 3U VPX slot. The board has 60 GFLOPS/W performance.

Technical specifications include 1 TFLOP/60 GFLOP/W processing in a 3U VPX slot; NVIDIA Jetson TX1 SoM ARM Quad-Core CPU and NVIDIA Maxwell 256 CUDA cores GPU; robust I/O for diverse applications; and low power, optimum SWaP performance.

The product draws a maximum of only 17 W, with 8–10 typical. This low power consumption, along with the board’s small footprint, helps redefine SWaP (size, weight and power) in embedded computing systems, especially those designed for mobile and harsh applications.

Its enhanced video and signal processing capabilities make it suitable for the next generation of autonomous vehicles, avionics and flight systems, surveillance and targeting systems, and EW systems. Onboard resources include dynamic voltage and frequency scaling as well as a temperature sensor and time-elapsed recorder.

The board’s robust I/O options include dual Gigabit Ethernet, UART and USB serial ports, dual DVI/HDMI video outputs, composite and SDI video inputs, camera link video input, USB, discretes and a stereo HD audio output.

It has an onboard FPGA to handle added video input and output formats such as composite, STANAG, camera link, SDI, more DVI/HDMI ports and a frame grabber.

It uses Maxwell architecture GPU with 256 CUDA cores, which deliver over 1 TFLOP of signal and video processor performance.  An H.264/H.265 encoder is also included.

Memory capabilities include a 32 GB miniSATA SSD with SLC Flash. Security features include quick erase and secure erase. The board also features 4 GB of LPDDR4 RAM in dual channels operating at 3200 MT/s and 16 GB of eMMC 5.1 as the boot source.

Additional security features include HW acceleration for AES 128/192/256 encryption and decryption as well as for AES CMAC, SHA-1 and SHA-256 algorithms. An HW random number generator and 2048-bit RSA HW function further secure the board’s processing data.
