Concurrent Technologies Plc
VPX™ rugged GPGPU/CPU combination
Concurrent Technologies Plc (AIM: CNC), a world leading specialist in the design and manufacture of high-end embedded computer boards for critical applications, is pleased to announce a VPX™ computational solution in conjunction with Eizo Rugged Solutions, Inc.
The BA 9TR/301 is an innovative product which combines a high performance Eizo Rugged Solutions’ General-Purpose Graphics Processing Unit (GPGPU) with a Concurrent Technologies’ Central Processing Unit (CPU) board that utilises an Intel® Core™ i7 acting as a powerful management engine. Both of these processors are housed in a ruggedized, conduction-cooled frame to allow operation within a temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
The BA 9TR/301 delivers very high computational performance along with excellent system connectivity in an optimised Size, Weight, Power and Cost (SWaP-C) solution. This makes it particularly suitable for image analysis, typically on-board reconnaissance aircraft, or geological analysis and can even be used for crypto currency mining.
Glen Fawcett, CEO, Concurrent Technologies Plc, commented: ”By matching our experience in designing best in class Intel processor based boards with Eizo Rugged Solutions’ long standing GPGPU capabilities, we can provide an innovative solution for high computational performance within a very small space envelope. BA 9TR/301 is designed for rugged applications and is available to order today as a conduction-cooled variant.”
Selwyn Henriques, CEO of Eizo Rugged Solutions added: ”We have been a pioneer in providing video, graphics, encoding and recording solutions for nearly three decades. Responsiveness has been the key to our success and this combined product was conceived to meet customer needs for better GPGPU capability with the addition of a CPU management engine all within a single slot.”
