Concurrent Technologies, a world-leading specialist in the design and manufacture of high-end embedded computer boards for critical applications, has entered into a partnership agreement to offer a range of General Purpose Graphical Processing Units (GPGPU), AI-enabled, capture and video processing boards from EIZO Rugged Solutions.
EIZO provides a wide range of rugged COTS XMC and VPX form factor graphics and video solutions for both compute and I/O intensive systems. These GPGPU modules can provide graphical input/output channels and are widely utilized to accelerate processing tasks in electronic warfare (EW), intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), 360° situational awareness, and artificial intelligence applications.
Concurrent Technologies’ plug-in processor cards have an onboard expansion mezzanine site (XMC) or PCI Express lanes to adjacent cards (or both) to allow high bandwidth connections to these GPGPU cards from EIZO. EIZO’s line of Condor video graphics and GPGPU solutions are based on the popular NVIDIA® GPU chipsets which are widely deployed in high-definition video and image analysis while utilizing the adjacent processor card to provide up to a 100G Ethernet for system-level connectivity. In addition, Concurrent Technologies’ plug-in processor cards and EIZO Rugged Solution’s OpenVPX modules integrate to make a complete CPU + GPU solution in SOSA™ aligned systems
Brent Salgat, President of Concurrent Technologies, commented: “We have a great relationship with the EIZO Rugged team, having successfully worked together on many high-profile programs in the USA and worldwide. This moves our relationship up a level, providing Concurrent Technologies with additional payloads that we can utilize within our evolving systems portfolio.”
Selwyn Henriques, President, and CEO of EIZO Rugged commented: “Our video, capture, encoding, and GPGPU product offerings are complementary with Concurrent Technologies’ processor plug-in cards. Through this partnership, customers will receive complete, tested solutions to accelerate system designs and win programs.”
