Board is based on the NVIDIA Quadro Pascal (GP107) P2000 graphics processing unit (GPU) architecture and provides 2.3 TeraFLOPS of peak performance.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Abaco Systems in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing the rugged high-bandwidth NVP2102A XMC graphics and general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPGPU) embedded computing card for applications that require high-end graphics or CUDA support for general-purpose processing, and raw video capture and display.

Based on the NVIDIA Quadro Pascal (GP107) P2000 graphics processing unit (GPU) architecture and providing as much as 2.3 TeraFLOPS of peak performance, the board has four 3G-SDI inputs, provides two NTSC/PAL video inputs, and supports two audio inputs.

Video output is via two 3G-SDI and two DVI or DisplayPort interfaces. The board supports direct video capture to GPU memory to reduce latency and minimize glass-to-glass time.

The card automatically detects the input resolution of incoming video, and transfers raw video frames to GPU or host memory. It also can encode the captured data using the GPU-native H.265 (HEVC) or H.264 encoders in GPU memory. Windows or Linux drivers and API are available for x86 systems.

The NVP2102A supports Abaco's AXIS ImageFlex -- an image processing and visualization toolkit that helps users develop high-performance image processing, visualization and autonomy applications for size-, weight-, and power-constrained uses.

The NVP2102A for general-purpose processing comes in conduction- or air-cooled variants with rear XMC I/O on Pn6. The rear XMC pin-out is compatible with VPX systems that follow VITA 46.9 x12d+x8d+24s. 3U VPX and PCI Express form factors are supported with carrier boards.
