CHATSWORTH, Calif. – Aitech Defense Systems in Chatsworth, Calif., is introducing the upgraded and qualified version of the A178 rugged general-purpose graphics processing (GPGPU) AI embedded supercomputer for intense data processing in extreme environments.
The A178 operates reliably in mobile, remote, military, and autonomous systems, and is for applications like training simulation, situational awareness, artificial intelligence (AI), image and video processing, and moving maps.
One of the smallest of Aitech's small-form-factor (SFF) embedded computing systems, the A178 uses the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier system-on-module that features the Volta GPU with 512 CUDA cores and 64 Tensor cores to reach 32 TOPS INT8 and 11 TFLOPS FP16.
Upgrades help meet the demand for standalone and compact GPGPU-based systems that are rugged and SWaP-C-optimized. The low-power unit offers energy efficiency, while providing all the power necessary for AI-based local processing.
The advanced computation abilities of the system include two dedicated NVIDIA Deep-Learning Accelerator (NVDLA) engines that provide an interface for deep learning applications. The system can accommodate as many as three expansion modules, such as an HD-SDI frame grabber, composite frame grabber, or NVMe solid-state drive.
Four high-definition HD-SDI inputs and eight composite inputs handle several streams of video and data simultaneously at full frame rates. Interfaces include Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet, DisplayPort output handling 4K resolution, USB 3.0 and 2.0, DVI/HDMI output, UART serial, and CANbus.
