Abaco Announces Ultra-high Performance Graphics, Vision and AI Evaluation Platform Featuring NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier Module

  • Delivers up to 5.7 TeraFLOPS for maximum performance in advanced applications
  • Minimal SWaP enables deployment in constrained environments
  • Wide range of I/O provides maximum flexibility

Abaco Systems today announced the GVC1001 ultra-high performance graphics, vision and AI evaluation platform. It is based on the recently-released NVIDIA® Jetson™ AGX Xavier™ module that features an NVIDIA Volta GPU with 512 Tensor Cores  and an 8-core ARM® CPU.  The GVC1001 is capable of up to 5.7 TeraFLOPS of performance.

The GVC1001 is ideal for deployment on highly constrained platforms such as autonomous vehicles. Typical applications include embedded training, 360° situational awareness, EO/IR processing, non-cert Degraded Visual Environment (DVE), display processing, moving map and many more.

These types of compute-, data- and image-intensive applications are now requiring AI, deep learning techniques and inferencing engines – which the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier module delivers. This new level of processing is required for advanced digital maps, image recognition, image segmentation, object localization, image fusion, image stabilization, object tracking and image correction within the target applications.

The GVC1001 is particularly suitable for ground vehicles as it provides two CANBus ports for vehicle data. It is capable of very high bandwidth with video ingest from multiple cameras over the two 10GbE ports. Additionally, for data-intensive applications, the 512-core CUDA®-capable Volta GPU opens up a broad range of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) applications. These include wide area persistent surveillance, hyperspectral sensor fusion, IED detection, and synthetic aperture radar processing.

“As an NVIDIA Jetson Preferred Partner in the military/aerospace segment, we have early access to NVIDIA’s design and support resources, meaning we can innovate earlier, and be on the leading edge of NVIDIA’s product roadmap – to the benefit of our customers,” said Peter Thompson, Vice President, Product Management, Abaco Systems. “The GVC1001 delivers a huge amount of customer- and application researched value, and is an off-the-shelf solution that can reduce cost, risk and time to market.”
