EIZO Rugged Solutions has launched the Condor GR4-RTX3000, a 3U VPX video capture and GPGPU processing card using MXM technology based on the NVIDIA Turing architecture and the NVIDIA RTX platform. The new card is ideal for a range of UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) applications such as signals intelligence (SIGINT), electronic warfare (EW), and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR).
The Condor GR4-RTX3000 supports four 3G-SDI inputs, four 3G-SDI outputs, and one DisplayPort (4K UHD) output. The card is based around the NVIDIA RTX 3000 (TU106) with 1920 CUDA parallel processing cores, 240 Tensor cores, and 30 RT cores. It provides video capture and display, GPGPU computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), deep learning capabilities, and features dedicated H.265/H.264 encode and decode engines for low-latency GPGPU computing.
The card can be integrated into a High Performance Embedded Computing Systems (HPEC) for the capture of raw video data and other metadata from up to four sensors, for activities such as image enhancement, image analysis, video stitching, remote sensing, and target acquisition and tracking, all with extremely low latency. It also supports SDI VANC KLV metadata insertion and extraction, making it ideal for sensor processing applications involving low latency video capture/display.
The Condor GR4-RTX3000 has 6 GB GDDR6 graphics memory, NVIDIA GPUDirect RDMA for real-time video streaming, and delivers up to 5.3 TFLOPS floating-point performance with CUDA and OpenCLTM support. The Condor GR4-RTX3000 has 50% more compute power than previous generations and offers multiple-precision modes such as FP64, FP32, FP16, INT8, INT4, and INT1.
The card is designed to operate in harsh environments and is tested to MIL-STD-810 standards. It is available with level 4 conduction cooling with thermally efficient heatsink technology and rear I/O.
