Aitech Defense Systems has announced the fanless, rugged GPGPU A176 Cyclone system capable of 1 Tflops parallel processing. The system is based on the NVIDIA Maxwell architecture which includes two processors. One is the graphic processor unit (GPU subsystem) with 256 CUDA cores and 4 Gbytes of LPDDR4 RAM and the Quad-core ARM Cortex A57 CPU operates at 1.9 GHz per core (maximum). Power requirement is 17W with 8-10W typical. Video encoding is 4K at 60 Hz with decoding of 4K at 30 Hz. System storage is 16 Gbytes of eMMC and SATA SSD with quick erase/secure erase. Available I/O includes gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0, UART Serial and discrete. Multiple video outputs (DVI/HDMI, composite, SDI, STANAG) and video Inputs (composite, DVI/HDMI, SDI, Camera Link) are available. The overall system performance comes to 60 Gflop per watt.

The compact A176 measures 20 cubic inches (4.3- x 4.3- x 1.18inches) and weighs less than 2.2 lbs. Operating temperature ranges from -40 to +70 degrees C. The system complies with VITA 47 levels V2 (vibration), OS1 (shock), MIL-STD-810G (rain, dust, salt fog) and EMI/RFI levels to MIL-STD-461. With capability of embedded deep learning, computer vision, graphics and GPU computing in harsh environments, the system is designed for applications in image capture, persistent video surveillance intelligent video analytics/ processing, signal processing, C4ISR, UAS and UGVs.
