GTC Europe, Amsterdam, September 28, 2016 – Connect Tech is pleased to announce the release of its newest VPX product – the GraphiteVPX/CPU-TX1. The product is a VITA 65 compliant 3U VPX single board computer that brings the NVIDIA® Jetson™ TX1 embedded computing platform to the VPX form factor.
The GraphiteVPX/CPU-TX1 is the latest release in a range of NVIDIA Jetson TX1 solutions that Connect Tech has created in the past year, joining ranks with the Astro, Elroy, and Orbitty Carrier Boards, and the Rosie Embedded System.
Delivering over a TeraFLOP of performance, the powerful GraphiteVPX/CPU-TX1 has multiple USB 3.0 ports, multiple GbE channels, and 6 CSI camera interfaces to round out this 3U VPX solution. The onboard PCIe Gen 3.0 switch supports two x4 interfaces, providing two additional downstream ports on the backplane.
“Considering the performance per watt benefits of the NVIDIA Jetson TX1 along with our growing footprint in the 3U VPX market place, the addition of our GraphiteVPX/CPU-TX1 was a natural progression,” states Michele Kasza, VP sales and marketing.
NVIDIA Jetson TX1 is a supercomputer on a module that’s the size of a credit card. It features the new NVIDIA Maxwell™ architecture, 256 NVIDIA CUDA® cores, 64-bit CPUs, and unmatched power efficiency. Plus, it includes the latest technology for deep learning, computer vision, GPU computing, and graphics, making it ideal for embedded visual computing.
The extended temperature range of the product is -40°C to +70°C (-40°F to +158°F) and it is conduction cooled. To aid in development, use Connect Tech’s RTG004 GraphiteVPX/CPU-TX1 RTM.
See the GraphiteVPX/CPU-TX1 at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference (GTC) Europe in Amsterdam from September 28 to September 29, 2016 at Booth S1.
