Aitech’s Powerful, NVIDIA GPU-based U-C5300 Graphics Board Aligns with SOSA Technical Standard

New AI GPGPU board bundles with SOSA aligned U-C8770 SBC, which offers advanced cybersecurity protection
U-C5300 Technical Specifications
  • Powerful NVIDIA GPUs, based on NVIDIA’s Turing architecture (NVIDIA Quadro T1000 and NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000 GPU options)
  • 3U VPX graphics card aligns with The Open Group Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA) Technical Standard
  • High-performance 4-head multiple output graphics
  • Support for Vulkan, CUDA®, OpenCL, OpenGL and DirectX 12
Chatsworth, Calif. April 2021 – Aitech, a leading provider of rugged board and system level solutions for military, aerospace and space applications, has expanded its SOSA aligned product offerings with the powerful U-C5300, a 3U VPX multi-head graphics board featuring NVIDIA GPUs based on the Turing™ architecture.
Updated to align with the SOSA Technical Standard, the U-C5300 can be bundled with Aitech’s U-C8770, a SOSA aligned SBC that brings an advanced, hardware-based cybersecurity infrastructure to rugged embedded systems needing to comply with the Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) outlined by the US Department of Defense (DoD). Aitech’s growing SOSA aligned portfolio is designed to support the DoD ecosystem approach that enables smooth integration from project development to field deployment.
Applications requiring intense video processing and high data computation, such as artificial intelligence (AI) delivery, video analytics, motion detection, image and data processing as well as image classification, location and segmentation, benefit greatly from the board’s processing capabilities. Because it is rugged, it can be employed in systems designed for autonomous avionics, ground and marine environments, including aircrafts, helicopters, tanks and ships, and as well as in fixed ground systems, such as control stations.
Pratish Shah, General Manager USA for Aitech, noted, “Contributing to the SOSA initiative is two-fold. As an industry, we not only need to align our products to the technical requirements put forth, but also bring advanced functionality to military embedded systems. The U-C5300 provides better access to real-time video processing, enabling more intelligent AI-based systems that enhance awareness on the battlefield.”
Design features that enable alignment to the SOSA initiative include support for a SOSA payload profile pinout and a +3.3AUX/+12V power supply.  An additional RS-170 video output as well as conduction-cooling are supported options on the new SOSA aligned U-C5300.
The U-C5300 is available with an NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000 or the NVIDIA Quadro T1000 GPU, depending on the needed performance-per-watt. The use of multi-layered artificial neural networks and the GPUs’ ability to concurrently execute floating point and integer operations give the board a distinct performance advantage over non-GPU accelerated architectures. The NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000 GPU enables processing of up to 5.3 TFLOPS (FP32), while the Quadro T1000 GPU features 2.6 TFLOPS (FP32) of data processing, while offering a lower power consumption.
Based on Aitech’s existing C530 GPU-based SBC, the SOSA aligned U-C5300 operates as a peripheral board with a compatible x86 VPX host SBC, connected to the host SBC over the VPX backplane, via a high speed PCIe Gen3 link of up to 16 lanes. Four independent video graphic video ports each support resolutions of up to 1600×1200 at 60 Hz.
