3U VPX GPU Board with AMD Radeon E9171 GPU/GPGPU, Xilinx UltraScale FPGA and FMC Slot

The 3U VPX GPU board with AMD Radeon™ E9171 GPGPU, Xilinx UltraScale FPGA and a FMC slot is not only a GPU board but also a computing card (GPGPU) and frame grabber. Utilizing the AMD Radeon™ E9171 GPGPU with 1.2 TFLOPS of computing power and Microsoft® DirectX® 12 support, the IC-GRA-VPX3a delivers high performance with a Thermal Design Power (TDP) of less than 40 watts.

In addition, the dedicated Unified Video Decoder (UVD) and 4K HEVC/H.265 video encoding acceleration enables high definition decoding of H.264, VC-1, MPEG4, MPEG2 and MVC compressed video streams.

The IC-GRA-VPX3a provides up to five video outputs (2 direct DisplayPort™ 1.4 interfaces and 3 customizable interfaces thanks to the FPGA and mezzanine module). The support of OpenGL™4.5 and OpenCL™2.0, as an open standard programming software, makes this 3U VPX module the ideal solution for demanding graphics and video applications in low power environments.

The combination of the onboard Xilinx UltraScale FPGA, GPU and capture module makes the IC-GRA-VPX3a extremely scalable to provide multiple solutions in terms of video capture (ARINC818, STANAG 3350, 3G-SDI) and conversion configurations. The IC-GRA-VPX3a is able to transfer ultra-high definition over 8Gb/s via 8 PCIe Gen4 lanes.

The board is available in six versions. There is a standard 0°C to 55°C version, -20°C to +65°C, -40°C to +75°C rugged, -40°C to +85°C rugged, -40°C to +71°C conduction-cooled and -40°C to +85°C conduction-cooled operating temperature ranges.
