GPGPU Exploits NVIDIA Fermi Architecture

Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing unveils its first 3U OpenVPX general purpose graphics processing unit (GPGPU) multi-core engine, the VPX3-491 GPU application accelerator. The small form factor board features an NVIDIA GPU based on the NVIDIA Fermi architecture with 240 CUDA cores.  Integrated into subsystem, it functions as a co-processor attached to a host Intel-processor board and takes advantage of the latest PCIe expansion plane definitions in the VITA 65 OpenVPX standard to provide off the shelf backplane support for high-speed interconnection between pairs of SBC/GPU. Other features include 80-GB/s memory bandwidth, 2 GB of GDDR5 memory, 256-bit memory interface, 16-lane Gen2 PCIe interface, and dual DVI graphics outputs.
