The OpenVPX-compatible GRA111 is the second generation 3U VPX graphics board, employing the NVIDIA GT 240 GPU to bring desktop performance to the rugged Military and Aerospace market.  In addition to meeting increased demand for graphics rendering performance, the GRA111 is the first rugged implementation of a CUDA capable GPU.

  If power is the problem, can GPGPU be the solution?


The VPX form factor allows for high speed PCI Express connections to single board computers in the system. The GRA111 supports the 16-lane PCI Express implementation, providing the maximum available communication bandwidth to a CPU such as Abaco Systems SBC341. The PCI Express link will automatically adapt to the active number of lanes available, and so will work with single board computers in 8- and 4-lane configurations.

With a rich set of I/O, the GRA111 is designed to serve many of the most common video applications. Dual, independent channels mean that it is capable of driving RGB analog component video, digital DVI 1.0, and HDMI standards. In addition, the GRA111’s video input capability allows integration of sensor data using RS170, NTSC or PAL video formats.

NVIDIA CUDA is a general purpose parallel computing architecture that leverages the parallel compute engine in NVIDIA GPUs to solve many computational problems in a fraction of the time required on a CPU. It includes the CUDA Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) and the parallel compute engine of the GPU. Today developers can use C, one of the most widely used high-level programming languages, which can then be run at great performance on a CUDA enabled processor.

The GRA111 is a form, fit and function replacement for the GRA110 which will fit the existing MAGIC1 Rugged Display Computer, providing a fast-to-market solution for small high-performance graphics and GPGPU signal processing applications.
