HUNTSVILLE, Ala. Abaco Systems announced the IPN254, a rugged fourth generation 6U OpenVPX/SOSA aligned heterogeneous multiprocessor solution that leverages Abaco's partnership relationships.

According to the company, an alternative version of the IPN254 is designed to provide a straightforward, cost-effective technology insertion/upgrade solution for users of the IPN252, intended to deliver higher performance with minimal disruption. The IPN254 is designed to provide an upgrade from a third generation Intel processor to a ninth generation processor, and improves on the IPN252's 1.4 TeraFLOPS of GPU performance with 6.4 TeraFLOPS.

This combination of the latest NVIDIA Turing TU106 embedded/chip-down GPGPU with the latest generation Intel Xeon E CPU yields high processing performance in a rugged, single 6U VPX slot. Additionally, the IPN254 is designed to utilize Mellanox ConnectX-5, intended to facilitate dual 40 GigE KR4 data plane fat-pipes for increased bandwidth across the system.

The IPN254 aims to address the customer requirement for data plane bandwidth, as well as increased application- and mission-data security. It is engineered to increase overall system performance to contribute to customers' success in data-intensive digital signal processing applications including intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), high performance airborne radar, synthetic aperture radar, and ground moving target indicators.
