AMETEK Abaco Systems Graphics and Video Processing Card Delivers SOSA-Aligned, NVIDIA Ampere 4500 Performance


WASHINGTON — October 10, 2022 AMETEK Abaco Systems today introduced its first graphics and video processing card – the GRA116S – based on the NVIDIA® Ampere™ GPGPU and aligned to the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA™) Technical Standard.  

Unveiled at the 2022 AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition, the 3U VPX form factor card is built on the new NVIDIA Ampere 4500 general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPGPU). According to the manufacturer, the Ampere 4500 offers latest generation RT, tensor and CUDA cores, as well as PCIe Gen 4 and NVIDIA video codecs. 

Delivering higher speeds and more bandwidth, the rugged, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) card simplifies avionics, ground transportation, radar, and other installations and reduces integration risks. It features PCIe Gen 4 connections for much faster data transfer when compared to previous generations, reaching up to 16GT/s.  

“The GRA116S shows our commitment to the DoD, the OpenGroup, and industry to deliver more technology aligned to the SOSA standard,” said Mike Underwood, Abaco division vice president / business unit manager. “It will give integrators and end users confidence Abaco has the solution they need and keep them at the forefront of technology without replacing existing hardware.”
