Mercury Systems Launches 6U OpenVPX Module with Dual NVIDIA Pascal GPUs

New Ensemble Series GSC6202 Graphics Streaming Compute Module Optimized for Image Processing and Artificial Intelligence

ANDOVER, Mass.  Nov. 16, 2017  Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, announced the Ensemble® 6000 Series GSC6202 6U OpenVPX™ general purpose graphics processor unit (GPGPU) module with two NVIDIA® Pascal™ or Maxwell™ architecture GPU processors. The module’s immense parallel computing capability is ideal for image processing, artificial intelligence, and computational neural networks in electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR), radar signal processing, and electronic warfare (EW) applications.


The GSC6202 GPGPU module features two NVIDIA Pascal or Maxwell-class GPUs with up to a total of 4096 CUDA® cores and 32 GB memory. The GPUs are connected to a PCI Express Gen 3.0 switch network with dual x16 connections to the backplane. This balanced architecture provides the processing power, memory, and I/O for the most challenging image processing, radar processing, or cognitive and adaptive algorithms for agile threat assessment and response. Mercury’s advanced cooling technology standards such as Air Flow-By™ cooling and Liquid Flow-Through cooling enable the use of the fastest GPU chips and PCI Express switches running at full speed even in rugged environments.

“The NVIDA Pascal GPU architecture significantly expands GPU computing from image and radar processing to neural networks and artificial intelligence,” said Shaun McQuaid, Director Product Management. “Many of our customers want to apply deep learning to their sensor processing, and this architecture provides an order of magnitude increase in deep learning performance.”

As part of the Ensemble Series pre-integrated solutions, the GSC6202 GPGPU module implements the advanced system management functionality specified in VITA 46.11 using the standard I2C bus and intelligent platform management controller (IPMC) to enable remote monitoring, event management, hardware revision and health status. Mercury’s GPGPU modules are the only ones in the embedded industry to include an IPMC in the standard product.

Mercury’s Ensemble Series of embedded compute building blocks has the highest performance and the broadest selection available in the industry today. Each open system architecture building block is engineered for best commercial performance and most rugged packaging. The ease of pre-integration makes the Ensemble compute ecosystem the best choice for designers of dense, powerful embedded COTS processing solutions.
