Stouffville, ON – March 8, 2021 - WOLF Advanced Technology (WOLF) is pleased to announce the upcoming production of the SOSA™ aligned VPX3U-RTX5000E-16PCIE (WOLF-134C), which is suited for high bandwidth, low latency, HPEC GPU applications like radar processing, video processing, C4ISR, and artificial intelligence. Powered by NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ 5000 graphics, with up to 10.9 TFLOPS of performance, this design aligns with SOSA slot profile 14.6.13 and features a PCIe Gen4 switch with 16 lanes of PCIe divided between the P1 and P2 connectors.
“We are absolutely committed to enabling architectures of the future,” said Greg Maynard, WOLF CTO, “and this NVIDIA Turing architecture GPU module provides the first fully SOSA Aligned 14.6.13 slot profile with a 16 lane PCI Express expansion plane with bus speeds up to PCIe Gen4 capability.”
“This also effectively doubles the bandwidth that can be handled by this module and is a significant improvement in SWAP constrained 3U VPX applications,” added Maynard.
The VPX3U-RTX5000E-16PCIE employs an advanced thermal-mechanical metal design to achieve lower thermal resistance to enable the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 to run at faster clock speeds, thereby achieving higher compute performance.
