EnsembleSeries™ GSC6204 - Powerful GPU Co-Processor

6U OpenVPX GPU NVIDIA Quadro Co-Processor

By off-loading compute-intense functions to GPU co-processors, you can build in the scalable processing power to handle the most complex workloads. Commercial and defense compute-intensive applications including radar, EO/IR imagery, AI, urban air mobility, autonomous driving, cognitive EW and sensor fusion generate huge volumes of sensor and network data that requires big processing resources to extract its information in real time. Powered by NVIDIA® Quadro® TU104 GPUs, GSC6204 co-processing modules deliver the floating-point math compute performance required for efficient off-loading.


Extreme Processing Performance

GSC6204 modules incorporate the NVIDIA Turing GPU architecture to bring the latest commercial processing advancements and scalability to the embedded domain. Powered by dual Quadro TU104 processors and incorporating NVIDIA’s NVLink™ high-speed direct GPU-to-GPU interconnect technology and a PCIe architecture, these modules embed the same massive parallel processing capability found in contemporary data centers into your edge application. For enhanced performance, each GPU features NVIDIA’s Tensor Cores for mixed-precision matrix multiply and accumulate calculations in single operations, which are a key component of many AI, deep learning, and signal processing and fusion workloads.

Embedded Cognitive Computing and AI for Military Applications

Embedded Composable Data Center


GSC6204 GPU co-processing engines are a critical component of a truly composable high-performance embedded edge compute (HPEEC) environment with processing power unmatched by competing approaches. Combined with Mercury’s HDS6605 Intel® Xeon® scalable server blades, SCM6010 fast storage, SFM6126 wideband PCIe switches and streaming IOM-400 I/O modules forms a truly composable high-performance embedded edge compute (HPEEC) environment. The HPEEC approach leverages the same tools, architecture and software used in the data center, enabling your application to scale from the cloud to the edge with ease.

The Anatomy of a Rugged GPU Co-Processor Module


GSC6204 modules protect electronics, keeping them cool for long, reliable service lives and delivering consistent switch fabric performance across a broad temperature range. Our proven fifth generation of advanced packaging, cooling and interconnects technologies enable GSC6204 modules to be the first GPU powered OpenVPX co-processors that are truly rugged for applications requiring protection from harsh environments. For extreme environmental protection, GSC6204 modules are available with optional MOTS+ technologies.

Affordable, Interoperable and Upgradable
