Edge applications need support for more powerful, deployable computing subsystems
that can process extremely high bandwidth, ever-growing sensor data streams and exploit
the rapidly emerging capabilities of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
This paper highlights a novel architectural approach that addresses this growing need by
combining innovative data processor unit (DPU) technology with high-performance graphics
processing units (GPUs) in a rugged, SWaP-optimized configuration—without the need for an
x86 CPU host.
