Kontron Introduces VX3327 3U VPX Graphics Card

Kontron VX3327 3U VPX graphics card

Kontron announced the VX3327 3U VPX graphics card. The VX3327 OpenVPX-compliant board includes the AMD Embedded Radeon E6760 GPU. It features 480 computing cores and parallel data processing performance of up to 576 GFLOPs. The Kontron VX3327 is available now. The board is ideal for compute-intense General Purpose Graphics Processing Unit (GPGPU) applications deployed in avionics and military technology that require superior situational awareness.

Kontron VX3327 3U VPX Graphics Card Features

  • ATI Radeon E6760 Silicon
  • Modular design: MXM 3.0 mezzanine
  • High-End graphics GPU, parallel processing GPGPU
  • Three independent Displays: one VGA and two DP
  • Air-cooled and rugged conduction-cooled versions
  • Supports Linux, Windows and VxWorks operating systems

The Kontron OpenVPX-compliant 3U VPX graphics card VX3327 is designed for long-term available GPGPU applications in avionics and military technology. It supports the OpenCL programming language as well as AMD’s Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) technology for supercomputing capabilities.

The Kontron VX3327 offers a scalable architecture, which can be adapted accordingly to meet the growing demands on GPGPU. A link-data rate per lane from 1.62 GHz to 5.4 GHz is supported and fast graphic memory of 1 GB GDDR5 with 128 bits and 800 MHz are also featured. The Unified Video Decoder of the GPU supports H.264, VC-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 videostream decoding and effectively unburdens the host-processor system.

The Kontron VX3327 supports up to three independent displays through one VGA interface and two DisplayPorts, available as front or rear I/Os. Up to 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz, 24 bpp with a 2.7 GHz link or up to 2560 x 2048 @ 60 Hz, 30 bpp with a 5.4 GHz link are further supported. The VPX graphics card is available either in air-cooled (0°C to +55°C) one inch (5HP) or in conduction-cooled (-40°C to +85°C) 0.8 inch (4HP) variants.
