WOLF’s versatile Video Processing Unit (VPU) board includes both an advanced NVIDIA®Quadro® PascalTM GPU and WOLF’s Frame Grabber eXtreme (FGX). This board accepts multiple simultaneous inputs, including 3G-SDI, CVBS or STANAG 3350. The video data can be routed to the powerful Pascal GPU for processing or encoding, and then output in several formats, including 3G-SDI, DisplayPort, HDMI or DVI. These modules are designed and manufactured specifically for use in the harsh environments encountered in aerospace and defense applications.
The WOLF Frame Grabber eXtreme (FGX) is the engine that provides the board with conversion of video data from one standard to another, with a wide array of video input and output options for both cutting-edge digital I/O and legacy analog I/O. The FGX has direct memory access (DMA) to the Quadro Pascal’s GPU memory for GPU processing and complex analysis. By including both the versatile FGX and a high performance Quadro Pascal GPU on one board WOLF’s I/O and processing solution avoids the SBC data rebroadcast traffic jams that commonly occur with a 2-board solution.
This module is available with rugged air-cooled or conduction cooled heat plates, and with front I/O or rear I/O configurations.
