2slotsffvpxforwebsiteAs the role played by autonomous vehicles (airborne, ground mobile, and underwater) becomes more and more complex, the data gathering and processing demands made on their payloads and on mission and flight management has grown by leaps and bounds. Of course, this has also meant that the amount of equipment the vehicle must carry has grown as well — and every gram of material carried by an autonomous vehicle is precious, circumscribing both its fuel and power budgets as well as its total payload.

Weighing in at a SWaP-friendly under 8lb, designed in collaboration with industry leader ADLINK, and featuring ADLINK processor blades and Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), LCR Embedded Systems’ fully integrated, conduction-cooled, featherweight 2-Slot VPX System (shown at right) will break new ground in addressing these concerns and allow for the massive expansion of payload performance and processing power for autonomous vehicles.

The 2-Slot VPX System will feature ADLINK’s VPX3010 processor blade based on the Intel® Xeon® processor D, and the second slot can hold either a Gigabit Ethernet switch or an ADLINK VPX3G10 Graphics Processing Unit.
