…”The proliferation of connected systems has been enabled by the U.S. military embrace of the commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) revolution.
“So, it’s not uncommon now to have a hybrid type of architecture where a traditional general-purpose GPGPU is paired with a graphics processing engine to accelerate the computing capabilities of that system,” Southworth says. “And that may be done in a very small form factor way as a stand-alone system. That’s a shoebox-sized computer or smaller, or it could be something that is in a blade form factor that has many different compute engines on a backplane within an architecture.”
