Rugged computer server for artificial intelligence (AI) uses at the edge introduced by Curtiss-Wright

Module can speed deployment at the edge to ensure access to advanced technology - even in disconnected, intermittent, and limited environments.

The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions Division in Ashburn, Va., is introducing an enhanced version of the company's PacStar 451-NR computer server module for edge-deployed artificial intelligence (AI) and 5G communications acceleration applications.

The rugged computer server offers Intel Xeon D-1700 (Ice Lake) processors (available in 4 and 8-core variants), and includes support for high-speed NVMe data storage and Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) for remote management.

When combined with Curtiss-Wright's IQ-Core Software, the module can help speed deployment of applications at the edge, to ensure access to advanced technology, even in disconnected, intermittent, and limited (DIL) environments.

The single-slot module's Intel Xeon D-1700 processors deliver 2x floating point processing performance with support for Intel's AVX-512 Vector Neural Network Instructions (VNNI).

For rugged applications that require graphics processing unit (GPU)-class processing, Curtiss-Wright offers the PacStar 453 and PacStar 454 NVIDIA GPU enhanced server modules.
