  • Deep Delphi iX5 A.I. processing solution

    Unibap Deep Delphi iX5 compute solution for Intelligent Data Processing with machine learning capability.

    The DD-iX5 On-board Data processing (OBDP) solution is based on a space proven core flown in space since May 2016 and co-developed with Troxel Aerospace Industries Inc with support from the Swedish National Space Agency.

    Our computing solutions in the e20 and e21 families are compatible with the iX5 platform which provides up to 4 CPU cores, 128 GPU shader cores and an FPGA. Software development for the iX5 can be developed using the Optimized Development Kit (ODE).

    On-board artificial intelligence made easy by Unibap for applications such as:

    • Science & Technology demonstrations
    • Human assist applications
    • Autonomous vehicles operation
    • Surveillance
    • Space Situational Awareness
    • Synthetic aperture radar
    • Interplanetary exploration
    • Rapid warfighter information distribution

    This product is distributed in the U.S.A. by Moog Inc through Moog Broad Reach.

    Product information

    With DD-iX5, you can rapidly develop your software application by seamless transition between the Deep Delphi software platform running on ODE, laptop, desktop, or virtual Linux environments. The iX5 solution is physically form factor compatible with PC104 and configured as two stacked PCB boards, a standard core processing module (standard version iX5-CORE-1000) and an interface and storage extension board (standard version iX5-EXT-100).

    DD-iX5 support e20xx/e21xx computing modules with AMD64 architecture and full profile compute GPU acceleration. The DD-iX5 ships preloaded with a full Deep Delphi software package featuring Linux LUbuntu 16.04 LTS distribution with optimized packages for computer vision processing, robot control, point cloud handling, deep neural networks, and scientific packages. Examples include Octave, Python3, MySQL, SQLlite, Postgres, etc. Machine learning tools like PlaidML, Caffe, Theano, TensorFlow are optional and offer CPU acceleration, with GPU acceleration if OpenCL is supported.

    Many space related frameworks (e.g. NASA’s Operational Simulator for Small Satellites (NO3) is compatible given the x86 linux architecture. Commercial tools like Matlab®/Simulink® can also be used.

    DD-iX5 with standard extension interface board provides up to two M.2 SATA Solid State Drive slots of type 2242/2280 (512 GB x 2, 1 TB max). The iX5-CORE-1000 support onboard eMMC storage and operating system boot (64 GB) or optional Micro-SD card.
    Common sensor and payload interfaces are supported (some may require additional FPGA IP cores), e.g. Gigabit Ethernet, CAN, SerDes, PCIexpress®, LVDS, RS232/422, Isolated I2C, Isolated GPIO, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, SPI, SATA.

    The iX5 can be expanded with AI acceleration solutions such as Intel Movidius Myriad X.

    DD-IX5 is designed to fit into systems compatible with the physical layout of the PC104 standard.

    The DD-IX5 is manufactured with either ISO 610-E Class II (Engineering Development Unit, EDU) or 610-E Class III (Qualification/Flight) grade.

    A wealth of processing power, storage, input/output (IO) and options are provided on the system, including:

    • e20xx/e21xx compute solutions, up to quad-core CPU and 128 GPU shader cores
    • 2 GB DDR3 with ECC (x86)
    • 0.5 GB DDR3 with ECX (FPGA)
    • PCIexpress(R) x2 lanes v2.0 interconnect (6.4 GT/s)
    • Up to 1024 GB M.2 SATA SSD storage
    • 64 GB onboard eMMC
    • Hardware accelerated H.264 video encoding
    • 4K HDMI output
    • Prepared for Unibap SafetyChip(TM) feature for soft real-time x86 linux behavior and monitoring
