High Performance Computing market size

MEN CompactPCI Serial.jpgEmbedded computing is moving into the world of “Big Data” and that means lots of scalable, high performance computing. RADAR, SIG-INT and EW are data intensive applications thatneed embedded computers that are able to process the vast amounts of data and do it quickly. Many applications in defense and aerospace must process their way through this “Big Data.”

Fortunately, the capability of high performance computing continues to evolve as technology advances. Processors get faster, memories larger, and interconnect pipes get bigger. All of this adds up to greater performance in smaller packages, packages that make it easier to embed these platforms in more applications. What once took racks of computers can now be reduced to a single rack or system the size of a shoe box or smaller.

High performance embedded computing (HPEC) takes much of its lead from the high performance computing (HPC) technology found in data centers, taking concepts and extending them to the more environmentally demanding conditions in embedded computing applications. Processor off-loading, cluster computing, distributed architectures, and open source software are but a few of the traits of high performance computing that are being passed on to HPEC.

For the military and aerospace embedded markets, additional requirements must be met. Size, weight, and power (SWaP) must be optimized for embedding in smaller systems. Long product life cycles and long term product support must match the life cycle of the deployed systems. Reliable and deterministic operation is mandatory and the platforms must be able to be deployed in everything from benign to harsh environments. As a result, boards and systems are made smaller, modified to run in extended thermal ranges and rugged environments.
