SigRAD - DPDK High Capacity Radar Solution

SigRAD is a DPDK enabled high capacity solution for signal processing and radar applications. SigRAD allows customers to turn industry standard servers into high capacity radar processing, providing FFT, matched filtering, and other signal procesing functions. 32-core and 64-core CIM PCIe accelerator cards leverage Intel's DPDK to provide high-throughput, low-latency access to data plane x86 cores.

CIM® accelerator cards are thin, light weight, and have low power consumption. For example, three (3) 32-core cards can be inserted on a single riser in a 2U industry standard server and not exceed the riser power consumption limit of 150 W. A 1U server can be configured for as many as 256 CIM accelerator cores, and a 2U server for as many as 384 cores.

CIM® accelerator cards contain direct 1 GbE to 10 GbE network connections for high throughput and low latency radar processing, including virtualized systems.
