Although adopting this fourth generation is a predictable path forward for mid-tier platform and appliance vendors, few have the expertise and experience to design complex systems utilizing these data rates.
One Stop Systems (OSS) has provided this critical expertise and delivered enabling system building blocks to the market across each of the PCI Express generation transitions. They have led each of thes transitions by delivering the first host interface card/cable solutions supporting external expansion chassis. Gen 4.0 is no exception. OSS is currently working with a number of customers developing their Gen 4.0 bases solutions and anticipates upgrading their entire product line of multi-GPU and flash storage integrated adn expansion systems to Gen 4.0 this year.
A long-haul truck cruises by you on Interstate 10 in west Texas. You get a brief wave from the driver who seems unfocused on the road ahead. It’s hot and the road is bumpy. You didn’t realize it but you just encountered an autonomous driving truck in development, testing out the latest version of its Artificial Intelligence algorithms. The truck is loaded with unseen video cameras, lidar, radar and infer-red sensors. As it travels along it is seeing its environment and its on-board computers are making the thousands of little decisions that keep it moving safely to its prescribed destination. The driver is a safety layer that will be removed in future iterations of the design.
Adoption of the latest HPC and AI technologies in autonomous vehicles is creating a surge in vehicle real-time data processing capabilities. The growth in number, speed and resolution of vehicle sensors and related compute performance in autonomous vehicles has in turn led to increased demand for high-capacity, high-throughput storage. Effective storage within autonomous vehicles must meet three primary criteria: throughput to match the capture and processing rates, a rapid data transfer workflow for offloading the captured data, and a rugged environmental design to operate in any autonomous vehicle conditions.
