ADLINK launches its CM5-P1000 module with Graphics Processing Capabilities from NVIDIA

ADLINK Technology Inc., a global pioneer in edge computing, announced the release of the CM5-P1000 module. The module is an industry-first solution for AI-enabled mission-critical applications. This module comes in a PCIe/104 Type 1 format, with the measurements 116 x 96mm. The intent behind its design is to meet the size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements of aerospace and defence applications. ADLINK benefits from unparalleled access to sophisticated processing technologies as well as the higher echelons of technical assistance as an NVIDIA Elite Partner.

“Engineers serving the aerospace and defense sector need access to embedded technology that offers a combination of elevated performance, small form factor and ongoing reliability. Long-term supply chain continuity must also be totally assured,” remarked Eric Kao, the General Manager of ADLINK’s Networking, Communication & Public Sector business unit. “The CM5-P1000 gives our customers the inherent design flexibility of a modular approach, plus exceptional degrees of ruggedness. In addition, this module underlines the continued importance that ADLINK sees in PC/104 and our lasting commitment to this format.”

Let’s dive into the peripherals of ADLINK’s CM5-P1000 module

This PC/104 module has 640 CUDA cores. Furthermore, it can achieve 1.8 TFLOPS performance thanks to the inclusion of an NVIDIA Quadro P1000 GPU. It has 4GB of integrated GDDR5 memory with a 128-bit memory width and a maximum bandwidth of 96GB/s. The Adlink CM5-P1000 module features a 16-lane PCIe Gen3 interface and four ultra-high definition (UHD) DisplayPort outputs.


The module provides customers with a high level of durability. Additionally, it helps sustain uptime in tough working situations, in addition to the inherent design flexibility of a modular approach. It can also withstand high altitudes, harsh temperatures, shocks, and vibrations. The module operates in a temperature range of -40°C to +85°C and can resist humidity levels of up to 96%. It can be used with either Windows 10 or Linux 64-bit operating systems.

ADLINK uses its profound expertise and broad experience in the creation of the new product as one of the pioneer firms of PC/104 technology. The module’s compact size, energy efficiency, and high-performance processing power make it appropriate for a variety of applications. These applications include radar, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), missile systems, and so on. Its utilization in factory automation and process control are some of the use cases.
