The UltraVision Research Scanner System incorporates a Personal Computer (PC) which facilitates the User Interface, image storage and communications.
Communications between the scanner and the PC utilize one channel of the industry standard Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) through a Thunderbolt cable which communicates at 400 mega-bytes per second. This thin Thunderbolt cable allows the Research Platform to separate the components
WinProbe has standardized on the Mac Book Pro 15 inch Retina operating in the Windows as the PC for its quality, reliability, transportability and excellent display.
In the clinical system an Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing) 7i7 is used as the PC in most systems. This is a 4 inch by 4 inch processor using the 14 nm process to obtain an 28 watts of total dissipated power and clock speeds of 4 GHz. This represents the absolute latest in PC technology and Intel provides the board with a 3 year warrantee. This board provides the GPU and the CPU and rins Windows.
Four gigabytes of memory physically resides in the scanner's console but is mapped into the PC's memory at boot up which provides for the ultimate speed in data transfers. Thunderbolt link allows the PC to seamlessly process these images in the NVIDA Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) which contains hundreds of shader cores to seamlessly create and process the images at very high frame rates.
Where possible the windows standards and functions have been adhered to but in clinical systems features like connecting to the Internet or running other programs have been disabled for regulatory compliance and cyber security.
