Klas Announces TRX D16, the First Integrated Cloud-Scale Performance Developer Server, and Vehicle Data Logger Platform

Klas, a global leader in rugged edge technology solutions, is proud to
unveil its most advanced vehicle data logging solution yet – the TRX D16.
This cutting-edge device combines high-performance computing (HPC) and
storage into a single platform, revolutionizing ADAS/AD development and data
logging for both lab and in-vehicle use.

The TRX D16 introduces transformational advancements to in-vehicle computing
and logging and unleashes technology confined to the cloud or extremely
large loggers up to this point. Now, high-end computing and logging can be
fitted to any vehicle platform, allowing engineers to continue pushing the
limits of ADAS/AD.

With TRX D16, automotive engineers gain a high-performance and customizable
platform to accommodate the evolving vehicle sensor stack and support
compute-intensive software development of AI/ML training, inference, and
simulation. Furthermore, the platform delivers 200Gbps of sustained logging
speeds and 480TB of data storage to capture data from high-speed
ethernet-based cameras, with support for denser radar and lidar point cloud

Designed rugged, the TRX D16 is equally at home in the lab and the vehicle.
Engineers can transfer the entire development environment workbench to the
vehicle for continued development and integration of new functionality with
real-world drive test scenarios.

“As a single platform, the multi-purpose TRX D16 minimizes the number of
disparate systems in the vehicle and reduces the effort of moving from the
lab to the vehicle,” said Frank Murray, CTO of Klas. “By reducing the time
spent preparing the vehicle, engineers can focus on productive tasks of
real-world validation, which includes high-performance computing for AI
testing. At a program level, the result is the improved time to market for
new ADAS/AD functionality.”

TRX D16 key features

The TRX D16 is designed rugged to the highest specifications of MIL-STD-461
and 810G/H to withstand the extremes of temperature, vibration and shock.

High performance computing: AMD EPYCT 7713P (64 core) processor and up to
768GB of RAM, designed for embedded and harsh environments in vehicles.
Open GPU options: Numerous GPU PCIe card options are supported, allowing for
more flexible and cost-effective AI/ML development environments.
Hot-swappable storage: 480 TB storage (16x SSDs) split over two removable
cassettes allows test vehicles to return to the road in minutes with minimal
IT effort.
High disk write speeds: SAS4 SED drives, plus integrated RAID for secure
data capture from an increased number of high-bandwidth sensors.
High speed connectivity: 2x 100GbE interfaces to transfer valuable data to
engineering HIL/SIL workbenches.
Flexible expansion: 2x PCIe (Gen 4) interfaces for custom I/O – automotive
Ethernet, FPGA based SmartNICs, GMSL/FPD-Link/GVIF based cameras, or
