GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms introduced the SE 2 high performance 6U VME rugged graphics platform. The SE 2 features an Intel Core 2 Duo processor operating at up to 2.26GHz, an NVIDIA graphics processor (G72 or G73), and a 10 Gigabit Ethernet network interface card. The SE 2 is ideal for demanding graphics-intensive applications that will be deployed in harsh environments. Software support includes Wind River’s VxWorks 6.6, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Linux. The availability of OpenGL drivers under VxWorks means that certification to DO-178B is achievable.
GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms rolled out the OpenVPX-compatible GRA111 high performance graphics board. The GRA111 features NVIDIA’s new GT 240 GPU (graphics processing unit). It is the first rugged implementation of a CUDA-capable GPU. The GRA111 is the first member of GE Fanuc’s CUDA-enabled products family for military and aerospace embedded computing. The GRA111 board brings supercomputing capability to applications and environments that require leading edge processing such as radar, signals intelligence, and video surveillance and interpretation.
The Wind River VxWorks MILS Platform 2.0 is now available on GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms’s VPXtreme3 SBC310 3U VPX, VPXtreme6 SBC610 6U VPX, and PowerXtreme PPC9A 6U VMEbus single board computers. The MILS architecture enables applications with different data security levels, or data from different domains, to co-exist securely on a single hardware platform. The availability of VxWorks MILS Platform on GE Fanuc’s SBCs enables complex, sensitive, highly secure systems to be deployed in applications and environments where small size, low weight, and minimal power consumption are prerequisites.
