The rugged single board computers are available in five build levels, including air- and conduction cooled.
GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the SBC324 3U OpenVPX rugged single board computer. The SBC324 is based on the 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 processors (codenamed Sandy Bridge). The SBC324 SBC features a quad core processor (up to 2.1GH), up to 8GBytes of DDR3 1.333GHz memory, a range of PCI Express backplane configurations, an XMC site with I/O, two 10/100/1000BaseT Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, VGA graphics, HD audio, two SATA channels, four USB 2.0 ports, a PS/2 keyboard/mouse port, and two RS-232/422 COM ports. The SBC is ideal for size-, weight- and power-constrained applications in harsh environments (ie: unmanned vehicles).
GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the CRS-C2P-3CC1 and CRS-C3P-3CB1 off-the-shelf embedded systems for military vehicles. The CRS-C2P-3CC1 and CRS-C3P-3CB1 feature Freescale-based single board computer, VxWorks real-time operating system, 512Mbytes of RAM, 256MB of Flash memory, Ethernet, serial, USB, MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, and discrete I/O. The CompactPCI-based computer systems are ideal for UAVs, manned and unmanned ground vehicles and launch vehicles.
GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the PCIE-5565PIORC low profile PCI Express reflective memory node card. A reflective memory network is a type of shared memory system that enables multiple, separate computers to share a common set of data. Reflective memory autonomously replicates the contents of one processor’s memory to the memory nodes of all other network members. The PCIE-5565PIORC board is ideal for real-time applications like simulation and training, industrial process control and data streaming and acquisition.
GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the SBC624 single board computer. The 6U OpenVPX SBC supports the second generation Intel Core i7 processors (formerly codenamed Sandy Bridge) — including the 2.1GHz quad core Intel Core i7 processor. The SBC624 is available in five build versions from benign to fully rugged. 3U VPX, 6U VME and 6U CompactPCI single board computers will be available later. The GE SBC624 single board computer is ideal for signal processing in intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, radar and sonar.
GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the PPC10A rugged 6U VME single board computer. The PPC10A SBC is based on the Freescale QorIQ P4080 8-core processor. The board features either eight or four e500mc cores (each operating at up to 1.5GHz), up to 8 GBytes of dual channel DDR3 memory, two XMC/PMC sites, AFIX site, two Gigabit Ethernet ports (with an additional two ports optionally available), two Serial ATA ports, two USB 2.0 ports (three additional USB 2.0 ports are optionally available) and 31 GPIO ports.
GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the SBC312 3U VPX single board computer (SBC). The SBC312 SBC is OpenVPX-compliant. It supports the Freescale QorIQ 8-core P4080 and 4-core P4040 processors.
