GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the IMP3A, which is a 3U CompactPCI single board computer. The IMP3A SBC features the latest dual core QorIQ processor technology from Freescale. The IMP3A supports the QorIQ P2010 single core processor and the QorIQ P2020 dual core processor, operating at up to 1.2GHz. Both symmetric and asymmetric processing are supported, enabling engineers to scale performance through either thread-level or application-level parallelism. A typical IMP3A application is a control system onboard a tank, armored vehicle or helicopter.
