Platforms today announced three new rugged single board computers (SBCs) based
on 3rd generation Intel Core processors. The SBC625, XVR15 and XCR15
deliver increased processing power, graphics capability, I/O bandwidth and
functional density to demanding industrial and mil/aero applications. These applications
include command/control, ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance),
radar/sonar and signal processing.
platforms are 100% compatible with their predecessors for a straightforward upgrade
path for existing users. They deliver up to 15% greater computational
horsepower, and up to 50% improved 3D graphics performance. Several COTS boards
offer support for USB 3.0 and provide up to 10x the data transfer throughput of
USB 2.0. Power consumption/heat dissipation is identical to preceding products.
XCR15 and XVR15, designed for 6U VPX, CompactPCI and VME systems, are available
in five build levels, from benign (air cooled) to fully rugged (conduction
cooled) to provide customers with optimum price/performance.
XVR15 and XCR15 are offered initially with the 2.3GHz Intel Core i7-3615QE
processor featuring Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel AVX), up to
16GBytes of DDR3 memory and a solid state disk drive of 16GBytes capacity. I/O
options include Gigabit Ethernet, SATA, DVI, VGA and audio. Supported operating
systems include Windows 7, Open Linux, Wind River Linux and VxWorks.
