GE Intelligent Platforms has announced that dual core versions of its rugged single board computers (SBCs) based on quad core 3rd Generation Intel Core processors are available. In addition to supporting the quad core Intel Core i7-3615QE processor, the SBC625, XVR15, and XCR15 will be offered with the dual core Intel Core i7-3555LE and Intel Core i7-3517UE processors.
The SBC625, XVR15 and XCR15 SBCs bring substantially increased processing power, graphics capability, I/O bandwidth, and functional density to customers developing demanding industrial and mil/aero applications. These include command/control, ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance), radar/sonar, and signal processing.
The new SBCs will deliver up to 15% greater computational horsepower, and up to 50% improved 3D graphics performance. Some of these new 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 are identical to those of preceding products, providing attractive performance/watt and making the new boards suitable for environments that are SWaP (size, weight and power) constrained.
The SBC625, XCR15, and XVR15 Ė designed for 6U VPX, CompactPCI, and VME systems respectively Ė are available in five build levels, from benign (air cooled) to fully rugged (conduction cooled).
In addition to offering the option of dual- or quad core processors, these three new SBCs from GE feature Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel AVX), up to 16GBytes of DDR3 memory, and a solid state disk drive of 16GBytes capacity. A broad range of I/O options are available including Gigabit Ethernet, SATA, DVI, VGA and audio. Provision of two mezzanine XMC/PMC sites enables optimum flexibility and expandability. Supported operating systems include Windows 7, Open Linux, Wind River Linux and VxWorks.
