GE 3U VPX single-board computer features 3rd Generation Intel Core quad-core processor technology, x16 PCI Express GPGPU connectivity for HPEC

GE

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., 21 May 2012. GE Intelligent Platforms has unveiled the SBC325, a rugged single-board computer (SBC) based on 3rd Generation Intel Core quad-core processor technology.

It is intended to bring greater processing performance to customers using the 3U VPX form factor to develop and deploy demanding industrial and mil-aero applications, such as command/control; intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR), radar/sonar, and signal processing. The latest Intel Core processors offer enhanced performance per watt and can maintain full performance at more elevated temperatures than the previous generation, enabling the development of new capabilities in small form factor applications.


“Many of our customers are working on demanding applications that are highly constrained in terms of size, weight and power--and the 3U VPX SBC325 provides an outstanding solution,” says Rod Rice, general manager, military & aerospace products, GE Intelligent Platforms. “The improved thermal performance of the new Intel processor helps to deliver improved response times and throughput and reduce the thermal footprint of a solution, or reduce the number of boards required in a system, minimizing its size and weight.”

The SBC325 is available in five build levels, from benign (air cooled) to rugged (conduction cooled) to provide customers with optimum price/performance.

The SBC325 is offered initially with the 2.1GHz Intel Core i7-3612QE processor featuring Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel AVX), up to 8GBytes of DDR3 memory and a solid-state disk drive of up to 32GBytes capacity. These enhanced capabilities are complemented by a broad range of I/O options including Gigabit Ethernet, SATA, USB, and audio. Supported operating systems include Windows 7, Open Linux, Wind River Linux, and VxWorks.
