GE Intelligent Platforms introduces the SBC325 3U VPX single board computer

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., 11 May 2012. GE Intelligent Platforms announced their new rugged single board computer (SBC) based on 3rd Generation Intel Core quad core processor technology. The SBC325 uses the 3U VPX form factor and is designed for military and aerospace applications such as command/control, ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance), radar/sonar and signal processing.

3rd Generation Intel Core processors can maintain full performance at more elevated temperatures than the previous generation, offering an opportunity for the development of new capabilities in small form factor applications.

The SBC325 can be used with a mezzanine XMC/PMC site for flexibility and expandability or a quad fat-pipe (x16 PCI Express) for connectivity to general-purpose computing on graphics processing units (GPGPUs), making it suitable for many different High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) applications.

The new OpenVPX platform is 100% compatible with the previous two generations in GE's 3U VPXcel3 family, allowing for a simple upgrade path for existing users.

The SBC325 is available in five build levels, from benign (air cooled) to fully rugged (conduction cooled).

The SBC325 is initially offered 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. It also features a range of I/O options including Gigabit Ethernet, SATA, USB and audio.

Operating systems that the SBC325 supports are Windows 7, Open Linux, Wind River Linux and VxWorks.
