Aitech Defense Systems Inc. in Chatsworth, Calif., is introducing the RIO-NG modular digital processor that can be customized for high-reliability industrial, space, and military embedded systems that require small size and low power consumption. The Freescale Cortex M4 ARM-based RIO-NG uses distributed processing and parallel task completion via several concurrent direct-memory-access (DMA) channels.
The parallel system-on-chip peripherals of the RIO-NG enables the device's CPU core to load only slightly by moving data, which enhances its data processing power, Aitech officials say. The CPU core's efficiency enables the clock rate to run relatively slowly, yet provides the performance of a much larger CPU in a higher-power system, company officials say. The architecture leaves the processor free to run algorithms and process incoming data in tight-control-loop embedded computing systems.
