FPGA- and Intel-based 3U VPX single-board computer for C4ISR embedded computing uses offered by Abaco

Oct. 4, 2023
SOSA-aligned SBC3513 has Intel Xeon W processor, eight cores operating at 2.6 GHz, 64 gigabytes DDR4 RAM, and 480 gigabytes nVME solid-state memory.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – AMETEK Abaco Systems in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing the SBC3513 3U VPX single-board computer for demanding command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (C4ISR) and industrial applications.

The SOSA-aligned I/O-intensive SBC3513 features the Intel Xeon W processor, formerly known as Tiger Lake H. With eight cores operating at 2.6 GHz, it offers 64 gigabytes of DDR4 RAM, and as much as 480 gigabytes of nVME solid-state memory.

The SBC3513 embedded computing board is designed with a 100 Gigabit Ethernet data plane, 25 Gigabit Ethernet control plane, and PCI Express Gen4 to the backplane, It offers a straightforward upgrade path to SBC3511 users offering many of its features but with enhanced performance and speed capabilities thanks to newer silicon and engineering.

The board's general-purpose I/O moves to its field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for latency reduction. Other upgrades are offered to NVRAM and DisplayPort, and the board consumes about 100 Watts of power.

The single-board computer offers on-board Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC’s built-in security capabilities, including an unclonable function (PUF), user-accessible hardened cryptographic blocks, asymmetric authentication, side channel attack protection, and other silicon-based AT features.

Abaco offers several firmware options as well as SDKs and other support for Windows 10/11 and Linux Fedora, Red Hat, and Ubuntu for the SBC3513.
